X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne has announced she's quitting the hit TV talent show.

Sharon was on the show for four series and sat on the judging panel with Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and more recently Danni Minogue.

She was known as an outspoken judge and famously threw two glasses of water over Louis after he criticised one of her acts.

In a statement she thanked Simon Cowell and people in the UK for their support.
