Sharon Osbourne has been persuaded to return to judging a UK TV talent show. Simon Cowell has talked her into joining the panel for his latest prime time venture.

But sparky Sharon isn’t going to find herself back on the X Factor any time soon.

Instead, Si has signed her up to his new doggy talent show.

Simon, who has always loved a dancing canine, is launching Take The Lead to air next year.

Sharon, who has several dogs of her own, will judge alongside comic Billy Bailey and Britains Got Talent winner Ashleigh Butler.

Christine Bleakley will host the show.

A source told The Sun: “Simon loves dogs and Pudsey [Ashleigh’s dog] proved that the public do too.

“Sharon and Bill will be great judges alongside Ashleigh.”
