X Factor 2013: Sharon Osbourne insists she's still relevant!

Sharon Osbourne (The X Factor 2013)

Returning X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne has insisted she;s still relevant to the music industry.

The famous music manager is back on the panel this year for the show's tenth series in a new look line up.

Returning after four years, Sharon is on the programme this year alongside old pal Louis Walsh as well as Nicole Scherzinger and Gary Barlow.

Speaking at this month's auditions for the new series in Wembley, Sharon said: "I take it one day at a time. It's hard to be competitive on this panel because we all just get on really well. We all just want the show to be great."

Hitting back at her critics, Sharon continued: "I'm obviously still relevant. I work with Black Sabbath and they've just had a No1. album in 14 countries worldwide, so I know what I'm doing."

And Sharon admitted that despite claims she had taken over as head judge, the title should remain with Take That's Gary!

She added: "Gary should be the head judge as he's got a wealth of experience on both sides of the industry.

"He knows what he's doing and he's the best."
