Johnny Depp is due to star alongside Jeff Beck at Symphony Hall this evening (Monday, June 6)

Sharon Osbourne said the lawsuit between her friend Johnny Depp and Amber Heard was “ugly for both of them”, but hopes they can move on from it.

American actor Depp won his multimillion-dollar defamation case against former partner and Aquaman star Heard last week, over a 2018 op-ed she wrote in the Washington Post, which his lawyers said falsely accused him of physically and sexually abusing her.

Speaking about the court case, TV presenter Sharon Osbourne, 69 - married to Brummie rock legend Ozzy Osbourne - told Lorraine Kelly on her ITV morning show: “It’s very very ugly, for both of them.

“Listen, what goes on at home between two people, nobody knows, all the ugly details.

“We all have our ugliness in our relationships but theirs was extreme – hopefully they can move on.”
