Caroline Flack has backed Sharon Osbourne for 'The X Factor' panel.
The 'Xtra Factor' presenter "loved" it when the 'The Talk' host was a judge on the ITV talent show from 2004 to 2007 because she was "outrageously funny", and the brunette beauty would welcome the 60-year-old star back to the panel should she return for the forthcoming series.
She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "Sharon Osbourne is ace. She came over to do Judges Houses last year at Louis' house and she's just outrageously funny. She's always coming out with the funniest things and making you laugh. She's good - I loved her when she was on the show."
Sharon has been hotly tipped to return to the 'X Factor' this year as a replacement for Tulisa, but Caroline would welcome the N-Dubz singer and last year's panellists Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger back on the show because she "got on so well" with the quartet.
The 33-year-old star added: "I loved all the judges we've had on over the past two years. I get on so well with all of them."
Olly Murs - who has quit his role as Caroline's 'Xtra Factor' co-host in order to "refresh" his mind and sort out his work-life balance - has also backed Sharon to return to the 'X Factor' panel.
He recently said: "I love Sharon Osbourne - it would be great to have her back.
"It would be great to have her and another girl on the panel but I'm not too sure who. Definitely Robbie and Gary Barlow though - that would be pretty cool."
Caroline took part in an exclusive photoshoot to mark the launch of new Sure Compressed deodorants, which are half the size of the traditional larger aerosol but last just as long www.compresseddeodorants.com
