Adam Giles, the former Northern Territory chief minister and Sky News host responsible for a matey interview with far-right nationalist Blair Cottrell, is returning to the network after two months off-air.

Giles' show, The Adam Giles Show, was put into recess in August after he hosted Cottrell as a guest without challenging his views and public comments that have included pro-Nazi statements.

Giles and Sky News were heavily criticised over the interview, including by daytime Sky News presenters David Speers and Laura Jayes. Cottrell responded to Jayes' criticism with a rape threat that got him suspended (but only temporarily) from Twitter.
