'I don't want to hurt anyone, but...'

Sharon Osbourne has admitted she won’t be going easy on this year’s ‘X Factor’ contestants.

Auditions for the upcoming 13th series of the ITV show are now underway, with Sharon now back on the judging panel, alongside fellow returning judges Louis Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell.

She’s now spoken about her return to the show, and assured ‘X Factor’ devotees that she’ll be every bit as candid and blunt as we’ve come to expect.
