Sharon Osbourne’s marriage may well be in trouble but that hasn’t stopped the sharp-tongued matriarch from marching ever onwards with her career. She may have left the X Factor UK judging panel back in 2007 but now, Mrs Osbourne is not only set to return to her old role, but she’s going to do it in record-breaking style, with a reported £2 million deal getting inked to secure the reprisal of her slot on the show.

If you’re wondering who’s seat she’s going to be snatching, Huffington Post have reported that it is in fact Nicole Scherzinger who is likely to be giving up her judging slot, whilst Tulisa looks likely to escape her reported axing. Reports suggest that Nicole is opting to focus on her career, leaving Tulisa to make amends for her apparent lack of commitment on last season’s shows, which seemed to lead to her future on X Factor being on shaky ground. Tulisa’s album wasn’t quite the success that quite the success that she will have hoped it to be so X Factor could well be a lifeline for her.

Meanwhile, Sharon Osbourne has been in the press recently for slightly less celebratory reasons, after it was revealed that her marriage to Black Sabbath rocker Ozzy Osbourne is on the rocks. Ozzy’s drink and drugs addictions have reared their ugly head again, though the couple are denying reports that they are getting divorced.
