Osbourne: "Winehouse is too nice for 'The X Factor'"
Kelly Osbourne has insisted that Amy Winehouse is "too nice" to sit alongside her mother Sharon on The X Factor's judging panel.

The rock heiress admitted that she was "gutted" when it was announced in March that Louis Walsh would not be returning to the TV singing contest.

Her mother Sharon will rejoin the judging panel alongside Simon Cowell when the new series of The X Factor returns to ITV1 in August. They will be joined by two new celebrity panellists, whose identities have not been revealed.

When asked whether Winehouse would make a good judge, she told Digital Spy: "That would be brilliant, but Amy's too nice...she's got a really soft side when she sees someone perform and that's truly what they want to do. I don't think Amy could ever sit there and be mean."
