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.

Look, Kim Kardashian is no stranger to criticism.

Over the course of her ten-year career, the reality star turned businesswoman has been the subject of intense condemnation from both the press and public alike.

Admirably, the 36-year-old regularly counters it by simply drawing attention to the countless career triumphs and business successes she has enjoyed since her rise to fame in 2007.

We mean, remember when she took aim at her critics after appearing on the cover of Forbes magazine, writing: "Not bad for a girl with no talent".

Having recently borne the brunt of some particularly derogatory comments made by Sharon Osbourne during an interview with The Telegraph, Kim decided to respond, and highlight the inaccuracy of Sharon's comments.

"Kim says she’s doing everything in the name of feminism, but that’s not feminism!" Sharon argued while being interviewed by the British broadsheet.

"Those girls live off their bodies, half of LA has been through them and everything they do from the sex tape to the plastic see-through dresses and the gym wear is about sex, not female progress."

"And listen: God bless them. If Kim wants to show off her body, fine. But that’s not feminism, that’s being a ho. And there’s nothing wrong with being a ho, but always remember what you are."

Instead of taking umbrage over Sharon's indisputable slut-shaming, Kim felt compelled to clarify her stance on the sharing of nude photographs, and called Sharon out on the spin she put on Kim's supposed approach to them.

"I think she said I said a quote about, ‘I post nude photos in the name of feminism.’ Never said that. So I think when people misquote you and then comment, it just sounds ridiculous,” Kim told E Online.

Disputing the notion that she chooses to post intimate photos of herself as some form of feminist message, the mother-of-two explained that her decision boils down to little more than appreciating the aesthetic.

“I post nude photos because I like how I look and I feel proud when I've lost all this baby weight and I post it because I feel like posting it and I feel powerful.If I post a photo," Kim explained. "I post it because I like how I look."

Can't argue with that, Sharon.



It looks like there's no love lost between Nicki Minaj and Sharon Osbourne if a recent interview with the rapper is anything to go by.

While chatting with Marie Claire recently, the Anaconda singer pulled the X Factor judge up on her apparent hypocrisy when it comes to women within the entertainment industry.

Drawing attention to comments Sharon made regarding Nicki's Anaconda artwork back in 2014, Nicki suggested that the reality star has a warped view of what is and isn't acceptable when it comes to the female body.

Speaking at the time, Sharon compared the cover to pornography, saying: "This looks like a cheap porno cover of a DVD… I love women’s bodies. I love nudity, but this is cheap."

And yet when Kim Kardashian shared a nude selfie online, Sharon was among Kim's supporters – something which Nicki struggles to understand.

"When Kim Kardashian’s naked picture came out Sharon Osbourne praised it and my fans attacked her for being such a hypocrite," Nicki told the magazine.

"So it wasn’t trashy and raunchy when a white woman did it but it was when a black woman did it?" Nicki asked while reflecting on the apparent hypocrisy.

The star, who is known for speaking her mind and drawing attention to inequality within the music industry, says she's learned to accept it on some levels.

"It’s quite pathetic and sad but that is my reality and I’ve gotten accustomed to just shutting it down." she added.

Sharon? Your move.


X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne has revealed that she was hospitalised in LA last year because she was experiencing a secret breakdown.

Speaking on The Talk, the 63-year-old television personality confessed that her family “put [her] into a facility” while she was suffering from a bout of extreme depression.

In a bid to help others in similar situations, the mother of three candidly explained how she had “a complete and utter breakdown” during which she could not physically or mentally function for a period of three days.

She said: “I had a complete and utter breakdown.  I woke up in Cedars-Sinai Hospital and for probably three days I knew nothing.”

“I couldn’t think, I couldn’t talk.  I could do nothing.  My brain just shut down on me.”

The British star – whose relationship with husband Ozzy was dragged into turmoil earlier this year by cheating revelations – explained how her depression had followed a period of prolonged stress, during which she had an extreme amount of commitments to attend to.

