Giuliana Rancic has confirmed that she will return to Fashion Police.

The 40-year-old presenter broke the news in an exclusive interview with Access Hollywood Live.

There had been doubt over whether Rancic (and the show) would return at all, after she was accused of making a racist comment about Zendaya Coleman's hair at the Oscars, which later prompted co-host Kelly Osbourne to quit.

Joan Rivers' replacement Kathy Griffin was next to exit, which caused many to speculate that show might get pulled, but now Rancic confirms she'll be back in September with Brad Goreski.

"I think more than ever, [Fashion Police] is definitely coming back, because [the controversy] shows that a lot of people were watching the show and enjoyed the show," she said. "So yeah, it's coming back in September, in time for the Emmys."

Rancic had said that Coleman's hair looked as though it "smelt of patchouli oil or weed" on the Oscars special episode and Kelly later threatened to quit the show after a wave of controversy ensued.

She added: "I will be on the show, Brad Goreski will be on the show, and now they just have to fill the other seats."

Rancic was then asked by co-hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover if she felt that Kelly Osbourne had turned on her, and interestingly she revealed that Kelly had been friendly with her even after the show was first aired.

"[Kelly] and I spoke when it all first happened. She was so sweet you know.. and we were talking. She called me as a friend," she revealed.

But despite Osbourne being friendly to Rancic in private, publicly she told People magazine last week that it had been "really heartbreaking to see her behavior that has transpired when she did get caught being wrong."

Osbourne also cryptically tweeted: "Liars ALWAYS get caught".

Co-host Kit Hoover then asked Rancic: "So wait, so Kelly called.. said I'm here for you, we gotta get through this will be great. And then what happened? She's sending kind of cryptic tweets and.."

Rancic replied appearing bemused: "Yeah and then I think it just kind of... I don't know."

Rancic - who has one child with husband Bill Rancic - also went into detail about the death threats she received from the incident.

She explained: "I was getting all sorts of threats against me and my family. You know, writing Duke's name in these tweets saying they were gonna kill my family and he better watch out."

Adding: "And, sending me pictures of the barrel of a gun. A lot of gun pictures and gang pictures. I'm like what is going on?".
