She left The X Factor six years ago to pursue other aspirations, and now Sharon Osbourne has been lured back to the judges table with a lucrative deal.
According to a report, the media personality will replace Tulisa Contostavlos and shes getting paid £1.5million ($2.3 million at current exchange) to do so.
An insider explained, Sharon and TV bosses feel there is very much unfinished business following her first stint on the show and are delighted that she has agreed to return.
It was never about the money for Sharon. She genuinely loves the program and considers her previous time on the panel as being a very fulfilling time in her life. Despite her ups and downs with Simon Cowell over the years, she has always remained a part of the family and the pair of them currently enjoy a really close friendship.
