Sharon Osbourne 'Wants X Factor Return'
Mrs O and Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie are latest stars linked to talent show...
Despite vowing that last year's series would be her last, The Sun claims that Mrs O has indicated to Simon Cowell that she would like to join him and Cheryl Cole on this year's show.
A source told the paper: “Sharon had such a good time on the last series and would find it hard to resist one last hurrah with Simon. She’s thinking it would be fun to do it one more time.
“Louis wants her back and Simon thinks she makes brilliant TV and she’s coming around to the idea.”
The latest twist in The X Factor saga comes just days after it was claimed that Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie could be set to sign up as a judge.
A source told the Daily Mirror: “It’s not a done deal just yet but things have been positive. Both sides are keen to move things forward and people at the show and ITV are excited at the prospect of having Fergie.
“She brings a lot to the show and her success globally with The Black Eyed Peas and her solo albums obviously speaks for itself. On top of that, she looks fantastic and fans love the glamour of the live shows.”
Last week it was confirmed that Cheryl Cole would be returning to the ITV talent show after months of speculation.
It's understood that she will have final say, along with Simon Cowell, on who will join her on the panel. It's widely expected that Louis Walsh will once again return, however, Olly Murs has also been linked to the new series.