“I was doing too much of everything, thinking I'm a superwoman, ‘I'm so strong. I can handle this, I can handle that’.  My brain just totally fused.”

While in hospital Sharon had the opportunity to avail of a range of therapies. 

She claims to have found group therapy most effective because there were several people involved who were undergoing the same experience she was.

Fair play to Sharon for opening up in such an honest way about her personal experience.



After Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne announced their separation earlier this year, the rumour mill went into overdrive as the public wondered what had gone on between the high-profile couple.

Surprisingly enough for a celebrity couple split. they didn't have to wait too long as word quickly got out that the ageing rocker had been cheating on Sharon with celebrity colourist Michelle Pugh.

And while Ozzy and Sharon are said to be working on their marriage, that hasn't stopped Michelle from opening up about her affair with the Birmingham-native.

In an exclusive interview with People magazine, Michelle revealed she had been seeing Ozzy for four years, and considered him the love of her life.

"When I say he gave me the greatest love of my life, I mean it," she insisted. "He made me feel like the most beautiful and worshipped woman in the world."

Despite insisting that the rocker wasn't happy in his marriage, Ozzy has refuted the claims and has dismissed the notion that his relationship with Michelle was anything more than an outlet for his sex addiction.


In a statement released to People, a rep for Ozzy said: "He is sorry if Ms. Pugh took their sexual relationship out of context."

"He would like to apologise to the other women he has been having sexual relationships with," they continued. "Since his relationship with Ms. Pugh was exposed, Ozzy has gone into intense therapy."

Remember when Ozzy's only interest was television remotes and dog poo?


Robbie Williams is one of those celebs that just entertain you no matter what the context. He's funny and charming so it's no wonder why he's heading on the new season of the X Factor.

Rob will stand alongside judge Sharon Osbourne at the Judge’s Houses segment of the series this year, giving her some expert help when picking her finalists.

“Getting Robbie back on the show is a really clever move on the part of Sharon and the producers,” a source told The Sun.

“He has a huge fanbase and will attract loads of extra viewers purely from his name. It’s that sort of star quality they need to compete with Strictly.

“Every time Robbie appears on the X Factor he proves great entertainment value,” the insider added.

The insider is right, I'll sure be tuning in to see Robbie!


Ahh the X Factor – the only talent hunt on TV where the judges are guaranteed to be more dramatic than the contestants.

While you might think reintroducing the winning trio of Nicole Scherzinger, Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne to the judging panel would mean smooth sailing for the series, that doesn't necessarily mean Louis will be holding his tongue when it comes to his fellow judges.

In an interview with The Daily Star, the Mayo man discussed Sharon's recently rumoured cosmetic surgery touch-up and said: "She is looking really well. She has got a new face. It’s her third face and it is the best one yet."

“She has had a bit of work done," he claimed, before saying: "I have great fun with her and she does not mind me saying things like that.”  Sounds like Mrs O must be very understanding!

Being a little kinder towards Nicole Scherzinger, Louis said: “Nicole is the best judge. Getting Sharon back was something different, I think. That was a tough job as her and Simon don’t always see eye to eye.”

It seems Louis is in a confessional mood these days as last month he hit out at former X Factor judge Cheryl when he claimed that Nadine Coyle was the only Girls Aloud member that could actually sing.

We can't wait to hear what he comes out with next.


Sharon Osbourne has added her name to the long list of celebrities weighing in on Taylor Swift’s never-ending feud with Kim Kardashian and her rap star husband Kanye West.

Speaking on US chat show The Talk today, Sharon advised Taylor to forget pursuing legal action and move on from the drama as best she can.

The X Factor judge told her co-hosts: “I think that Taylor should go back to what she does best, writing her songs, recording.”

“Forget – it's got to stop. The whole thing with Taylor Swift and Kanye West and now the Kardashians are coming in, it's ugly.”

According to The Express, the 63-year-old reality star advised Taylor to “rise above” the drama and go do her own thing, before openly describing Kanye West a “bully”.

