Osbourne To Swap X Factor For Dance Show?
Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne is reportedly set to swap her role as a judge on reality show The X Factor for a place in the British version of Dancing With The Stars.
Osbourne recently quit her job on the TV talent competition following a series of bitter feuds with fellow judge Dannii Minogue.
The 55-year-old had been lined up to take part in hit U.S. show Dancing With The Stars last year (07), but was forced to pull out following surgery.
And now that Osbourne is free of her The X Factor commitments, it looks as if she will finally be able to fulfill her dream and take part in the U.K. version of the show - Strictly Come Dancing.
A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "At the moment she's filming America's Got Talent for Simon Cowell and she's concentrating on her U.S. TV projects.
"Early last year, Sharon was meant to appear in Dancing With The Stars but she had to pull out to have an operation. She's always wanted to do it, so what better time to put on her dancing shoes and go up against the X Factor when the shows start again in September."
Both The X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing are slated to air in the U.K. in September (08), meaning they will go up against each for ratings in the prime time Saturday night slot.
