Despite quitting The X Factor more than two years ago, Sharon Osbourne will return to the show to help Louis Walsh choose the acts for his group at the judges’ houses stage.
The return of 57-year-old wife of Ozzy Osbourne may be difficult for current judge Dannii as the pair famously clashed back in 2007.
However, with the judges escaping to different houses around the world, it’s unlikely that they'll be filming together.
After three years as the only female judge on the show, Sharon quit in June 2008. She was then replaced by Cheryl Cole.
We're looking forward to seeing what the fiesty Mrs Osbourne will have to say about this year's batch of hopefuls! Saturday nights just got even more exciting.
