X Factor 2013 auditions: Sharon Osbourne in tears over returning hopeful

Sharon Osbourne

There were tears from Sharon Osbourne at yesterday's X Factor auditions in London, as a previous hopeful returned for a second try.

The budding performer had originally tried out for the show way back in 2007, when Sharon was last on the panel.

And Sharon was left crying after the young singer revealed a note Sharon had written her at the time, telling her to never give up.

Meanwhile, a powercut at Sharon's £1,000 a night hotel at Claridge's saw her moved to a budget Premier Inn to get ready for auditions at the capital's ExCel Centre yesterday afternoon.

A supposed show source told The Sun newspaper today: “Sharon was delayed getting to auditions as there was a power cut at Claridge’s where she is staying, so she couldn’t get ready.

“There wasn’t even any hot water. She ended up going to a Premier Inn to get ready."

After London, the judges will go on to hold the last audition stop this year in Cardiff. This will be followed by the second stage of judges’ arena auditions in July.

The show will return to our screens on ITV in August.
