Jack Osbourne is backing Sharon Osbourne to make the switch from 'The X Factor' to 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 28-year-old star - who finished third on America's 'Dancing with the Stars' last year - confirmed his mother has come close to signing up to the BBC One ballroom show in the past and believes she would have no qualms about telling 'X Factor' boss Simon Cowell if she wanted to appear on the rival BBC One show.
He said: "She's got close to doing 'Strictly' before but has been too busy.
"She's not afraid of Simon, I don't think she'd be bothered if she annoyed him by taking part in 'Strictly'. And she'd be great."
Should Sharon take part in the show then Jack - whose sister Kelly Osbourne also finished third on 'Dancing with the Stars' in 2009 - thinks she would have a genuine chance of winning the Glitterball Trophy based on her previous dancing experience.
He is quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "Mum's a great dancer. She trained at the same place a lot of professional dancers on the shows studied."
