The legendary Black Sabbath frontman has contracted Covid

Sharon Osbourne has thanked fans for their support after her husband Ozzy was diagnosed with Covid, revealing the rocker is “on the mend”.

Aston-born Ozzy, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease and emphysema - a lung condition that causes shortness of breath - previously said he’d be f***ed if he caught the virus due to his condition.

Osbourne revealed her husband’s Covid diagnosis last Thursday (28 April) and said she was “very worried” about the 73-year-old Black Sabbath star.

The musician has a rare form of Parkinson’s called Parkin 2, which he has had since birth.

Speaking on TalkTV, she 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.”

She added: “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.”

The couple have been married since 1982 and they have three children together – Aimee, Kelly and Jack.
