Talk show host Jeremy Kyle 'making good progress' after testicular cancer treatment
Wednesday 30 January 2013
TV host Jeremy Kyle is recovering after treatment for testicular cancer.
The presenter, 47, has taken a break from recording his ITV daytime show as he recuperates abroad.
He is understood to have had chemotherapy following the discovery of a growth late last year.
Kyle has hosted his TV programme for seven and a half years, putting dysfunctional relationships in the spotlight, and many have criticised it for glorifying "broken Britain".
Last week his programme was nominated for the National Television Awards for the best daytime TV show award, although it missed out to This Morning.
An ITV spokeswoman said: "We wish Jeremy well and are pleased that he is making such good progress.
"We hope that he is back on his feet soon and look forward to him returning to work when he is ready."
Kyle was a salesman before his move into broadcasting, hosting programmes in local radio. He went on to present his Virgin Confessions show on Virgin Radio before landing his TV slot after Trisha Goddard left her daytime ITV series to head to Channel 5.
Kyle has also launched his programme in the US and has fronted other shows for ITV.
In his autobiography, I'm Only Being Honest, the twice-married presenter talked about how he suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder.
