Sharon Osbourne announced she has joined TalkTV to prepare for her own primetime show.
The 69-year-old was previously a cast member on CBS’s The Talk but was terminated after her controversial comments.
She defended Piers Morgan’s negative comments about Meghan Markle last March, which led to a heated exchange with co-host Sheryl Underwood.
A clip of her comments about the Duchess of Sussex’s skin color also resurfaced that same month.
And now, a year later, it has been confirmed that the star will host a new one-hour weekly program on current affairs, called The Talk.
Announcing the news today, Sharon told fans: “I am delighted to be working with News UK, the executive team and my good friend Piers.
“Check out this space for some interesting and heated debates from all of us.”
The host will discuss all the issues of the day, including politics, crime, health, and even entertainment.
The Talk will be broadcast in the UK on TalkTV, the same channel Piers has joined, later this spring.
Sharon’s return to television comes after her tense clash with former co-host Sheryl.
She was accused of racism and the talk show was briefly halted as it investigated the incident.
