The X Factor is back this week and Sharon Osbourne hasn't resisted the chance to get a dig in at The Voice.

Ahead of the 14th series which will see Sharon reunite with Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger on the judging panel, she's accused The Voice of producing "no stars" and that it's a "gimmick with the twisty chairs".

She did say that she loves the judges and would do the show if she didn't have the X Factor, but that "you cannot judge talent on voice alone" and says the rival show has "all these toads up there and I'm sorry, half of them are backing singers".

Mrs O is also promising to be "tougher" this year and has promised an end to joke acts like Jedward and Wagner.

The X Factor is back this Saturday at 8pm on TV3.
