The X Factor Bosses Deny Osbourne Sacking Reports
In an angry expose in U.K. newspaper the News of the World on Sunday (02Sep07), Arden alleged Osbourne had been dropped from the show because co-judge Simon Cowell had tired of her constant gay jibes and attempts at sabotage by encouraging one contestant to quit the TV talent search.
But producers behind The X Factor insist the allegations are "unfounded".
A spokeswoman for the show says, "These claims are ridiculous. Sharon has never been sacked from the show and the fact that she's now back for a fourth series speaks out for itself.
"It's no secret that (contestant) Ben (Mills) and Sharon disagreed over song choices but no way did she try to sabotage the show."
