Ozzy's X Factor worries
16:30 16 November 2005
Ozzy Osbourne has warned the 'X Factor' contestants they could struggle to return to their normal lives after being on TV.
The rocker referred to last year's winner Steve Brookstein and said the hopefuls will find it tough to adapt to ordinary life after appearing on the hit programme.
Ozzy, who is married to 'X Factor' judge Sharon, said: "They never go anywhere. Look at that Steve from last year, I think he's back doing the pub circuit.
"It's all fine and dandy. I'm all for it if they enjoy it. But it's go to have some effect on them if they end up not pursuing a musical career, and going back to the same milkman job or window cleaning job."
The reality TV star also admitted he isn't a fan of talent shows like the 'X Factor'.
He is quoted in Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper as saying: "I don't like them. I think it's unfair to the artists. I'm a veteran, but for some guy to be a dustman or a hairdresser and get picked for that show? They must have more guts than anybody because they've got 10 million people watching them.
"And then one of them must leave. Their blood pressure must be like a hot water geyser."
