Sharon Osbourne has revealed she will not be spending Christmas with her husband Ozzy for the first time in 40 years.

Sharon appeared on the British TV show, Loose Women to reveal the news and said its because she is needed in the UK, while Ozzy is too unwell to fly over from the USA.

He’s going to stay home with Jack and Amy and the grandkids and I’m here with Kelly,’ she told her fellow Loose Women panellists. ‘It’s the first time – this will be our 40th Christmas – that we’re not together.

It’s going to be different. Kelly and I are going out for our Christmas lunch.’

Asked how Ozzy was doing, Sharon replied: ‘He fell and damaged his spine. It’s kind of been a domino effect, one thing happens then another thing. ”

‘The doctors didn’t want him to get on the plane. And Ozzy I must say is quite nervous about flying all that way.’
