Sharon Osbourne has announced her plans to retire from the entertainment industry.
The ‘X Factor’ judge has revealed she is hoping to step out of the limelight in five years time, to coincide with her 50th year in show business.
She is quoted by The Sun as saying: “I’ve given myself five years then it’s time to say goodbye from the industry. I just think that it would be enough, I want to keep my dignity. I’ve been working since I was 15 in this industry and I think that’s enough.
Sharon, 64, has had a busy few years, jetting back and forth from the States to fulfill filming commitments on ‘The X Factor’ as well as US chat show ‘The Talk’.
Her marriage to rocker Ozzy Osbourne was also placed under strain when it was reported he’d had an affair last year.
The pair eventually worked through their problems and have since renewed their wedding vows.
Sharon recently hinted retirement could be on the cards for Ozzy too, telling Rolling Stone last year: “It’s not going to be within the next year, but it’s coming up.
