Sharon has been catching up on her reading list

In a statement released on Friday, the network said that the episode which saw the British TV personality clash with her co-hosts was "upsetting to everyone involved, including the audience watching at home."

It added that Sharon's behaviour towards her co-hosts during the episode "did not align with our values for a respectful workplace".

The decision comes after the channel put the popular daytime talk show on extended hiatus while they conducted an investigation into accusations of racism and inappropriate comments made by the 68-year-old.

The drama kicked off in early March when Sharon was asked to explain why she had defended Piers, who has called Meghan a "liar."

Sharon insisted that his comments, and her defence, did not make either of them racist.

When co-hosts Sheryl Underwood and Elaine Welteroth attempted to explain how they felt unconscious racism was playing a role, and that it was important for "friends to hold a friend accountable," Sharon became teary and began shouting at the pair.
