Sharon Osbourne to return to The X Factor
Wednesday 25 August 2010
The original X Factor lady judge Sharon Osbourne is returning to the talent show to give her views on this year’s contestants.
But before you think there will be tensions between Mrs O and Dannii Minogue - who famously don’t get on - they won’t be awkwardly sitting there side by side on the judging panel.
Instead, catty Sharon will be giving Louis Walsh a hand as a guest mentor during the Judges Houses stage.
The Sun quotes a pal Louis’s as saying: "Sharon knows she's only back for one episode and is determined to stir things up and make mischief.
"Louis is absolutely delighted she is coming back. He has dearly missed having her around."
Shazza left The X Factor after admitting she couldn’t stand working with Dannii.
Meanwhile, the reality show has had to axe Shirlena Johnson because she hid a mental illness from producers.
The eccentric hopeful sung her own version of Duffy’s Mercy, shouting ‘mercy’ and ‘release me’ relentlessly.
Speaking after this decision, Simon Cowell, who told Shirlena she was “fantastically nuts,” admitted: "I'm devastated. It's heartbreaking.
"Shirlena desperately wanted to do this to make a better life for herself and her daughter.
"I feel she may now struggle to do that."
Gosh - The X Factor knows how to get people talking about it!
