Sharon Osbourne is expected to sign a deal shortly sealing her return to The X Factor.

The star, 60, who quit as a judge after four years in 2008, is set to return as part of a revamped ITV show, after last year's series suffered in the ratings.

Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh are expected to return, while Mel B has reportedly been drafted in as a replacement for Nicole Scherzinger if the ex Pussycat Doll does not sign.

A spokesman for the show denied reports that Sharon had already inked a £1.8 million deal.

Her husband, rocker Ozzy, 64, recently admitted to having a drink and drugs relapse and publicly apologised to Sharon and his family.
