Nick Cannon will temporarily sub for an ailing Wendy Williams on her talk show. 

“The Wendy Williams Show” announced Tuesday on their official Instagram account that Cannon will guest-host for part of next week.  The post read: “Friend to the show and host of Fox’s The Masked Singer and MTV’s Wild n’ Out, @nickcannon will be guest hosting The Wendy Williams Show on Monday, February 4th, Tuesday, February 5th & Wednesday, February 6th. The new hour long episodes will include Wendy’s staple Hot Topics segment, ‘Ask Wendy,’ celebrity interviews and more!”

Williams shared last year that she was struggles with Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition that affects the thyroid. She took a break from her show last February as a result. Williams continues to deal with medical challenges related to her condition and is also recovering from a fractured shoulder, according to her show team. 

Viewers became concerned about Williams’ health in 2017 after she fainted during her show.
