Sharon Osbourne is bowing out.

The 65-year-old has announced that she will be leaving X Factor UK after several seasons on the judges’ panel.

The talent show is currently in the middle of its 15th season, with Sharon expected to join fellow judges, Robbie Williams, Ayda Williams, Louis Tomlinson, and Simon Cowell for the upcoming live segment.

“After watching the new season #XFactor unfold, I’ve seen the new judges finding their rhythm and are doing brilliantly. Simon was so gracious to find me a spot on the live shows but at this point I really don’t think I’m needed and I would honestly feel odd coming in at this point. So I have decided to pass on the series this year,” she wrote on Facebook.

The Talk co-host also thanked her fans for their support.

See you soon, Sharon!
