Sharon Osbourne signs deal to return to X Factor as Tulisa faces the chop

SHARON Osbourne has reportedly signed a deal confirming her return to the X Factor panel, spelling the end of Tulisa’s time on the show.

The value of her contract is rumoured to be close to €2m, with a clause meaning ITV must pay for first class flights on top notch hotels during her time on the show, according to The Sun.

Sharon suddenly departed the show five years ago after a series of behind-the-scenes rows with Danni Minogue.

The star most recently appeared on the series last year as Louis Walsh’s guest judge.

The Mayo man has maintained a close friendship with Osbourne since their time on the show together, and has said in the past he would love her to return to the show.
