Sharon Osbourne has confirmed that she won’t be returning to The X Factor for another series.
The 61 year old confirmed that she was only on last year’s series as a final ‘hurrah’. She was successful in getting a win with Sam Bailey.
In a report in The Sun Newspaper, an insider commented; “Last year was seen as Sharon’s last hurrah. She isn’t in consideration for this year’s show.”
Sharon has committed to another series of her American chat show ‘The Talk’, which tapes four days a week.
Currently, only Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole have been confirmed for the next series of The X Factor. However Louis Walsh is close to signing a deal to return for another year.
Sharon is pleased about Cole’s return, saying: “Cheryl is fantastic — she’ll be great for the show. She is always great back with Simon. She will do a great job.”
Auditions for The X Factor’s eleventh series will begin next month.
