Original X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne has made an iconic return to this year's judging panel. Attending the first round of auditions in Glasgow, Sharon, 60, was treated to a warm Scottish welcome by two shirtless kilted men as she made her way to the Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor hotel. The muscular pair – who wore bow ties for added comedy value – walked side by side the media personality as she strode across the red carpet.

Placing an arm around her companions, Sharon looked spirited in cool white jacket and black trousers with some trademark shades to complete the monochrome look. The Osbournes star will join Nicole Scherzinger, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh as a judge on this year's series. Part of the show's original judging line-up in 2004, veterans Sharon and Louis will be reunited once more. The new team are reportedly dined with the X Factor bosses on Monday evening, and hope to share a lot more jokes and a lot less spats. "They wanted to make a pact to make this year's X Factor about fun not fights. We won't believe it will last beyond day one of auditions!" reported a source.
As well as reintroducing Sharon to the panel, the programme bosses hope to bring back some popular elements from previous runs of the show. Contestants will face judges in an intimate room setting before they enter an auditorium for their second audition. Sharon will be celebrating success in her career and her love life. The star has rekindled her romance with rocker husband Ozzy Osbourne after he relapsed with substance abuse problems.
Making a public apology for his mistake and the way that he treated "the people I love the most," Ozzy and Sharon seem to be back on track. The pair recently walked a red carpet for An Evening With Women gala at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills with daughter Kelly. Proving that their relationship is stronger than ever, the pair shared a heart-warming kiss and embrace on the red carpet.
