Ozzy says: 'No more Osbournes!'

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne
Ozzy Osbourne says he and his family have had enough of The Osbournes and won't be doing another series.

The aging rocker, who stars in the reality TV show with wife Sharon, and children Kelly and Jack, says he's sick of being filmed all day, everyday.

"At the end of it I didn't like having cameras around the house all the time," the Black Sabbath singer told reporters at the MTV Europe Awards in Rome.

"When you watch a 25-minute episode, I've been filming all day," he added.

Kelly Osbourne
Wife Sharon Osbourne agreed that it was time to end the series.

"Now everybody's doing reality shows. He's done it, he's been there, he's got to do something else," she said.

Millions of viewers

At its peak, The Osbournes regularly pulled in eight million viewers.

Since the series began Ozzy has seen sales of T-shirts, accessories and action figures hit 27.2m ($50m), which is a record for a heavy metal artist.

Currently Sharon's appearing as a judge in The X-Factor alongside Simon Cowell and Louis Walsh.

She was recently voted one of the most important people in rock.
