Kanye West is set to return to 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'.

The outspoken rap star has had a famously turbulent relationship with the American TV host, with the duo having previously clashed over Twitter, but Jimmy has confirmed that he will be making a return to the show on Thursday (09.08.18).

He wrote on the micro-blogging website: ''On Thursday night, HURRICANE KANYE strikes @JimmyKimmelLive! @KanyeWest (sic)''

Kanye, 41 - who is married to reality TV star Kim Kardashian West - has also retweeted the message.

The 'Famous' rapper previously clashed with Jimmy after the comedian made fun of Kanye in a parody of an interview he conducted with the BBC in 2013.

Jimmy - who described the interview as ''weird'' - joked: ''Does Kanye West know he's not supposed to be his own hype man?''

But Kanye responded the the comments on Twitter, saying: ''JIMMY KIMMEL IS OUT OF LINE TO TRY AND SPOOF IN ANY WAY THE FIRST PIECE OF HONEST MEDIA IN YEARS (sic)''

And the TV host replied: ''apparently @KanyeWest is VERY VERY ANGRY with me.... (sic)''

However, the duo later resolved their feud when Kanye appeared on the show in October last year, and Jimmy has since admitted that he relished their spat.

He said: ''I live for moments like that. When I got in a Twitter battle with Kanye, I was so happy.

''My wife makes fun of me. She's like, 'You are so happy right now.' I'm absolutely beaming. I feel very confident in a situation like that.''

During his interview with the BBC in 2013, Kanye described himself as the ''number one rock star on the planet''.

He added: ''We the real rock stars and I'm the biggest of all of them.''
