  • Is Sharon Osbourne set to quit The X Factor next year?

    Sharon Osbourne is to make this series of The X Factor her last, it has been claimed.

    Fiery Sharon is said to have been feeling increasingly out of the loop, and is keen to move on to other projects.

    And it’s rumoured that Ozzy’s wife was unhappy with the addition of Dannii Minogue to the judging panel.

    ‘Sharon has been shuttling between LA and the UK while filming X Factor and America’s Got Talent, so didn’t feel quite ‘in’ with everyone during recording.

    ‘And she’s fed up with Cowell trying to pit her against Dannii. She feels it’s time to move on.’

    However, Sharon hasn’t fallen out with Mr Nasty – far from it. She will continue working with him in the US after signing a three-year deal to star on his new show, America’s Got Talent.

    One insider told the Sun: ‘Sharon hasn’t told any of the top brass about her intentions yet. She wanted to keep this quiet as she makes her final decision. But she’s now set to announce it in the second part of her autobiography. She hasn’t fallen out with anyone, but thinks it’s time to go.’

    A spokesman for the X Factor said: ‘We are unaware of any wishes by Sharon to leave the series at the end of the year.’
