Reportedly, the producer wanted to have 'fresh blood' in the judging panel on the show, which resulted in replacing Osborne and several other personalities. 

So, what is the actual reason?

66-year-old Sharon Osbourne blasts 59-year-old Simon Cowell for firing her on The X Factor U.K. for being “too old.”

On the evening show at The Talk, the British singer affirmed that she rejected the role on the Masked Singer because she was already contracted to do another show [The X-Factor] — or so she thought.

I was signed to go to England, and then Simon Cowell changed his mind and thought I was too old.

Simon allegedly told that Osbourne wasn't suitable for The X-Factor, as the show needed someone young. The singer was deeply hurt by such a remark and consequently, angrily replied:

So if you want young, fire yourself and get rid of those man t—.

The news of Osbourne’s reported firing comes roughly 6 months after she admitted it was merely her decision to leave the British version of the reality competition series.

Reactions of people

It always seems like there's no peace between hosts or judges on such remarkable shows. Sooner or later, even the besties untie their bond.
