A former Jeremy Kyle guest thinks the host shouldn’t ‘be allowed’ to make a comeback as ‘no one would ever trust what he says’.
Jeremy’s comeback was confirmed on Thursday as his agent revealed he will ‘have his say’ after a year of ‘battling the unimaginable consequences’.
The presenter’s representative took to social media telling followers to ‘watch this space’ as she shared a photo of the star, along with a lengthy post.
Although following the announcement, Kane Manning, who appeared on the show on 4 July 2017, told Metro.co.uk that ‘it’s too late’ for the 54-year-old to reboot his career.
‘When I heard about it, I couldn’t believe it as it has come out of nowhere,’ Kane began.
‘He got all of that backlash before so he thought he’d have a break, but does he think he can come back and pretend nothing has happened? The damage has been done now and no one would ever trust what he says.’
‘He shouldn’t be allowed to come back, he has left it too late. He won’t be able to have a TV career, look at the damage he caused there’s nothing that will come back from that.’
The Jeremy Kyle Show was pulled off the air in May 2019 after guest Steve Dymond, 62, died by suicide following an appearance on the show where he failed a lie detector test.
Mr Dymond was found dead in his home just days after appearing on the programme leading to its immediate cancellation, sparking a huge debate about the programme’s aftercare procedure and moral compass.
And while the ITV host has remained silent until now, his rep Claire Powell revealed he will be back very soon to have his say.
In the Instagram post where she made the announcement, Claire began: ‘So pleased to welcome the very talented and very real … Jeremy Kyle exclusively to @the_can_group For 14 years, Jeremy Kyle dominated Daytime TV with his hugely successful eponymous talk show.
‘He’s also proved a hit in prime time, fronting five successful series of his investigative current affairs brand, The Kyle Files.. Jeremy’s runaway UK success was the catalyst for two syndicated US series as well as stints presenting two other ITV juggernauts, This Morning and Good Morning Britain. [sic]’
The post continued: ‘Jeremy first came to prominence as a Sony Award-winning radio host who changed the game at BRMB, Virgin Radio, Capital FM, talkSPORT and talkRADIO. Known for his honest, engaging opinions, Jeremy has also authored numerous columns for The Sun and a bestselling book for Hodder & Stoughton.
‘A committed father and family man, he’s also a cancer survivor who has miraculously just welcomed a new son (and grandson!) into the world.’
Claire went on to explain that after a tough year the 54-year-old would be ‘back soon to have his say’.
‘WATCH THIS SPACE!’ she wrote.
However, Kane believes that if The Jeremy Kyle Show ever did come back, it would put more people at risk.
He continued: ‘Personally if it does come back and he has his say, it’s too late, even if he apologises it’s not good enough because it’s almost been a year since Steve’s death.
‘Steve Dymond’s family are still grieving, it would be good if he apologised a year ago, but he will be reminded of all that backlash and that no one wants him back.’
‘I mean everyone deserves a second chance but in my opinion, it is pointless, no one will listen,’ he added.
‘I wouldn’t trust anything he said. He won’t change, the damage is done.’
