Osbourne Beats Mel B To Cowell Job

Outspoken rock matriarch SHARON OSBOURNE has beaten former SPICE GIRL MELANIE BROWN to a job on SIMON COWELL's new television project THE X FACTOR.

Osbourne, a TV veteran after the success of THE OSBOURNES and THE SHARON OSBOURNE SHOW, will appear alongside Cowell and pop svengali LOUIS WALSH on the show, which will pit three acts against each other.

And her appointment has come as a huge blow to the WANNABE singer who has failed to capitalise on her early success and is currently appearing onstage on Broadway, New York in RENT.

A show insider says, "Mel B was rumoured to be joining the judging panel with Simon and WESTLIFE manager Louis. But now producers have decided they want Sharon because she will be the rudest, most outspoken judge ever."

The X Factor is due to hit British screens in September (04).
