After appearing as a judge on and off since 2004, Sharon Osbourne announced her exit from The X Factor U.K. over the weekend.
"After watching the new season [of] #XFactor unfold, I’ve seen the new judges finding their rhythm and are doing brilliantly," Osbourne wrote in a Facebook statement. "Simon was so gracious to find me a spot [for] on the live shows but at this point I really don’t think I’m needed and I would honestly feel odd coming in at this point. So I have decided to pass on the series this year. I wish the show continued success and as much as I love to get my face on TV you will have to do without me this season."
