Simon Cowell & Sharon Osbourne returning for X Factor 2013?
British bookies have this week slashed the price of Sharon Osbourne making a return to the X Factor from 8/1 to 5/4, as X Factor fans pile on the cash.
Even though he denied reports that he will be making a comeback this week, it seems William Hill don’t place much stock in Si Co’s word, as Simon Cowell is Evens to return, with long serving judge Louis Walsh 2/7 to take his seat once again for the tenth year running!
“The X Factor viewing figures have been going in the wrong direction ever since Simon & Sharon left. Their return could be just the tonic the franchise needs,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
It is thought that Nicole Scherzinger will be back, after winning with James Arthur last year and also claiming the runner’s up spot with Jahmene Douglas.
Gary Barlow has reportedly already told bosses that he’s leaving the panel, but bookies are offering 8/11 that he’ll show up for his third year of judging, while they seem more doubtful that Tulisa will return and odds on her comeback have risen to 11/10.
