Former X Factor judge Sharon Osbourne has ruled out a return to the show, even if Simon Cowell was to personally ask her back.

Speaking at the launch of new Disney TV show Jake And The Never Land pirates, Sharon admitted to being "addicted" to X Factor rival The Voice UK, which continues on BBC One tomorrow night.

The 59-year-old, who appeared on the show from its start in 2004 until 2007, told the Press Association: "A singing show I couldn't do again. It's too boring."

The flame haired star went on: "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."

But Sharon did say she'd love to return to TV here in the UK on another show.

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."
