SHARON OSBOURNE’s spent a large part of her career judging other people’s singing talents on national television – but the shoe is about to be put firmly on the other foot.
I can reveal she will be testing her own warbling chops after bagging a role in Nativity! The Musical this Christmas.

The rock manager turned talent show judge will jet from Los Angeles in December to spend three weeks on stage alongside EastEnders hardman Danny Dyer.
The musical is hoping to repeat its success from 2017 and 2018, with its UK tour starting in October before returning to the capital for Christmas.
Danny played The Producer last year
It Takes Two host Rylan Clark-Neal has also been announced to star in the shows at London’s Eventim Apollo, which run from December 11 to 29.
Sharon has admitted: ‘I sing terribly and it will be very funny. You’ll hear these huge amount of boos when I sing’[/caption]

In an exclusive interview, Sharon said with a squeal: “I’m going to be coming to do the Nativity at the Apollo over Christmas.
“This is the way it was. For three years they’ve been asking me, ‘Do it, do it, please do it’. I’m like, ‘yeah I’d love to do it’.
“So I’m going to do it this year and I’m excited about it, working with all those kids, 31 kids. Danny is in it this year, of course.
“It’s going to be amazing. Danny is coming back.”
Sharon is following in the footsteps of pal Louis Walsh who previously starred in the show[/caption]
Sharon, whose stage role has not yet been revealed, follows in the footsteps of pal Louis Walsh and comedian Jo Brand, who have both featured in the show.
Nativity! The Musical is based on the 2009 film of the same name, which follows a group of primary school children whose teacher Mr Poppy has ambitions to turn their musical nativity into a Hollywood movie.
But Sharon, who began her career managing husband Ozzy Osbourne’s band Black Sabbath, isn’t holding out much hope of hitting the high notes.
She added: “I sing terribly and it will be very funny. They’ll walk out. You’ll hear these huge amount of boos when I sing.”
Reminds me of a few of her X Factor acts . . .

Hot dish put in front of mum
AFTER his short-lived romance with Naomi Campbell, Liam Payne has gone back to familiar territory with his ex, model Maya Henry.
But this time the former One Direction singer is showing her he is dead serious about their relationship, by introducing Maya to his mum Karen.

They met over a posh dinner in Manchester restaurant Tattu last week – and Liam was desperate to get his parent’s approval.
A source said: “Liam was really keen for Maya and his mum to get on and was leading the conversation throughout their meal. Maya followed his lead and kept complimenting his mum.
“Liam is absolutely smitten with Maya and kept touching her arm and cuddling up with her.
“He also referred to her as ‘baby’ the whole night and couldn’t stop smiling at her. Introducing her to his mum shows how much he thinks of her.”

The pair were first linked in the summer of 2018, soon after Liam split from Cheryl Tweedy, but ended it because of their hectic schedules.
Now pals say Liam is determined it will last. Winning over his mum is a good place to start.

In the movie Jen plays a stripper who cons her wealthy New York customers.
At the premiere she insisted she is a stronger athlete than her fiance, ex-baseball player Alex Rodriguez.
J-Lo said: “I’m a bit more of an animal. He’s retired, he loves to work out but I’m super competitive.”
Sounds like she’s going for gold.

LIAM GALLAGHER likes to come across as the tough guy but he’s a softie when it comes to his looks.

He’s come a long way since those humble Manchester roots.
Though you can understand why he’s precious about his teeth, given they were knocked out by a group of computer salesmen during a row in Munich in 2002.
In a new interview, he said: “I’m constantly brushing my teeth. Whenever I walk past a toothbrush I’ll have a little go, quick tidy. I take one out with me as well.
“I had one last time I went to City and Arsenal. The security geezer asked me what it was for.
“I said, ‘Because the red wine’s good at Arsenal and I’ll be getting stuck into it in hospitality. And I don’t want to look like I’ve eaten a plum’.
“Especially when people are asking you for f***ing selfies every two seconds.”
And they say rock ’n’ roll is dead . . .
