Osbourne: No more X Factor for me

Sharon Osbourne has revealed she will never go back to The X Factor, even if Simon Cowell asks her.

The 59-year-old TV star - who is the voice of new character Mama Hook in hit Disney Junior show Jake And The Never Land Pirates - is a judge on America's Got Talent, but says she finds singing shows dull.

Sharon said: "A singing show I couldn't do again. It's too boring."

But she added she is "addicted" to X Factor rival The Voice and "absolutely loves" it.

She said: "At least with The Voice you listen with your ears not your eyes and that's the thing that's so great about it, because it's just the voice that attracts you, initially. And it's got a different twist to it.

"I love the way the judges interact musically with the contestants. It just makes it so much broader and so much more interesting."

Sharon has been on the panel of America's Got Talent for six years and loves it because it's about all kinds of talent. She said: "You never know what's going to come on the stage next, so you're always surprised."

The former X Factor judge also revealed she would love to do a show in the UK again, if she was offered one.

She said: "You know, I miss it so much. I miss my home, I miss everything about the UK. It's my home, it's where I'm from and you know, I just wish there was something there for me, but there isn't."

:: Season two of Jake And The Never Land Pirates will launch on Disney Junior UK on April 16.
