Sharon Osbourne

Sharon Osbourne has said she hopes to return to The X Factor UK next year!

The reality telly star had appeared on the show's panel from the first series until 2007, when she quit after Dannii Minogue joined the show.

Having now quit her role on America's Got Talent, Sharon is hoping to return to the UK version of The X Factor next year.

Sharon will appear alongside Louis Walsh on this year's show, helping him pick his acts for the final.

Speaking from Las Vegas, where Louis is filming his judges' houses section, Sharon said: "Simon and I are still in touch. He reached out to me very recently ­regarding Jack and he was so lovely and so supportive.

“When the shit hits the fan, Simon is always there for you."

Sharon confessed: “We bicker like brother and sister but ultimately we have got each other’s backs.

“I would love to work with Simon again, just to piss him off.”

Louis also gave Sharon his backing to rejoin the show.

The Irish music mogul said: “She is just honest. She is a self-made ­person and she just speaks her mind.

“She is just different. She is a bit mad but in a good way and that’s great.”

"She is more experienced than anyone else. There is nothing this woman hasn’t done or said."
