Comedienne ROSIE O'DONNELL is reportedly set to return to the panel of U.S. talk show The View, seven years after she quit.

The outspoken actress signed up to co-host the daytime programme in 2006, but walked away from the project in May, 2007 after just one season on air, citing her constant clashes of opinion with then-co-host and Republican Party supporter Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

However, O'Donnell has since agreed to join current presenter Whoopi Goldberg on The View, filling one of the vacant seats left by departing personalities Sherri Shepherd and Jenny MCCarthy, according to

Show creator and executive producer Barbara Walters also stepped down as their fellow co-host earlier this year (14).

Producers are still on the hunt for two additional personalities to complete the new-look panel.
