Dr Phil, the Dr Phil Show, has become a cult favourite among viewers, with the show’s presenter and host, Russell Brand, becoming the latest celebrity to sign on.
Now Dr Phil has told The Independent that he’s retiring from the show, with Brand having also expressed interest in a comeback.
“I’ve decided to leave,” Dr Phil told The New York Times.
“It’s been a great ride and I’m happy to have given it so many people, especially the people who love my show.”
Dr Phil said that Brand’s interest in returning to the show was not just a matter of loyalty to the programme, but also his desire to “make the most of my time here”.
Dr Brand, who has also been linked to the ABC’s The Voice, has also confirmed that he is “excited” about a possible return to the Dr Philip Show. “
He’s been here for almost 20 years now, and we’ve been very fortunate to work with him for that time.”
Dr Brand, who has also been linked to the ABC’s The Voice, has also confirmed that he is “excited” about a possible return to the Dr Philip Show.
“There is a certain feeling of satisfaction and relief when you have a show where you have the people you have got, and you’re just happy to see them,” Brand told the Times.
“I’ve always felt that I’ve been a bit like a friend to Russell.
He’s very much a friend of mine.

In a statement released by the Dr Phillys, the show said it was “shocked” by the reports of Brand’s departure.
Dr Phil said he hoped to be around for “many years to come” and thanked fans for their support.
In the statement, he said: “I want to thank the people for their love, support and patience during this challenging time.
As always, I’m always listening and will be taking lots of calls and texts to let you know what I’m doing.”
