Sharon Osbourne had mischief in her eyes as she rejoined 'The X Factor' panel, as auditions for the tenth series kicked off on Tuesday.

Mrs O was reunited with her partner in crime Louis Walsh, as they joined fellow judges Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger in Glasgow as they began their next search for a new singing star.

They all posed for a picture together ahead of the first set of auditions, with host Dermot O'Leary, who posted it on Twitter.

"And so it begins..." he wrote alongside the snap.

Sharon was causing a stir before she'd even taken to her judges chair, as her arrival in the building was typically understated.

The official 'X Factor' Twitter account teased her entrance, writing: "And let's just say Sharon's entrance to The X Factor HQ (complete with muscle-bound, kilt-clad hunks!) will take some beating!"

And let's just say Sharon's entrance to The X Factor HQ (complete with muscle-bound, kilt-clad hunks!) will take some beating!

Not only has Sharon replaced Tulisa on the panel, but there will be some other big changes to the new series of the show, as the old 'judges room' auditions are also making a return.

Hopefuls will faces the judges in an intimate room - as in the first five series of the show - before going on to a second audition held in an arena.

The new series will hit screens in the autumn.

    1. When Sharon loses it, she REALLY loses it (we challenge you to watch this without laughing. A lot.)

  • X Factor: 7 Reasons Why We're Glad Sharon Osbourne's Back

    2. She never lets anything get in between her and a good giggle. Not even a door.

  • X Factor: 7 Reasons Why We're Glad Sharon Osbourne's Back

    3. She's a drama queen. You know, like when she quit 'The X Factor' live on air because two of her acts were in the bottom two. DRAMA!

  • X Factor: 7 Reasons Why We're Glad Sharon Osbourne's Back

    4. She tells it like it is. Just ask the very first 'X Factor' winner Steve Brookstein, who Sharon described as 'full of crap' and 'an average singer'. And that was when she was being nice!

    5. She likes a tipple. Or ten. And doesn't mind appearing a little *hick* sloshed on *hick* 'The Xtra Factor'

    6. She's got one of those faces that simply CANNOT hide what she really thinks. Well, why use words when your eyes can say everything (see 1m 14s)?

    7. She's not afraid of a very public celeb spat. Poor Dannii.
