Sharon Osbourne takes leave after collapse
Sharon Osbourne has announced she will be breaking from her post on US daytime programme The Talk for one month as part of doctors’ orders.
The 62-year-old television personality co-hosts the American daytime programme with Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, Aisha Tyler and Sheryl Underwood.
Last week after working non-stop from New York City to Toronto Sharon lost consciousness and doctors have advised her to take time off.
“[She] collapsed from mental and physical fatigue," her representative told ET Online.
"Sharon has been advised [by her doctors] and has agreed to to take a month hiatus to recover fully from these recent events. Sharon would like to thank everyone at The Talk for granting her this time off and to all friends, family and others for their incredible support."
Sharon, who’s been co-host of The Talk since 2010, has experienced a number of health breakdowns in 2015 so far.
The star underwent surgery for a hernia in March and shortly after the procedure she came down with pneumonia.
And physicians believe Sharon’s most recent health scare is probably in part due to the stress from her hectic schedule.
"Her doctors report that she is suffering from 'extreme exhaustion' and assessed that she most likely returned to work too soon after being hospitalised recently for pneumonia," her representative noted.
Sharon has been active on Twitter in the past few days, posting photos of herself with husband Ozzy and daughter Kelly.
She also managed to share some tweets in promotion of Red Nose Day, an event which benefits a host of charities.
Sharon’s had her fair share of health issues in the past, as she is a cancer survivor, having being diagnosed with the disease in 2002.
