Which Former X Factor Judge Admits It Was 'Dumb' To Quit The Show

Sharon Osbourne has admitted that she was "dumb" to quit The X Factor because it was a "huge show."

The star was one of the original judges who sat alongside Louis Walsh, Simon Cowell and Dannii Minogue when the show kicked off in 2004, leaving three years later in 2007.

Despite being happy with her decision to leave the show because she "wasn't happy", the star admitted to The Times:

"It was a dumb move, but emotionally right.  It was a huge show; it paid so well, so much came from it.  But I wasn't happy, so I walked away with dignity."

Revealing that she could have got her job back on the panel if Simon Cowell would of allowed it, Sharon added:

"Simon wouldn't let them and I don't give a s**t 'cos I can go, 'F**k you'. He's not a friend, but I don't not get on with him. We lead very separate lives: I'm family orientated, he's a mover and shaker.

"Simon always ends up firing everyone. I didn't want to give him that satisfaction. He always wants someone young and perky-t*tted sat next to him."

So she won't be returning then...
