Sharon's regret over time apart

Sharon Osbourne has said spending time away from her children while she was working was her "biggest mistake".

The X Factor judge, her husband the Black Sabbath star Ozzy and two of their three children, Jack and Kelly, shot to fame in MTV reality show The Osbournes.

She told chat show host Graham Norton that "the hardest thing" was "being there" for her children

Speaking on his latest show, s he said: " We both worked to continue a lifestyle we had become accustomed to and we had to travel so my kids spent quite a time away from us and you can never get that time back. It was the biggest mistake I ever did, but would I have wanted to live a lesser life? You make the most of what you have.

"I don't know how, but Jack and Kelly came out just great."

Sharon said her marriage to Ozzy fell apart when he relapsed earlier this year, but the pair have now got back together.

She said: " It was the combination of drugs and drink and it was like, 'No, not again,' so I moved out. We are back together and it is all down to him, he is on the 12 steps and he is clean and sober. He stopped because he knows what he was going to lose, not just me but everything. He says we're like bread and butter. We fit together so perfectly. We are a team and the hardest thing I ever had to do was walk away."

Other guests included actor Colin Farrell and Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson who said he faced "shocking" reactions from green campaigners who are opposed to his views on the environment .

He said: " The other day some environmentalists threw horse manure over my garden gate and into my rose bed. They can throw some more if they want to fertilise my garden."

:: The Graham Norton Show is on BBC One at 10:35pm tonight (November 29).
