The judge is also a presenter on American chat show ‘The Talk’, and throughout this year’s ‘X Factor’ run, she has jetted back and forth across the Atlantic to fulfill her commitment to both series.
However, although she’s keen to sign up for another year on the ‘X Factor’ panel, it has been claimed her decision may not go down well with ‘The Talk’ producers.
A source told The Sun: “Sharon has really enjoyed the show this year and is desperate to go back.
Sharon previously admitted she was in a “difficult position” about returning to ‘The X Factor’, telling OK! Online: “I’m signed to CBS and I’ve been with them for seven years with amazing women on The Talk and it’s up to Simon to see if they’ll let me do it.
“It just felt fun and we have such a good energy and chemistry on the panel and that makes a big difference. I am definitely open to the thought of coming back.”
