Sharon Osbourne will be returning as a judge on the X Factor UK after a six-year break.
"It's the tenth year of X Factor UK and I started out the show the with Simon. Simon is the creator, the producer, he's the God of it all. But I started it out with him and was there for the first four years that built the show. Then the show became a huge worldwide brand and it's the 10th anniversary and Simon asked me to go back," she explained. "It's kind of like what you have here with the high school when you all get back together … So I go back, I see it's still the same fabulous crew after 10 years and it's just like I'm revisiting 10 years ago for a season."
Sharon will be joining Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger on the panel for the 10th anniversary of the show. Auditions are set to begin next month.
Though The Talk fans can rest easy -- Osbourne's not going anywhere.
"I can do both," she said of her two jobs. "I'm a gypsy, I always have been.
Osbourne also gave an update on her husband Ozzy, who admitted to a relapse with alcohol and drugs in April.
"I just want to say something though. I today feel like the luckiest woman in the world. My husband is sober and I have the best jobs in the entire world and I kind of think my life is too good right now," she said. "But I'm not saying anything and just thank CBS and thank the ladies for being in my life, thank you."
