Piers said: “I’m delighted to now be returning to live television with a new daily show whose main purpose is to cancel the Cancel Culture which has infected societies around the world.
"I want it to be a platform for lively vigorous debate, news-making interviews, and that increasingly taboo three-letter word: fun. I also want it to annoy all the right people.”
Meanwhile Sharon will be presenting a new hour-long panel debate show, it will bring together five opinionated famous faces – all from different backgrounds and with differing views – to debate the most interesting stories of the day.

After months of speculation about Piers' next move, last September the star announced he was joining The Sun and its parent company News Corp in an unprecedented global deal.
Piers recently treated fans to a first look inside his state-of-the-art new TalkTV studio ahead of his telly return.
He is chomping at the bit to get back on air where he'll express strong opinions and hold robust debates.
On March 9, 2021 Piers dramatically stormed off the set after he was slated by co-star Alex Beresford for his comments towards Meghan Markle, leading him to quit the show.
At the time ITV released a statement to confirm that he had left the breakfast show.
The statement read: "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.
"ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."
The TV host got into a heated arguement about the Duchess of Sussex's claims to have had issues with her mental health.
Piers claimed he was "sickened" by Meghan for "trashing" the Royal Family as "white supremacists" during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Since quitting Good Morning Britain, the show has failed to reach the ratings high he delivered, with the series beating BBC Breakfast for the first time on his final broadcast.
GMB has also struggled to find a high profile replacement for him, instead using a rotating roster of male hosts to sit alongside his former co-star Susanna Reid.
They include hosts Richard Madeley, Adil Ray, Martin Lewis, and Ed Balls.

A source told The Mail on Sunday: "Replacing Piers was always going to be tough, but no one thought that almost a year on they still wouldn’t have found anyone."
On the contrary, Piers' career has gone from strength to strength since ditching his early morning alarm call.
