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.

    That show doesn’t deserve someone of Gary’s caliber. He shouldn’t compromise his image anymore and he should return to doing what he does best – music. He was the only reason I watched that show for, but I think Simon, Nicole, Tulisa and Louis need it much more, as they don’t have anything else (well, Nicole can sing, but, considering WHAT she sings, she’d better stick with the X Factor). Although it bewilders me why some people look up to Simon, I think he goes better with the show than Gary. Many viewers have proved that they’re not impressed by someone who is professional, intelligent, witty, honest etc., therefore they should be thrilled with Simon and the rest of the lot.

    Bring Sharon back! The show was great with her on. She needs to win at least one series! I have missed her and Simon. I hate Nicole on that show. They don’t really even need four judges either. The original three would be the best!
