Sharon Osbourne is set to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house during tonight's episode, understands.


As was first reported by MailOnline, the reality star and former X Factor judge will exit the show shortly after the second live eviction of the series, bringing her eight-day stint in the house to an end.

Sharon had been given the role of 'lodger' during the series, which saw her staying in separate living quarters from the other celebrities, and she had always been open that she would not be participating in the full series.

After much speculation, she was the first celebrity to be confirmed for this year's show during last week's launch night and was instantly tasked with deciding which three housemates to place up for eviction.

During her stay, she revealed that the reason she couldn't continue for longer was she didn't want to be apart from her husband Ozzy Osbourne, who was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease in 2019.

"I don't want to stay away from Ozzy for too long," she said. "We're so close as a family. I don't think I have ever gone a week without talking to any of them, ever.

"Through fights, feuds, everything. We still talk and this will definitely be the longest."
