Sharon Osbourne refutes drunk allegations after name mix-up
TV star Sharon Osbourne has denied being drunk on The X Factor after forgetting one of her singers' names.
Osbourne (64) appeared to ask fellow judge Louis Walsh "what's her name?" after introducing Saara Aalto, who is in Osbourne's over-25s category, as the "songbird from abroad".
The X Factor judge told Good Morning Britain that she was "just terrible with names" after appearing to forget Aalto's name three times on the series.
"I was thinking about something else," she said.
"I wish I could come up with a better excuse."
She added: "It's just me, I'm just a bit dotty.
"But drinking? No."
