X Factor UK judge Sharon Osbourne has claimed Simon Cowell is a "big old softie" and insists she never "seriously" fell out with the media mogul.

Sharon Osbourne says Simon Cowell is a "big old softie".

The X Factor UK judge revealed the media mogul was the first to get in touch following her son, Jack's, multiple sclerosis diagnosis, and insisted he’s a better man than people give him credit for.

She told the Daily Mail newspaper, "He's a good man. He was the first person to contact me when my son, Jack, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

"He's a big softie underneath it all, a big old softie."

The 60-year-old star ? who’s making her return to Simon's talent show after a long hiatus ? also denied any rumours of a major rift between the pair.

She explained, "We've never fallen out seriously. It was just that when Simon said he didn't like working with me, I thought, 'Well, I'm going to say something mean about you'.

"Then we spoke and he said, 'Let's stop this. It's ridiculous. We're only hurting ourselves.’ And I said, 'I agree'."

Fellow judge Louis Walsh echoed Sharon's kind words for Simon and insisted the star ? whose lover Lauren Silverman is expecting his first son ? will embrace fatherhood.

He added, "He's the biggest kid I know. He's going to spoil that child. It will be the best thing that's happened to him."
