Piers Morgan has defended Harry Potter author JK Rowling, insisting "she'll survive" the attempts to cancel her following her remarks surrounding transgender issues and the definition of women.The former Life Stories host, 57, was speaking during the press launch of his new TalkTV show, Uncensored, when he insisted that like himself and his TalkTV colleague Sharon Osbourne, the Harry Potter author will survive being a victim of cancel culture.When asked to address the difference between holding someone to account and calling for them to be cancelled, the outspoken TV star was quick to clarify the two.Piers said: "You can hold people to vigorous account, you can be severely critical of people, I'm like that all the time."I write very critical columns of people."I don't call for them to be cancelled."I don't call for their lives to be ruined and then to be basically disintegrated in front of our very eyes," he added.Piers explained: "That is cancelled culture and it's getting worse and worse and worse, and people like Sharon and I will survive."JK Rowling, she'll survive the most appalling abuse and attempts to cancel her for having an opinion that she stands up for women's rights."It's appalling what happened to her, but we know where this line is," he said to Huffington Post and other publications.Earlier this this year, Piers put aside his feud with the author to defend the "cancelled" star amid the transgender row.Piers branded the treatment of the author "an absolute disgrace" amid the backlash she is facing for airing her views on the on sex and gender.He looked to the issue of the US transgender swimmer, Lia Thomas, who is set to become a world champion after having joined the women's team, as an example.The swimmer

'Virtue-signalling insanity' Piers Morgan on ruling over transgender cyclist Emily Bridges
Piers Morgan, who has been campaigning against transgender people competing in women's sport for years, took to Twitter in celebration."Finally, a ray of common sense shines up from the virtue-signalling insanity," he wrote jubilantly in view of almost eight million followers.If she had taken part, 21-year-old Emily would have been up against some formidable competition, including five-times Olympic champion Laura Kenny.However it is believed that those who were assigned male at birth face physical advantages against those who were born female, including levels of the hormone testosterone.Although the hormone is present in both males and females, it is men who have significantly higher amounts of it - and the substance, which promotes the building of muscle, is one of the factors in men having an athletic advantage.The Union Cycliste Internationale requires their contestants to have had testosterone levels that are below five nanomoles per litre for at least a year prior to competing.However the association has confirmed that Emily does not meet the criteria and British Cycling subsequently issued a statement to say so.It read: "We have now been informed by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) that under their current guidelines Emily is not eligible to participate in this event."Piers had earlier hit out over the victory of transgender swimmer Lia Thomas in the 500-yard freestyle swimming contest in the USA's NCAA Championships, deeming it "unfair".World Athletics President Lord Sebastian Coe has taken the same stance as Piers, arguing in his professional capacity that decisions to allow transgender athletes and sportspeople to compete is placing the "integrity" of women's sport under threat.He has insisted that
