Sharon Osbourne has described the 'X Factor' judges as 'bulls**t,' explaining that she thinks the series should have ended last year when she was a panellist, before ratings began to decrease
Sharon Osbourne thinks 'The X Factor' judging panel is s**t this year.
The 62-year-old television personality returned to the show as a judge in 2013 following a four year stint from 2004 to 2007, but has slammed the current panel, featuring Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Mel B, insisting the former Spice Girls star is the only interesting mentor.
The feisty mother-of-three hit out at the ITV show, saying: "Mel B is the only one with a real opinion. Everything else is bulls**t."
Taking her torrent of abuse against the show to another level, she explained that she thinks the talent show should be axed due to tumbling ratings, with BBC One's 'Strictly Come Dancing' repeatedly pulling in more viewers.
Speaking to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she continued: "I think it's time they all went home.
"I think it would have been lovely to end it on top last year when the numbers were great. Now, they're going down and it's like a shame to keep something going when it's going downhill.
"You should always stop when you're on top."
Meanwhile, Sharon - who is married to Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy Osbourne - revealed she would be returning to TV screens with her family in 2015 for eight new episodes of their reality show 'The Osbournes', which tracks their hectic day-to-day life.
