Sharon Osbourne is so intent on making the set of her upcoming show homely, she's decorated it with furniture from her house.

The outspoken wife of rocker Ozzy Osbourne will debut her talk programme THE SHARON OSBOURNE SHOW in America today (15SEP03), and hopes her celebrity guests will feel at home when they stop by for a chat.

She says, "So many talk show sets look sterile and they don't reflect who the host is or what they're about. I didn't want that. All the rugs, all the chandeliers, a good percentage of the sofas and chairs are from my house.

"They just moved them right over to the studio, I would've taken part of my kitchen too, but that's built in.

"And, of course, I'll have my dogs with me on every show. The dressing room doors have pictures of all my dogs - MINNIE, MAGGIE, LOLA, NEW BABY. There's even a picture of Lulu, who was eaten by coyotes."
