Kyle Sandilands has confirmed he is returning to TEN nearly 10 years after being fired by a “dog of a network” (his words yesterday).
He will film a pilot Trial By Kyle in which he plays mediator in disputes and disagreements.
On KIIS FM Sandilands yesterday told co-host Jackie O, “I’m known as a judge. Now a couple of months ago Jackie you mentioned in ‘O News’ that there was some rumours that I was going to be doing some Judge Judy style show at Channel TEN.”
He confirmed he had signed off on the project.
“It’s sort of like a Judge Judy thing, but it’s called Trial By Kyle” adding, “Celebrities going up against photographers, we’ve already got one of those locked in.”
The project appears to be for TEN’s Pilot week, tipped for November, with Sandilands potentially producing. He also floated the possibility of experts to offer advice on specific cases.
TEN is yet to confirm the show.
Sandilands was fired from Australian Idol in 2009 after a controversial radio segment with a lie detector and a 17 year old girl. He last narrated Meet the Hockers for 9GO! which he also produced.
