Jeremy Kyle will host TalkTV’s primetime Piers Morgan Uncensored through August.
Piers will take time out to film a new series of his true crime documentaries.
Jeremy takes over from Monday 1st August and will host the show for five weeks. Piers will return to the show on Monday 5th September.
Piers said: “I can imagine no finer broadcaster to keep my seat warm. Well, I can, but they weren’t available. I’m sure he’ll do his best.”
Jeremy joined TalkRadio in September 2021 as host of the Drivetime show. He grew record audiences for the show, which also ran on all TalkTV platforms from the launch of the station in April.
It was also announced that Jeremy is set to host a new primetime show on TalkTV from the autumn, delivering a review of the day’s news.
“It is an honour and a privilege to take the helm on Uncensored while Piers is away. He is the pre-eminent broadcaster of his generation. At least that’s what he told me to say,” Jeremy Kyle said.
“I’m looking forward to keeping his audiences in the UK, US, Australia and beyond informed, entertained and engaged with the best guests, the most challenging interviews and plenty of fun.”
TalkTV is available in the UK on Sky Channel 526, Sky Glass 508, Virgin Media Channel 627, Freeview Channel 237 and Freesat Channel 217.
TalkTV is also streamed via Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Samsung TV Plus and on YouTube, as well as via the Talk.TV website and TalkTV iOS and Android apps.
