Osbourne to return for 'X Factor 2'
Sharon Osbourne has signed a £1 million deal to appear on the second series of The X Factor, according to The Sun today.

Osbourne's future on the show was uncertain, after she accused Steve Brookstein, the winner of the first series, of being "fake" and "full of crap" during the live final.

Sharon also spent most of her time on the show arguing with creator and judge, Simon Cowell. She claimed that Simon had rigged the contest for one of his own acts to win.

However, the long-running feud now appears to be over, and Sharon has signed to re-join the judging team, alongside Cowell and Louis Walsh.

An insider told the newspaper, "Things were very frosty between Sharon and Simon after her rant. He was so angry because he felt she was damaging the show as millions had voted for Steve. But Sharon then made a big apology saying she was wrong.

"Simon knows that Sharon was a hit with the viewers, so has pulled out the stops to sign her again on a big money deal."

Auditions for the second series of the show begin in May.
