Shaz rules out 'X Factor' return

Sharon Osbourne will never go back on 'The X Factor.'

The music manager, who left the UK reality TV programme in 2008 after Dannii Minogue joined the show and won with her act Leon Jackson - has confirmed she will never make a return to the show.

"You can’t go back," she said. "You have to keep going forward. I really believe that.

"It was a great time in my life and I’m really proud of it because it’s the best show in the entire world but for me, professionally, I have to keep going forward."

Sharon – who also had her own reality TV show ‘The Osbournes’ - is currently working as a judge on ‘America's Got Talent’ alongside Piers Morgan and Howie Mande.

Sharon is adamant that no amount of money would make her change her decision – and she would even turn it down if she was offered £10m (€12m).

She said: "It’s not the principle of it all, it’s just you move on in life."
