Ozzy Osbourne was "stoned" in every episode of The Osbournes, according to his wife Sharon.

The Black Sabbath rocker and his wife Sharon, along with their children Kelly and Jack, became stars of the small screen back in 2002 when their TV series debuted on MTV and it was a huge success as millions tuned in to watch the family's zany antics before it was shelved in 2005 after four seasons. Sharon has now admitted Ozzy wasn't sober at all during the making of the show.

During her appearance on Celebrity Big Brother, Sharon opened up about the making of The Osbournes, telling her housemates: "He was stoned on every episode ... He was never sober."

Sharon went on to insist Ozzy has never watched a single episode of the show and never will. She added: "He's never seen it. Doesn't wanna see it. And he never watched one episode."

When Sharon was asked if she was ever "stoned" during filming, she replied: "[No] I don't [smoke]."

It comes after Ozzy previously admitted he worried the show ruined his kids' lives and they eventually walked away from the money-spinning series because it was not good for the family's well-being.

He told Rolling Stone: "We were asked to do another series, but the kids were [messed] up from it, I was [messed] up from it, and Sharon was going through cancer. Rock ’n’ roll fame was one thing, but TV was just off the ... Richter scale."

He also insisted The Osbournes was different to reality TV these days because it was totally natural and unscripted. He added: "You could be watching it, and suddenly someone comes running through with a ... frying pan on fire. It was just normal for us, we’d swear, we’d cuss, and there’d be ... dogs and dog [poo] everywhere.

"That’s what we were really like. It all started to get a bit silly in Season 3, where they’d suggest stuff like taking us on a boating trip, and I just thought, [no]."
