Sharon Osbourne has criticised America’s Got Talent, saying that she received less pay and perks than her fellow judges.

In an interview with Howard Stern, The X Factor judge said:  "Howie [Mandel] gets around $100k a show but he gets his own plane. I got an American Airlines…ticket!"

She added: "You know what? England and Australia pay more than here [the US]."

The Mirror added that in addition to being angry over receiving $30k less than Mandel, Osbourne left NBC after a row following their decision to drop her son Jack’s show after his multiple sclerosis diagnosis.
