Louis Walsh reckons Sharon Osbourne should return as a judge on The X Factor

Louis Walsh has urged X Factor bosses to bring back Dannii Minogue's enemy Sharon Osbourne, according to reports.

The Irish judge said the show would be better if Sharon, who had a bitter bust-up with Dannii, returned full-time after she joined him as a mentor at the judges' houses stage of the competition.

He told newspapers: "Dannii who? Dannii's in Australia, we haven't seen her. Sharon is a friend of mine, Dannii is an acquaintance.

"Sharon is the best judge, what you see is what you get. I'd love Sharon to come back to X Factor."

He said: "She's not predictable like the judges on other shows, like those BBC shows for older people."

Louis admitted he was still disappointed about getting the Over-28s category - he wanted the boys or the groups.

He said: "The girls were having babies and malaria and all that type of thing... If Dannii or Cheryl had got the Overs, they'd have just run away back to Australia or wherever they're from."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