She said:  "It would be so bad for her [Taylor] if she does take this to the next stage. Just let it go. Everybody knows that he [Kanye] is a bully." 

The infamous battle of the stars was reignited earlier this week when Kim used Snapchat to air a recorded conversation between Taylor and Kanye for the world in what seems to be proof that the Bad Blood singer did approve Kanye’s controversial Famous lyrics.

In the song the Yeezy designer said he and Taylor “might still have sex” and claimed he “made that b*tch famous”.

Given all that’s gone on, we think Sharon’s advice is actually pretty damn sensible.


It looks like the original mom and dad of reality TV Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne could be about the put their differences aside and reunite after May's cheating scandal dragged the future of their 34 year marriage into question.

In a new Us article, an insider revealed that the celebrity pair have “fallen in love again” after a bout of couple's therapy.

The news comes just days after it emerged that Sharon discovered her husband had been cheating on her with a celebrity hairdresser while going through his e-mails.

But last month speculation began that the pair were on the road to reunion when The Sun reported that they were back talking.

And in May, a Us Weekly source revealed Ozzy was willing to do anything to get his family back after the famous couple reportedly had a “mediated discussion” with a marriage counsellor.

They said: “He’ll go to any lengths necessary to repair the damage.”

"He wants his family back.”

Sharon has been busy making her X Factor comeback over the last few weeks and has been keeping fans up to date via her social media accounts.

So, it seems that Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne are getting back together. 

According to The Sun, Shar and Oz had an hour-long showdown where they let everything out in a bid to save their marriage.

Until now, Ozzy has been living away from home to give room to Sharon since it was alleged that he was being unfaithful.

After their discussion, a source told the paper: "They are talking. I am sure it'll take a bit of time."

Then, less than 24 hours later, the couple appeared together at Ozzfest, where they looked particularly happy together.

When asked about Sharon being at the event, Oz told Us Weekly: "She's my right arm. She's everything for me. She's great."

However, Sharon kinda had a different response when asked why she was at Ozzfest: "This is my business, you know? This is what I do.

"People have forgotten, because they see me every day on the chat show, but this is still the other half of my life."

Together? Separated? We're just going to have to see how this one plays out. 



Last weekend was one hell of a whirlwind for Sharon Osbourne as news broke that the much-loved television personality was calling time on her relationship with former Black Sabbath star Ozzy Osbourne.

Appearing yesterday on The Talk, the 63-year-old former X Factor judge made one very slick move and implied that rumours surrounding Ozzy's infidelity had been true by carrying a glass of lemonade with her on-set.

Queen Bey would be proud, Shaz!

Opening up about the end of the couple's 34-year marriage, Sharon told her co-panellists: "I honestly am empowered, and I have this inner strength, and I'm like, 'Right, OK, what's next? I can handle this."

Despite insisting that she's doing well, the mum-of-three understandably became emotional while speculating on her future, admitting: "I honestly at this point today, have no idea what I'm going to be doing for the rest of my life."

"I don't know where I'm going, who I'm going with, and I just need time to think, and really think about myself — about what do I really want for the rest of my life because this is, like, getting to the last chapter of this book. I really want to think about it carefully, about where I want to go."

With admirable poise, the popular TV star thanked Ozzy for the life he gave her, saying: "I love Ozzy dearly. He's given me unbelievable life, he's given me three gorgeous children. I love him."

Aw lads, we're welling up over here.


After 34 years of marriage it is being reported that Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne have decided to go their separate ways.

Ozzy infamously had a drinking problem for years which caused its problems within the marriage. The couple also made it through Sharon's battle with colon cancer back in 2002.

After meeting when she was just 18 years old, Sharon ended up replacing Ozzy's dad as his manager and the pair married in 1982.

A source has told E! News that Ozzy has moved out of the house after a mutual agreement to split.

The pair have been iconic since their early days, so it's easy to see why people are heartbroken by the break-up:
