Sharon Osbourne meets her doppelganger

30 August 2013, 07:35

Los Angeles - Sharon Osbourne meets her doppelganger at this year's X Factor auditions. 

The 60-year-old returning judge comes face-to-face with redhead Hazel Jackson from Timperley, north west England, in the first episode of the new series, and the 72-year-old wannabe insists she has been photographed by paparazzi all day after they mistook her for the no-nonsense panellist. 

Fellow X Factor judges Nicole Scherzinger, Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh find the pair's likeness hilarious, and Sharon also sees the funny side of it by posing for a picture with her lookalike, who has the same hair colour as her and similar sunglasses. 

Following the hilarity, Hazel performs for the judges and Sharon jokes she has a lot in common with her because she can't sing in tune either. 

The scenes will air on the new series of the new-look X Factor spin-off Xtra Factor, which is hosted once again by Caroline Flack and newcomer Matt Richardson. 

During the pair's first show together they hold a street party with several famous faces from X Factor past including Rylan Clark, Christopher Maloney and boy band Union J.
