Sharon Osbourne had a pretty wild time on the X Factor over the weekend.
The returning judge caused a meltdown on Twitter with her flirting, smearing of words and all round party attitude.
However, it’s not what you think. Or at least, Mrs O has said it isn’t.
In response to accusations that she was drunk during the show, Sharon defended herself on her US chat show The Talk.
“Why is it while you’re there and you’re having fun and you’re being silly, do you have to be drunk?” Sharon asked her Talk co-hosts. “It’s entertainment and it goes out late on a Saturday night.”
She added: “I’m there with my bestest – Nicole Scher-linger-linger… She’s funny. She’s naughty and you have fun.”
Sharon did slip up a bit however, missing her cue on Saturday night and even covering Nicole Scherzinger’s breasts with her hands.
Julie Chen and Sara Gilbert also backed up Mrs O’s claimed that she wasn’t drinking, with Sara saying: “I’ve been with Sharon drunk and she wouldn’t be covering the girl’s boobs, she’d be exposing them.”
Julie chimed in: “Trust me, we’ve been out with Sharon when she’s been tipsy, you’ll know!”
The X Factor airs on ITV Saturday and Sunday at 8pm.
