Sharon Osbourne has been forced to fly home after her husband Ozzy Osbourne tested positive Covid – four days after her TalkTV show launched.
Ozzy has been public about his ongoing health issues over recent years, as he continues to battle Parkinson’s, which he revealed in January 2020.
The 73-year-old has been plagued with neck and spine issues after taking a tumble in 2019, which has kept him off stage ever since – but has now caught Covid.
Sharing the news, Sharon, 69, said: ‘Ozzy was only diagnosed in the middle of the night our time. I spoke to him and he’s OK. I am very worried about Ozzy right now.
We’ve gone two years without him catching Covid and it’s just Ozzy’s luck it would be now.’
Talking about returning to Talk TV Sharon said: ‘I can’t believe my luck. I’m missing the show and I’ve only been there three days. I can’t believe it. Three days and I’m missing the show but I will be back. I know I will.
‘It will take me a week to get my old man back on his feet again and I will be back.’
Asked how her family are doing, Sharon said: ‘Unfortunately, it was diagnosed in the middle of the night and they were all sleeping, so I haven’t spoken to them yet, but they’ll rally round, they’ll be with him.’
It comes after she appeared on Piers Morgan’s new TalkTV show Uncensored on Wednesday, with the host keen to know how Ozzy was doing.
He’s also suffered a staph infection in his thumb, been hospitalised with flu and suffered a fall in his LA home while in recovery, but the news from Sharon was good on Wednesday as she confirmed he has just one more surgery to go.
Sharon told Piers: ‘He’s doing okay, he sends you his love. He’s got one more operation left to do and then he’s dying to come back home,’ suggesting plans to move back to the UK.
Former Good Morning Britain presenter Piers then told Sharon to ‘send him my very best’.
