Sharon Osbourne Returning To X Factor?
Former judge sparks comeback rumours after meeting with Simon Cowell...
The three original judges met at the Arts Club in Mayfair last night which posed the question - will Sharon return as a judge next season?
With Tulisa Contostavlos rumoured to be leaving the show, this would be a good opportunity for Cowell to bring back the outspoken judge.
A source told The Sun: "The first three series relied solely on genuine British talent and a chemistry between the judges that simply hasn't been there since Sharon left."
"By series three, they had produced an international star with Leona Lewis and the show had real credibility.
"Now it's just a circus freak show with the ringmaster trying to pull the strings on the other side of the Atlantic."
After disappointing ratings, Simon recently held crisis talks to discuss how they would get the show back on track and boost ratings.
SiCo has ruled out a return the UK show because of the demands placed on him by its US counterpart.
