'X Factor' 2016: Judge Sharon Osbourne Promises 'Tears' On New Series

'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.

It’s no surprise Sharon is in no mood to humour the new set of hopefuls, particularly given what she said about the show following her departure in 2014.

The new series of ‘The X Factor’ kicks off later this year.
