Sharon Osbourne has confirmed that she tested positive for COVID-19 and is now "recuperating" away from her husband Ozzy Osbourne, who shared at the start of the year he has Parkinson's disease.

The former X Factor judge shared the news on Twitter on Tuesday (December 15) where she told fans that she had spent a short amount of time in hospital.

"I wanted to share I've tested positive for Covid 19," she wrote, confirming that her US talk show The Talk is on a break that had previously been scheduled.

"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. Everyone please stay safe and healthy," she added.

The Talk's official account responded to the message to send well wishes.

"Wishing you a speedy recovery, Mrs. O, we love you," the message read.

Carrie Ann Inaba, her co-star on the CBS show and judge on the US version of Strictly Come Dancing, Dancing with the Stars, confirmed last week that she too had contracted the virus.

In a video posted to Instagram, Carrie Ann wrote that she has "been in a very safe environment following all the guidelines and safety protocols and it still found its way to me.

"So, this is a friendly reminder to be extra careful this holiday season."
