Sharon Osbourne wants to stay on 'The X Factor' after storming to victory last year with her act Sam Bailey
Sharon Osbourne wants to stay on 'The X Factor' judging panel.
The 61-year-old star - who won the show last year with her act Sam Bailey - was adamant she would only do one series of the programme, but she's now keen to continue as a panellist alongside Louis Walsh and returning judge Simon Cowell.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Sharon had such a good time on the last series and would find it hard to resist one last hurrah with Simon. She's thinking it would be fun to do it one more time.
"Louis wants her back and Simon thinks she makes brilliant TV and she's coming around to the idea."
However, Simon, 54, is still torn between keeping his old pals Louis and Sharon onboard, and bringing in some new faces to join him and returning judge Cheryl Cole on the panel.
The source explained: "Simon is torn between the glory of the good old days, and the risk of bringing in new people.
"Now he has Cheryl back, he could revamp with two completely shock additions and the option to do that is tempting to him."
It is believed former 'X Factor' USA judge Demi Lovato and Rita Ora are being eyed up for the two remaining spaces on the panel.
Meanwhile, Louis, 61 - who has appeared on all 10 series of the singing competition - recently claimed he wasn't "worried" about getting the boot from the show.
