Piers Morgan travelled to America to interview Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne at home for Good Morning Britain. Following Ozzy’s Parkinson’s reveal, the ITV host quizzed the couple on how they are coping with the diagnosis and their plans to travel to Switzerland for radical treatment to help the rock legend’s immune system deal with the incurable disease.
Sharon explained there is no cure for Ozzy’s condition but the treatment aims to assist his immune system as there’s a high risk “a cold will turn into pneumonia”.
In January, The Black Sabbath singer told Good Morning America he was living with Parkinson’s after he experience a fall last February.
Piers kicked off the interview by asking Ozzy how he was doing to which Ozzy replied: “Let me put one thing straight, it’s been put in the papers that they discovered I had Parkinson’s when I had the fall.
“I’ve known about the Parkinson’s since 2003. I’ve had it all my life. The Parkinson’s I have is not like the Michael J Fox one.”

Sharon added: “It’s called Parkin 2. It’s a gene that Ozzy was born with and of course, Ozzy couldn’t get anything normal, it’s very rare and its path isn’t like normal Parkinson’s, that we all know.”
Sharon explained Ozzy was born with the gene before detailing the fall awoke the “dormant” gene.
Ozzy added: “When I fell on the floor, I remember thinking, ‘You’ve done it now Ozzy.’ I said to Sharon, ‘Can you phone an ambulance, I think I’ve broken my neck?’
“She was up and out of that bed like a flash - running and screaming around the house.”
