Osbourne joined by Robbie as mentor

Sharon Osbourne will have help from Robbie Williams, according to reports

Sharon Osbourne has enlisted the help of Robbie Williams to help her choose her X Factor finalists.

Robbie joined Take That bandmate Gary Barlow for the judges' houses round on the show in 2011.

But this year, Robbie will join Sharon at her Los Angeles home to help her choose her finalists in the Over 25 category to compete in the live shows of the ITV singing contest.

A source told The Sun: "Robbie is now part of the X Factor family and is always great value on the show. He's a completely safe bet and a big hit with viewers.

"So Sharon's happy, and he only lives round the corner so it's convenient."

While judges often hire swanky mansions, rather than use their own houses, Sharon will choose her finalists in her own home. Robbie, who has a young baby daughter, also lives in LA.

There had been rumours that Sharon's rocker husband Ozzy Osbourne may be her mentor for the show this year, and with her choosing to film in her own home he may still appear.

Whatever form this new situation takes, it will be empowering. You'll get help that was previously unavailable. If your current home can't support the lifestyle changes in your household, it is time to move. Search for a quiet hideaway where you can all rest and relax after a hard day's work.More
