Sharon Osbourne said her eyes hurt and she ‘still can’t smell or taste very much’ after she contracted coronavirus in December.
The 68-year-old had to self-isolate away from husband Ozzy Osbourne, 72, and was briefly hospitalised.
After testing negative twice she was allowed to return home days before Christmas and the couple have been staying at home with their dogs since.
When The Talk returned after its scheduled hiatus, Sharon shared her experience with the virus, detailing her symptoms.
Speaking to co-stars Sheryl Underwood, Carrie Ann Inaba – who also had the virus – Elaine Welteroth and Amanda Kloots, Mrs O said: ‘I’m fine now except that I’m still very tired. I nod off at ridiculous times of the day.
‘I’m good. I went through all the symptoms, eye ache, body ache, dizziness, sickness, all of it.
‘But you know there’s people who are much worse than I got it. They have it much worse and I just think I came out very lucky.
‘I still can’t smell very much or taste very much.’
Carrie Ann added that she had lost her sense of taste and smell and revealed that the ‘fear’ has been the hardest thing to deal with.
She said: ‘I think the worst part was the fear factor and trying to manage the fear. On the news we have so many images.
‘I was just trying to stay in control of what I was doing to help myself and get through and manage all the symptoms. I was staying focused on positivity and thank you all for reaching out. I am grateful I made it through.’
Amanda lost her husband, actor Nick Cordero, to the virus last year and Carrie sent her love and support.
‘I thought of you a lot and I have even more compassion and love in my heart and I want to support you in any way I can,’ Carrie Ann said.
Amanda recently shared that she is ready to go to therapy ‘address the trauma’ of his death after finding New Year tough.
