The X-Factor isn't on many of our 'To Watch' lists anymore, despite the fact that it used to be one of the most influential shows on ITV.

An old clip from the show has resurfaced and is causing a LOT of drama , mainly because of Simon Cowell's fat-shaming contestants.

The video went viral after one Twitter user found a clip from the show's early days which highlights the RELENTLESSLY harsh comments given by the judges.

In the clip, a newlywed named Samantha auditions for a place on the star search show, and faces absolute abuse from the judges at the time; Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne.

Sharon says; "I think you have a lovely face and a lovely voice," after Louis refers to the singer as "mission impossible."

Though Samantha is eventually voted through to the next round of The X-Factor, Sharon tells her to "go on a diet" after Simon wonders what she's "willing to do." WHAT?

Another Twitter user reminded the internet of how ruthless the music industry was during those years, claiming "Adele wouldn't have stood a chance of making it even with her amazing voice."

(That's just plain nonsense, Adele could change the WORLD with one single note.)

Other social media users reacted with outrage at the clip, claiming to be "shaken" by the harsh comments, which Simon earned fame for.

We think Samantha is gorgeous inside and out, we hope she's happy and confident wherever she is.

In May of this year, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne announced that they were splitting up after 33 years of marriage. 

Rumours circulated that that the Black Sabbath frontman had an affair, ultimately causing the high profile split. 

However, it would seem as though the famous couple are giving their marriage another chance. 

While on Good Morning America this week, Ozzy shared the news that himself and Sharon were back together, telling viewers that "we are married, all is good." 

When asked about the affair that caused the split, Ozzy explained that "you just, you make mistakes, and you learn by your mistakes, I think," before referring to his cheating as "a bump in the road."

The 67-year-old bat-eating rocker added, "Some days it’s good, some days it’s terrible, some days you just drift apart for a while. But you get back on the horse, you know."

Let's hope this all works out! 



Kim Kardashian sure knows how to get people talking. You might have thought the internet had reached its saturation point for naked photos of Kim after last year's Paper magazine shoot, but apparently not.

The famous mum caused a fair few celeb spats on Twitter this week after casually posting a year-old naked selfie of herself, with nothing but two black stripes covering her modesty (and bypassing Instagram and Twitter's no-nipple rule).

Chloe Moretz and Bette Middler were just two of the stars who hit back at Kim for showing too much skin online – but there were countless others; among them Abigail Breslin, Emily Ratajkowski and Ariel Winter; who spoke out in the KUWTK star's defence. 

As with any celebrity post worth its salt, Kim's selfie has quickly borne a heap of responses/pisstakes online. Here are a few of our favourites, from celebrities and regular joes alike (watch out for the Irish flag):
