Jeremy Kyle's new management has announced that he will be making a return to the spotlight this year after his show was axed following the suicide of a former guest.
But another guest who once appeared on the ITV programme has slammed the announcement, saying the host "shouldn't be allowed" back on TV.
Kane Manning, who appeared on The Jeremy Kyle Show on July 4 2017, insisted "it's too late" to revive Kyle's career .
He told Metro.co.uk : "When I heard about it, I couldn't believe it as it has come out of nowhere. 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."
Kane added: "I mean everyone deserves a second chance but in my opinion, it is pointless, no one will listen."
Mirror Online has contacted Jeremy Kyle's reps for comment.
The Jeremy Kyle Show ran for 3,320 episodes over 14 years but was permanently scraped following the death of Steve Dymond, 63, who took his own life.
On Thursday night talent manager Claire Powell, who also represents Peter Andre, announced that Kyle is making a comeback and will "have his say" after "battling the unimaginable consequences" of Mr Dymond's death.
"So pleased to welcome the very talented and very real … Jeremy Kyle exclusively to @the_can_group," she wrote on Instagram .
"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.
"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."
She added: "WATCH THIS SPACE!"
Jeremy is still yet to address the death of guest Steve, who took his own life days after filming for The Jeremy Kyle Show.
During his stint, Steve failed a lie detector test and was said to be crushed by the results
Jeremy refused to attend last summer's Digital, Culture, Media And Sport Committee hearing as MPs probed the aftercare provided by makers of reality TV.
Many former guests alleged they'd been plied with booze and wound up by producers before getting on the infamous stage, and some spoke of how the lack of aftercare left them suicidal and ostracised by their communities.
