The 71-year-old TV personality was a judge on the talent show from 2004 to 2007 before returning in 2013, 2016 and 2017 and also appeared on America's Got Talent between 2007 and 2012.

“They didn’t really know how important it was and what it meant to people’s lives, and I think the whole thing needs to change.”

“Not only does it provide opportunities for a lot of people in their careers, but it can also harm a lot of people.” You have to be very, very careful.

“You care about people’s lives, you have their future in your hands and there is nothing to laugh about.”

Although she said she had no regrets, she admitted that she would not go back, stating: “I wouldn't want to take on that responsibility again, there is harm out there and I don't want to be a part of it.”

“I don’t regret it, I learned a lot about the responsibility of doing a show like this and it was a great education.”

On The X Factor, contestants competed to win a record deal by showcasing their musical talent.

However, a big part of the show – which caused controversy from the start – was that it was exploitative, encouraging people to audition only to be relentlessly criticized by the judges.

Sharon's comments come a year after she previously criticized talent shows such as The X Factor and America's Got Talent, this time for being “outdated”.

Speaking to TalkTV about Britain's Got Talent, she said: “But I think it's like a variety show and you can only last so long until you've sorted through everything… These types of shows are very outdated in my opinion. “

She added: “Everything here is crowded, so they're bringing talent from all over the world – like they do in America.” They're going to bring over all the Europeans, like they were queuing up to rehearse earlier than planned was.

“I've always said, if you've seen the show for a season or two and you go to the audition, you know what to expect. So don't be surprised or hurt because you saw everyone else going to the slaughter.”

Sharon decided to leave The X Factor judging panel in October 2018, despite previously confirming she would be returning for season 15.

In a statement, she said: “After watching the new season of The X Factor, I have seen the new judges find their rhythm and do an excellent job.”

“Simon was kind enough to give me a spot at the live shows, but at this point I really don’t think I’m needed and I’d honestly feel strange coming in at this point.”

“I've decided to give up on the show this year. “I wish the show continued success and as much as I love seeing my face on TV, you'll have to give up on me this season.”

However, in 2019, she claimed that she had been axed by fellow judge and series creator Simon Cowell because of her age.

During her appearance on The Talk, the presenter also revealed she had turned down a role in The Masked Singer as she was signed up to return to the ITV show instead.

Sharon shared: “I declined to be a judge on The Masked Singer. At that time I was hired for another show.

“I was signed to go to England and then Simon Cowell changed his mind and thought I was too old. 'I had a contract and couldn't do it.'

In her true comedic style, she joked: “Simon says, “She’s old. We need someone young. “So if you want to be young then fire yourself and get rid of these man t**s!”

She said of The

“The show belongs to Simon, and when I was there, Simon was never on the show. “So when the show did 16 million, 14 million, Simon was never there.”

However, Simon later expressed interest in working with Sharon again, despite their apparent feud.

The music mogul told The Mirror in 2019: “I called her the other day and said, 'Look, I'm being honest with you.' How could I criticize you for being cocky when that's the reason I hired you in the first place?”

However, in 2019 she claimed that she had been axed by fellow judge and series creator Simon Cowell because of her age (pictured on the show with Louis and Simon in 2005).

“Sharon gets a little carried away, but deep down she has a real affection for the shows.” I'm sure there will be other versions of these shows and she's always welcome back.

“There is absolutely no bad blood and like I said, if people think I'm mad at her, then I'm not! She's a good friend and always will be.”

In response, Sharon told The Talk: “Well, for me we were never friends.” Because for me it was business, not personal, and there's a huge line.

“That's what happens when you work with people you like. They fall out on business, but for me, I say what I feel and it's over for me.”

Although the friends patched things up, Sharon showed no interest in maintaining a professional relationship with Simon.

But she still denied wanting to reunite with Simon for another project, saying: “Just because I said certain things about and to Simon doesn't mean I hate him forever, just for that second I like him.” not him.”

“I never use the word hate when I talk about people. He's fine, it's just that I don't want to work with him.'
