Sharon Osbourne has insisted she wasn't drunk on The X Factor at the weekend.

Following Saturday night's live show there was plenty of speculation over Sharon's behaviour.

Whether it was grabbing Nicole Scherzinger's boobs or forgetting where Saara from Finland is from, Sharon had social media in a spin.

But speaking on her US show The Talk this week, Sharon insisted she was simply high on life.

"Why is it when you're there and you're having fun and you're being silly that you have to be drunk? Why?" she said.

"It's an entertainment show and it goes out late on a Saturday night."

Sharon raved: "The best is Nicole Sherzinger. She's funny, she's naughty..."

Appearing alongside Sharon, American actress Sara Gilbert quipped:: "Here's the thing. I've been with Sharon drunk and she wouldn't be covering a girl's boobs - she would be exposing them!"

Sharon explained her boob grabbing, saying: "There were very, very young boys and Nicole had this amazing outfit on that barely covered anything.

"And this one young boy was looking at her and I'm down there going 'look in the eyes, look in the eyes'. That's what I was doing!"

The X Factor continues live this Saturday night at 8PM on ITV.
