Sharon Osbourne is transformed into a pirate's mum as she is seen for the first time in her new animated role for a children's show.

The 59-year-old takes a role in the Disney Junior hit series Jake And The Never Land Pirates, playing Captain Hook's exuberant mother Mama Hook.

Her debut as the grey-haired character in an episode called Mama Hook Knows Best will be screened this summer.

Viewers will see her trying to mend her son's ways after finding he has been swiping treasure when she visits Never Land.

Former X Factor judge Sharon said: "Mama Hook was a pleasure to play and she's quite similar to me in that she's strong and wants her boy to be the best he can be - she doesn't like it when he's causing trouble.

"Also, it's just great to do a job where you don't have to get all made up in the morning; it's all about the voice."
