History has been made on American daytime TV, as Jerry O’Connell is named the first ever permanent male co-host on The Talk.
The actor replaces shamed star Sharon Osbourne, who left the hit show earlier this year after getting caught up in a racism scandal.
Speaking on Wednesday’s episode of The Talk, the Jerry Maguire actor promised viewers “a lot of fun” as it was revealed he would be becoming a full-time resident on the panel.
“It’s fun, and it works, and we’re going to have a lot of fun,” the 47-year-old said on air.
Jerry joins Amanda Kloots, Elaine Welteroth, Sheryl Underwood and Carrie Ann Inaba as hosts of the daytime talk show which takes a look at the latest headlines and discusses current affairs.
