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.
