Sharon Osbourne believes she was offered her job back on the 'X Factor' because she offered to perform a sex act on Simon Cowell
Sharon Osbourne offered to perform a sex act on Simon Cowell in return for a job on the 'X Factor'.
The judge - who was previously a panellist on the programme from 2004 to 2007 - believes the music mogul asked her to come back to the show because she's "the best" and she bribed him with sexual favours.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I am the best - it is the truth."
She joked: "I said, 'If I suck your d*** can I get the job?' And he said, 'Of course'. It was very simple."
Sharon - who left the ITV talent show in 2007 after a tiff with fellow judge Dannii Minogue - previously fell out with the 53-year-old star after he slammed her in his autobiography. She then famously hit back at him, suggesting that he has "small penis syndrome", but she'd happily take back the remark for a hefty wage packet of £1.8 million.
She explained: "I only said that because he said he didn't like working with me in his book."
The feisty redhead is reclaiming her seat alongside her partner-in-crime Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Nicole Scherzinger, but is adamant there will be no hasty words exchanged between her and the 'Boomerang' singer because they've been pals for years.
She said: "It is not going to happen because if anyone had done their homework they would know she was my guest at judges' homes. We have been friends for years."
