Sharon Osbourne is fuming with reports she'll team up with Simon Cowell for his new British talent show THE X-FACTOR - because she'd never work with the TV star.

Osbourne and Cowell fell out when the American Idol and Pop Idol judge suggested Ozzy Osbourne's pre-Christmas (03) quad-bike accident was a publicity stunt.

The two appeared to have patched up their differences when Cowell guest starred on Sharon's American chat show, but she insists she could never work with her fellow Brit.

She says, "I cannot stand him. I wouldn't want to work with him. I don't like him. He's too over-opinionated and I'm not interested in all of that. He's mean."
