She says the singer doesn't like the Irishman

Sharon Osbourne claims Dannii Minogue wants fellow judge Louis Walsh to get the elbow from The X Factor.

The Australian singer was reduced to tears when she and the Irish pop mogul, 56, had a spat last week.

But Sharon, 56, says Dannii, 37, knows exactly what she’s doing.

‘Dannii’s got great timing and knows when to pull out the sympathy card,’ she tells The Sun. ‘Her tears were only on live TV.

‘She obviously still sees Louis as being my friend and wants to get rid of him too.’

Sharon quit as a judge on The X Factor over rumoured pay demands.
