Sharon offered help from rivals

Sharon Osbourne chose Shelley Smith, Lorna Simpson and Sam Bailey for her X Factor category's final three

Sharon Osbourne has said she has been offered help by the competition on X Factor.

The Overs category mentor told ITV's Lorraine that her fellow judges had offered to help out her contestants while she travelled between the US and the UK.

Sharon revealed: "I get calls from Nicole and Gary and they'll say to me, we know you are travelling back and forth and if there is anything you want me to do or anybody needs some extra time, we're here."

At judges' houses Sharon was seen in Los Angeles enlisting the help of Robbie Williams in choosing her category final three, Sam Bailey, Shelley Smith and Lorna Simpson.

She said of Robbie: "He didn't just come and do that - he was chatting with us, he was talking with us, he was talking about his little girl, his little girl was there, his lovely wife was there. He was just so normal and I was just, 'swoon!'"

Sharon also added that her own daughter Kelly was "a naughty girl because she's not here! She needs to be here - she wants to come in for the first show, she's hoping to be here for the first show to cheer us on."

Talking about her granddaughter Pearl, her son Jack's child, Sharon said: "It's an absolute gift. People go, you know I'm old now, but you know what, gifts come as you get older and grandchildren is one of those gifts from God and it's just the best thing that has happened to our family in years."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

Don't get involved with a hidden intrigue. The drama will be exciting at first, but eventually you will tire of keeping secrets. If someone is interested in you romantically, you shouldn't have to sneak around together. An oppressive work situation may tempt you to quit your job. Try not to discuss your plans with colleagues. You don't want a rival to tell your employer about your resignation until you're ready to tender it. Protect your interests at all costs.More
