Former judge speaks out for first time since quitting hit show

Sharon Osbourne has revealed that her time on The X Factor left her emotionally drained.

The former judge has spoken out for the first time since she quit the ITV show – and admits the arguments weren’t just for show.

‘It definitely is not put on, it’s a very emotional show to work on,’ she says. ‘It’s draining, it takes so much out of you emotionally.’

Sharon, 55, quit the show in June. She’s been replaced by Girls Aloud star Cheryl Cole, 25.
