X Factor 2016: Sharon Osbourne slams 'sad f***s' who think she's drunk on the show


X Factor 2016 judge Sharon Osbourne has hit back at viewers who have accused her of being 'drunk' on the show.

The music manager's antics on the live shows this year have proved rather controversial this year, from forgetting her acts' names to their song choices.

Indeed, it still seems as though Sharon thinks Saara Aalto is in fact called Zara.

And on Sunday night, it was revealed that Sharon had to be given a script to remind her how the sing off worked despite having appeared on the show for years.


But she insists she's not been drunk and is just having a "good time".

Sharon said: “It really p***es me off because, the thing is, this isn’t University Challenge. We’re in the music industry.

"You’re meant to have a good time, be entertained, have a laugh.

“Just because I’m not dead serious and on the ball like this it’s like, please, get a life."

She complained to The Sun newspaper: “Because somebody’s having a good time do they have to be drunk because you’re a sad f*** and need to get loaded to have a good time? I don’t.”

Sharon also said she found the accusations of being drunk or even on drugs offensive due to family members who have recovered from addictions.

“It p***es me off because my family have been in and out of the programme and it’s been something I’ve fought for them for their whole lives and it’s like, ‘Nah, p*** off. Get a life!’” Sharon concluded.

The X Factor 2016 continues this Saturday and Sunday night live on ITV with the semi-finals.
