LONDON: A raging Sharon Osbourne hurled a pen at a 73-year-old X Factor wannabe who slammed her hubby Ozzy Osbourne.

The reinstated judge lost it after singing hopeful Jonnie Rocco refused to accept her rejection.

Jonnie, who failed to make it past the initial audition rounds in 2007, tried to win over the judges with his rendition of An American Trilogy by Elvis at the Manchester auditions last month.

‘You think Ozzy can sing?’ he asked Shazza after she delivered her verdict.

‘Get him out of my f***ing room,’ Sharon ordered show security before flinging her pen which pinged off the OAP’s shoulder as he was frogmarched away.

An X Factor insider said: ‘Jonnie hit a really raw nerve and Sharon was furious.

‘Normally she takes criticism from contestants on the chin.

‘But she and Ozzy have obviously been through a tough time this year and any negative remarks about him are like a red rag to a bull as far as she’s concerned,’ the source added to The Sun.–EM
