X Factor's Sharon Osbourne 'Desperate' To Return, But Her US TV Bosses May Not Be Happy

Mrs O is coming back (hopefully)!

Sharon Osbourne is reportedly “desperate” to return to ‘The X Factor’ next year, but could face a backlash from TV bosses in the US if she signs up for another series.

The judge is also a presenter on American chat show ‘The Talk’, and throughout this year’s ‘X Factor’ run, she has jetted back and forth across the Atlantic to fulfill her commitment to both series.

However, although she’s keen to sign up for another year on the ‘X Factor’ panel, it has been claimed her decision may not go down well with ‘The Talk’ producers.


Sharon previously admitted she was in a “difficult position” about returning to ‘The X Factor’, telling OK! Online: “I’m signed to CBS and I’ve been with them for seven years with amazing women on The Talk and it’s up to Simon to see if they’ll let me do it.


Sharon’s fellow judge Louis Walsh recently revealed he’d already been signed up for another series, while Dermot O’Leary signed a three-year contract when he returned earlier this year.

Nicole Scherzinger also told Heat magazine there had been “talks” about her return, adding: “I had so much fun this year that it really didn’t feel like work.

“It just felt fun and we have such a good energy and chemistry on the panel and that makes a big difference. I am definitely open to the thought of coming back.”
