It was only this week that Dannii Minogue told me at the Glamour Awards that she was “prepared to put the bad blood behind her” over the bitching that went on during last season’s X-factor. Well Dannii – you don’t have to worry anymore! Because Sharon Osbourne has quit!
A statement through about half an hour ago reads: “Sharon Osbourne announced today that after four fantastic and successful series of The X Factor she has decided to leave the show.
“Sharon would like to thank the wonderful British public for their enormous support during what’s been an exciting ride. She would also like to take this opportunity to thank Simon Cowell and ITV while wishing them all the best for the next series.
“Sharon will be making no further comment.”
So there you have it…..
And X-factor HQ just told me it’s too early to know if they are going to replace the judge with another big name and whether there will still be four groups in the format. Louis Walsh is apparently staying despite the loss of his bosom buddy!
Whatever the news – I’m loving the gossip! Bitchy and fun! Long may it continue!
PS. Initial meetings and filming was due to start from this Thursday coming!!!!! Talk about being left in the lurch!
