Trisha’s talk show was one of the most popular daytime telly programmes in the Noughties.
It first aired on ITV from 2005 to 2009 but in 2012 moved across to Channel 5.
Unfortunately, it was cancelled after two years. Trisha then took her show to the US – but sadly, it was canned after two series.
Despite living in America, Trisha regularly makes appearances on British telly – recent shows include Jeremy Vince, Loose Women and Good Morning Britain.
The Sun revealed Trisha has been “desperate” to return to daytime television, with a source saying: “Trisha would love to bring her chat show back and is just looking for the right deal.

Trisha also appeared on the 2020 series of Dancing on Ice alongside 11 other celebrities.
Did Trisha Goddard beat cancer?
The mother-of-two was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2008 and she underwent chemotherapy while hosting her show.
Speaking about her battle with cancer, Trisha explained to the Sunday Mirror: “I never imagined I’d still be alive now, let alone make it to see 60. I can’t even think about what turning 60 actually means.
“I’m just b****y glad I’m still alive. And I can’t say the cancer won’t ever come back – I don’t know that, but I’ll do everything I can to help my health.”
Trisha gushed that her new clean living lifestyle has left her looking and feeling better than she has in years.
The star revealed she now runs at least five miles a day, practises resistance-based workouts while she has cut out meat and soya from her diet in order to keep herself in tip top form.
