X Factor 2016: Cheryl ‘set to quit’, Sharon Osbourne ‘in secret talks to return’!

Cheryl is reportedly set to quit The X Factor 2016, it’s been said that Sharon Osbourne is in ‘secret talks’ to return.


If Dermot O’Leary wasn’t enough for The X Factor’s ratings to go up, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh are reportedly set to return too.

As it currently stands Nick Grimshaw has quit and hosts Olly Murs and Caroline Flack have been axed in favour of Dermot.

Sharon Osbourne is rumoured to return.

“Sharon’s an X Factor legend but when she went back for a year Simon wasn’t on the panel. Their rows are legendary and that dynamic could work well,” a source told The Sun newspaper.

However Sharon’s potential comeback hinges on Louis also being a judge, something that Simon Cowell and ITV are said to be disagreeing about.

“Simon really wants Louis back,” a source told the Sunday People. “He wants his friend back by his side like the good old days. But he’s coming up against resistance from producers.”

There’s claims Cheryl is set to quit before the up-coming series.

A source told the Daily Mirror: “Cheryl will be the one who makes the decision on her future – she and Simon are great friends and he’s totally supportive of her decision, ­whatever that turns out to be.

“They’ve got the show’s best interests at heart and aren’t rushing into anything. The talks could continue for some time.”

It’s also been claimed that we could see a return for Nicole Sherzinger, who is said to be “keen to return”.

The insider added: “Nicole is seen as an able replacement if Rita drops out”.
