FANS demand that Sherri Shepard permanently replace Wendy Williams as the ailing host delays her return yet again.
The Wendy Williams Show star may never return due to ongoing health complications connected to her Graves disease.
Sherri, 54, has touched the hearts of fans who believe she is the perfect replacement for Wendy, 57.
The actress has received rave reviews from the public in the talk show host's absence, and many say she should serve as the permanent replacement.
On The Wendy Show's official Instagram, fans have flooded the comments with their wishes for the future of the program.
"Sherri is the best of them all I really can't stand the tag team broads ughh #teamsherrie #teamwendy," one ranted, alluding to others that have taken the stage in her absence.
"No one else needs to host this show BUT SHERRI Shepherd hands down," a second agreed.
A third remarked: "Sherri Shepherd is the greatest show host ever. hilarious! so much energy. great job."

"Sherri is doing a great job as a host 😍. And I’m loving the outfit," another complimented.

BACK IN NYC
Sherri has taken over as one of the many guest hosts who have hit the stage after Wendy's near-fatal health problems this Fall.
The mother of one, who has been absent from her talk show for months, was spotted last week looking stoic during her time with her son.
Wendy clung to Kevin Jr, 21, while out and about in New York City as she continues to battle health issues.
Earlier this year, the TV personality tested positive for Covid-19 and was then rushed to the hospital for "psychiatric services."
In November, Wendy spoke out for the first time about her struggles, and while she assured fans she's getting better, they won't be seeing her make a return to her show anytime soon.
"As everyone knows, my health has been a hot topic. I’m making progress but it’s just one of those things that’s taking longer than we expected," she told her fans.
The host continued: "I’m a woman of a certain age, and I know enough to listen to my doctors and will return to my purple chair as soon as we all agree I’m ready.
"I want to thank all of my staff and our guest hosts for stepping up and stepping in while I can’t be there.
"I also want to thank Debmar-Mercury and our stations for being so understanding and supportive while I work my way back.
"Most of all, I want to thank my fans. I have heard your prayers and comments and feel all the love! You are everything to me.
"I love spending my mornings with you all and I’m doing everything I can to get back to work, but right now Wendy has to focus on Wendy. I love you for watching."
WILL WENDY RETURN?
However, according to a source close to the show, Wendy is "never" returning, and a new host will be announced at some point in January of the new year.
Notable names like Leah Remini, Sherri Shepherd, Whitney Cummings, Jerry Springer, Michael Rapaport, and Bill Bellamy have taken the stage as guest hosts.
But Leah and Sherri have stood out, and some fans have been begging for the latter to take over the hosting role permanently.
Wendy is reportedly “jealous” as ratings rise with Sherri as the guest host, a source exclusively revealed to The Sun.
