Sharon Osbourne has confirmed that she has tested positive for coronavirus and was briefly admitted to hospital.
In a tweet on Tuesday morning, The Talk host announced that she had been diagnosed with Covid-19 but that fortunately her husband Ozzy Osbourne was safe and well.
‘I wanted to share I’ve tested positive for Covid 19. After a brief hospitalization, I’m now recuperating at a location away from Ozzy (who has tested negative) while “The Talk” is on scheduled hiatus,’ the former X Factor host tweeted.
She added: ‘Everyone please stay safe and healthy.’
Sharon was flooded with well wishes, including a message from The Talk team who tweeted from the show’s official account: ‘Wishing you a speedy recovery, Mrs. O, we love you.’
It comes just days after Sharon’s co-host on The Talk, Carrie Ann Inaba, revealed she had also tested positive for coronavirus.
Sheryl Underwood told viewers last week: ‘As you can see, Carrie Ann is not here with us today.
‘She found out this morning that she tested positive for Covid-19. Obviously, our thoughts are with her, we love her, and we’re praying for a full recovery. And, out of an abundance of caution, Mrs. O will be doing the show from home today, even though she tested negative for the coronavirus.’
‘I send all my love and prayers to Carrie Ann,’ Sheryl added.
Carrie Ann revealed she was experiencing some symptoms such as a fever, bad cough and ‘lots of aches and pains’.
In an Instagram video, she urged: ‘I just wanted to remind you all to stay vigilant because I am following all the protocols and have so many strict protocols in place and even then I caught it.’
Sharon’s husband Ozzy recently opened up about his precarious health and admitted that he’d be ‘f****d’ if he caught Covid-19 as he has emphysema.
The former Black Sabbath rocker told GQ earlier this month: ‘If I go out, I wear a mask, but I don’t like wearing a mask, so I don’t go out much.’
More than 299,000 people have died from coronavirus in the US, which has over 16.6 million confirmed cases.
