Jeremy Kyle has spent a large amount of time in America filming a US version of his fiery chat-show. It was when he was returning to the UK for Christmas that he discovered a lump.
As you may have read in the press this morning, Jeremy was diagnosed with cancer just before Christmas. After an operation and chemotherapy treatment, I’m pleased to say he’s now on the mend.
It’s been a really tough couple of months for him and his family but he wanted to let you all know that he appreciates your continuing support. Jeremy will be back at work next week to start filming new shows which you’ll see on TV very soon. – Statement on show’s Facebook page
A spokesperson for Kyle has said he is currently resting abroad following surgery.
The Jeremy Kyle Show airs weekdays at 9.25am on ITV.
