Sad reason Sharon Osbourne is only in Celebrity Big Brother house for five days

Sad reason Sharon Osbourne is only in Celebrity Big Brother house for five days

The TV legend is only making a flying visit

Sharon Osbourne is one of the most celebrated stars to enter the Celebrity Big Brother house this year, but viewers are pretty gutted that she's only there for a flying visit.

The nation has been buzzing to see the TV star, 71, back alongside her fellow former X Factor judge Louis Walsh on the iconic reality show which has been rebooted by ITV.

It turns out that her Irish pal apparently drove a hard bargain when producers began negotiations to get him on the show, as he reportedly only agreed to take part if they signed up Osbourne too.

But she will only be in the Celebrity Big Brother house for just five days rather than the full three week period, leaving Walsh to fend for himself alongside housemates such as Strictly Come Dancing's Nikita Kuzmin, Coronation Street's Colson Smith and Real Housewives of Cheshire icon Lauren Simon.

Love Island's Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, Marisha Wallace, Fern Britton, Zeze Millz, David Potts, Gary Goldsmith, Levi Roots and Heartstopper star Bradley Riches are also among the contestants this year.

Despite the fact she's only doing a short stint on Celebrity Big Brother, Osbourne is reportedly being paid handsomely for lending Walsh a hand - to the tune of £100,000 a day.

Many people have been left wondering why the ex-America's Got Talent judge is only a 'lodger' on the show as well as the reasoning behind why she can only spend just under a week in the house.

And the answer to those questions will really pull on your heart strings.

Osbourne explained that she can't leave her husband Ozzy Osbourne, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, for long periods.

The former Black Sabbath frontman was diagnosed with a 'mild' form of the condition in 2003, but only revealed his diagnosis with the degenerative neurological disorder publicly back in 2020.

He has discussed how he has been left in 'f**king agony' due to the crippling nerve pain, blood clots, and depression he has suffered following his diagnosis.

Osbourne revealed she didn't know how she would 'cope' with missing Ozzy, 75, before she headed into the house.

Sharon has been married to Ozzy Osbourne for 42 years.

Discussing her decision to be in-and-out of Celebrity Big Brother, she explained: "I don’t want to stay away from Ozzy for too long. We’re so close as a family. I don’t think I have ever gone a week without talking to any of them, ever.

"Through fights, feuds, everything. We still talk, and this will definitely be the longest."

Osbourne is also apparently enjoying another perk which is normally absolutely forbidden on Big Brother - contact with the outside world.

She is reportedly receiving a 'daily welfare update' on her beloved husband, who she has been married to for more than four decades after tying the knot in 1982, according to The Sun.

A source claimed that she'll only be 'kept up to speed' with Ozzy and not be receiving any information about 'what is going on in the real world'.
