Sharon Osbourne says she hasn't watched The X Factor for four years!

X Factor 2013 judge Sharon Osbourne has claimed she didn't watch The X Factor when she wasn't on it!

Sharon is back on the show this year after a four year absence, sitting on a new look panel alongside Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger.

Speaking to us on the red carpet at last week's auditions in Wembley, Sharon said only now would she once again be tuning in!

"To be honest, when I left it didn't watch the show anymore because I was so pissed off so I never watched it, but now I shall watch it again!" she laughed.

But while Sharon hasn't been watching the show, she knows a lot about all the huge acts to have come from the series since she's been gone.

"It just seems to be like this big thing that gets bigger and bigger and bigger," Sharon told us. "You have to look since I've gone at all he acts that have made it: JLS, One Direction, it's just another, and another, and these are bands who have made it not just here but everywhere. It's larger than life!"

Meanwhile, Sharon added that she wasn't worried about which of the four categories she'd get this year.

"There is so much talent in every category, no ones going to get a dud category, I'm easy, I go with the flow," she said.

The X Factor 2013 will air next month on ITV.
