X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne has said she has forgiven her fellow show panellists for their insulting comments made about her daughter Kelly in the last series.
Last time around, her gobby and voluptuous Kelly was on the receiving end of many a barbed comment from Simon Cowell, regarding her weight.
The feisty wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne said: "If an older contestant came in, Simon would say: 'You're the same age, you can relate to them, being the oldest judge,' and if someone who weighed 14 stone came in, he would say: 'Oh, she looks like Kelly'."
"Now I think 'Simon's Simon. You accept him as he is'.
"The good thing about Simon is that he can take it as much as he can give it. Deep down, I like him and I certainly respect him. Let's just say I chose to forget what he said," she added.
But the smugly malevolent Cowell was not the only one to have a pop at Kelly, as X Factor favourite Louis Walsh, was also all too keen to give her kicking.
Hot-headed Sharon recalled: "He used the word hate, which is so unlike him.
"He also said: 'I think she is totally talentless. She's only famous because she has a silly mother and father'."
However, Louis has since apologised for his outburst, and now he Sharon and Kelly are all said to be fantastic chums.
