There could be fireworks on The X Factor 2016 this year if Sharon Osbourne returns.

The sharp tongued music manager has been tipped to make a comeback to the show and she has some strong opinions about who should be sitting alongside her.

Dannii Minogue is definitely NOT on her Christmas card list, with the pair seemingly still feuding after Dannii first 'forced' Sharon to quit The X Factor in 2007.

Asked how she'd feel about Dannii coming back, Sharon replied: "Sick.

"If it was Simon, Louis and Dannii… I’d have to come back with a vengeance… "

And there's bad news for Nick Grimshaw and Rita Ora too, with Sharon saying that they were not "accomplished" enough to be judges.

"They are very young," she told Gay Star News (via
Daily Star), "Nothing against them, but I think it needs more accomplished people."

As yet no names have been confirmed for The X Factor judging line up this year however both Nick and Cheryl have been ruled out.

Sharon is said to be in talks with Louis Walsh to make a comeback with Simon Cowell, although no contracts have yet been signed.

"I haven't signed a contract, to be quite honest with you," Louis said recently, "I did meet Simon, I did meet Sharon Osbourne.

"It looks like I'm back, but I haven't signed.

"I can't say I have the job until I've signed the contract."

As for Rita's potential return, it's said to be either her or Nicole Scherzinger for the fourth spot, which could make things a tad awkward with Sharon.

The X Factor will air on ITV later this year.
