Jeremy Kyle admits to being ‘nervous’ at radio show launch after ‘tragic’ death of Portsmouth TV show attendee Steve Dymond
The talk show host’s clashing series was put on hold by the broadcaster indefinitely in May 2019 following the death of attendee Steve Dymond, 63, of Portsmouth, a week after filming a show on featuring.
The program, which had appeared regularly in the television program schedule since 2005, was definitively deleted following calls for its cancellation by members of Parliament and the public.
A pre-inquiry hearing last year was informed that Mr Kyle would be treated as an “interested person” in the full investigation, who would be treated as someone who “caused or contributed” to Mr’s death. Dymond.

Mr Kyle started his new driving time show by addressing his departure directly, but told listeners he couldn’t go into details for “legal reasons.”
Kicking off his three-hour program, he said, âIt’s really weird. I worked in television for 15 years, before that I had done a lot of radio, and today I find myself quite nervous.
‘It’s been a long time. I was walking around this morning and I was like, ‘How do I start something like this? What are you saying?’
âLet’s start by talking about the one thing people would expect me to talk about, which I did on television for 14 and a half years, which I’m very proud of. But we will know that there has been a situation, a tragic situation, and a lot has been written and a lot has been said.
âFor legal reasons – that’s a fact – I can’t talk about it. But let me tell you this. When I can, I will and it will be on this radio station. But for now, it’s a closed chapter. What is important is this radio.
Kyle said the past two years have been “good on the one hand” due to the birth of his son Oliver.
He also recalled promising his father, who died six weeks ago, that he would return to work in broadcasting.
Urging listeners to stick with the program, he added: âGive us a chance. Rome was not built in a day.
