Sharon quit X-Factor 'because of Dannii'

Sharon Osbourne has revealed that she quit the X-Factor as she did not like working with Dannii Minogue.

Dannii has clashed with other members of the panel in the past, with some reports claiming she is to be axed before the next series.

Sharon – who left the programme show last June – has said her decision was prompted by working alongside the Aussie star.

"I left because of Dannii Minogue. Simple as that," she told Closer. "I didn't enjoy working with her at all and didn't fancy the prospect of spending six months sitting next to her."

She denied rumours that she had stepped down from the show because she was jealous over the younger judge's looks. "There was no competition in that way," said Osbourne.

Dannii has recently claimed she is unaware of plans to axe her as judge on the hit show and replace her with Victoria Beckham or Lily Allen.

Dobby 'returning for Potter'

Harry Potter actor Toby Jones has hinted that he will reprise his role of Dobby the house elf in the next installment of the franchise.


The actor first appeared as the character in Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, but it has been unclear if he would feature in subsequent storylines.

Producer David Heyman has already claimed that several plot points would be removed for the film adpatation of Harry Potter And The Half-Blood Prince.

However, Jones told thelondonpaper that movie-goers may well be seeing more of the character.

"I believe so. It's all highly secret but I'm led to believe that Dobby will be back," he said.

He also revealed that he landed the part after an appearance in a West End production put pressure on his voice.

"You speak at such an unnaturally high pitch that people go: 'He's a shoo-in for an elf isn't he?'" he said.

Matt Smith 'not a Who fan'

Matt Smith has revealed he was not a fan of Doctor Who before he was chosen to play the famous Time Lord.

The 26-year-old was recently named as the successor to David Tennant, who is stepping down this year, making him the youngest ever actor to take the role.

However, Smith claims he did not hold out much hope of being picked as the eleventh Doctor, especially since he was not an aficionado of the show.

"I wasn't a Who fan. I have to be honest - I can't claim to have watched the show in its entirety or have been a follower as avidly as some people are," he said in an interview with Doctor Who magazine".

That's what I'm realising - that people love this show, people are avid, avid fans of it, and know it, and know its history and are part of it".

Smith is currently appearing in the BBC2 drama Moses Jones.

Amy moving to Jamaica?

Amy Winehouse is reportedly considering relocating to Jamaica to record her much-anticipated third album.

The Back To Black star has been holidaying on the neighbouring island of St Lucia, with many reports suggesting she is happy and healthy.

According to the Sun, the singer is so enamoured with the Caribbean she does not want to return to London.

"Amy is having the time of her life in St Lucia and doesn't want it to end. She is looking and feeling so much better and is worried about the bad influences waiting for her back in London," said a source.

The insider claimed that Amy has written "a big chunk" of her next album and is keen to go to Jamaica to record it.

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Amy has handed over control of money to her parents.

It means the singer will now need the permission of either parent to access her £15 million fortune.
