London: Singer Gary Barlow, who will judge Britain`s ‘The X Factor’, is glad to have Sharon Osbourne on the show.

Osbourne judged the show for three years and her last appearance was in 2007. She is now back and joins Barlow, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger in the judges panel.

"There’s no question she’s (Osbourne) the head judge ... She has been in and stood on it. She’s the queen. She’s back. It’s been brilliant having her back. It’s so good to have someone who has done so much TV work because she is totally at ease and she has brought out the worst in all of us," thesun.co.uk quoted Barlow as saying.

However, Barlow does fear that Osbourne`s popularity will overshadow everyone else`s presence. But he is not complaining.

"The one thing I was dreading though was Sharon coming back and just stealing the whole thing - but that’s not her style at all.

"She’s come back and, like I said, she’s brought out the worst in everyone, which everyone is loving. And so going on to the set each day, it was just like I can’t wait to get up there and have a laugh," he said.

The judges are currently auditioning in various parts of Britain to select the contestants.
