Sharon Osbourne seemingly dropped the F-bomb live on The X Factor tonight.
This evening saw the second half of the Quarter Finals of The X Factor 2017 with the new format.
The contestants this year are performing in separate nights in their categories and this evening Nicole Scherzinger’s Overs and Sharon’s Girls were in the spotlight.
And it was two of Sharon’s acts – Rai-Elle Williams and Holly Tandy who were next to be voted off the show – in a second double eviction.
Sharon couldn’t hide her shock at the result, apparently shouting out ‘F**k!’ before quickly covering her mouth.

“They have both done so great,” Sharon later told host Dermot O’Leary. “It has only been six weeks, not 10 like usual, so they are already ahead of the game.
“They are not going away.”
Holly and Rai-Elle follow in the footsteps of duo Sea and Conor and Sam Black who were eliminated on Sunday night following the Boys and Groups’ performances.
Meanwhile, it was revealed that Grace Davies topped the latest public vote. She went forward to a new sing-off format against Rak-su from the Groups category, who topped Saturday’s vote.
The pair both performed again in a new twist, competing for a special prize, which this week was studio time in LA with a top music producer.
Six contestants now remain in the competition’s final stages ahead of next weekend’s semi-finals.
They are Simon Cowell’s Groups Rak-Su and The CutKelvins, Sharon Osbourne’s Girls Grace Davies.
Plus Louis Walsh’s Boys Lloyd Macey and Nicole Scherzinger’s Overs Kevin Davy White and Matt Linnen.
The X Factor 2017 continues next Saturday and Sunday night on ITV.
It’ll be the semi-finals and for the first time this year, the acts will sing together on the same night.
Former X Factor winner James Arthur and Ed Sheeran will be performing.
