"Vic says I need to set up a side business by bottling it because I’m 58 and I’ve only got one testicle, but everyone knows that anyway.

"It’s a baby girl, she’s due early next year, and we’re over the moon as our family is complete."

The former host of The Jeremy Kyle Show was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2012. He underwent chemotherapy to treat the disease and had the affected testicle removed.

Kyle said of having another child: "The other kids are really happy, although my eldest Harriet thinks I need sectioning.

“I personally think it’s my late parents having a laugh from up above, to be honest.

“When I got offered the new TalkTV breakfast show it was a no brainer, because we’re not going to get any flippin’ sleep for the next two years anyway!”

The TalkTV presenter is father to daughter Harriet, 33, from his first marriage to Kirsty Rowley in 1989. She welcomed her own son in 2018, making Kyle a grandfather.

He has three children with his second wife Carla Germaine - Alice, 19 and Ava, 18, and Henry, 14.

He and Germaine separated in 2015 and in 2018 he announced his engagement to Burton, who was his children's nanny.

They married in 2021 having welcomed son Oliver in 2020.

Paying tribute to Burton on their wedding day Kyle told The Sun: "Vick’s been my rock in my darkest times.

"So to see her today, having such fun enjoying the wedding of her dreams, was perfect."

The Jeremy Kyle Show was cancelled by ITV in May 2019 after guest Steve Dymond died a week after failing a lie detector test filmed for the reality show. Dymond, 63, was believed to have taken his own life. The inquest into his death eventually took place in June 2023.

After Dymond's death from a drug overdose, Ofcom said programmes such as The Jeremy Kyle Show and Love Island need to make sure that they look after their contributors following concerns about mental health.

In 2022 Channel 4 aired documentary Jeremy Kyle Show: Death on Daytime, featuring ex-production staff claiming guests were lied to, baited and manipulated in order to provoke them into fighting on the show.
