Sharon Osbourne has reportedly agreed to return to the 'X Factor’ judges' panel for another series later this year.

Sharon Osbourne will reportedly be returning to The X Factor
But the newspaper also reports that Osbourne is yet to get the go ahead from her bosses at US chat show ‘The Talk’, who last autumn allowed her to work a “three day week” schedule so she could also appear on 'X Factor'.
A source said: “Sharon looks like she is returning to the 'X Factor', and has been telling people that it is a done deal. She will film the auditions in the summer, and then jet to and from London for the live shows.
“While that has gone on, her deal at The Talk for the next year is not finalised. She has to re-sign for another year for a another season in the next few weeks. The fact that she is negotiating the X Factor deal before this could complicate matters. They have not said it is okay and have never done so publicly.”
“Some feel that she may have to alter her schedules and that could an impact on her coming back,” the source continued. “One thing is for sure - Sharon is the heartbeat of The Talk and the one who makes headlines, so they will not want to let her go.”
Osbourne had an eventful time on the 2016 ‘X Factor’ judges' panel, often forgetting the names of her own contestants. But speaking on 'The Xtra Factor' at the end of the last series, Simon Cowell said: “I would like everyone to comeback if they will.
"If they want to come back, and everyone may not want to, then everyone can come back.” Along with himself and Osbourne, the panel also included Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger .
