Sharon Osbourne insists her family will always come before fame and money.

The reality TV star - who has three grown-up children, Aimee, Kelly and Jack, with rocker husband Ozzy Osbourne - admits her home life is the most important thing to her and will do anything she can to protect them.

Sharon - who overcame cancer - said: “Despite all I’ve achieved, Ozzy and our three gorgeous children are the most precious things in the world to me. Perhaps this is difficult to fully appreciate when you are young but your health and your family really are what is important in life, not fame and money. It might be an old cliche, but by God it’s true.”

Sharon, Ozzy, Kelly and Jack all appeared in hit MTV show ‘The Osbournes’ and while it brought them worldwide fame, Sharon admits she regrets eldest daughter Aimee not being in it because they couldn’t share much time together when filming was taking place.

She is quoted by website Mail Online as saying: “‘The Osbournes’ opened so many doors for us and both Jack and Kelly loved doing it. But although we pioneered the reality show I didn’t expect the wave of copycat programmes that followed. My eldest daughter, Aimee, is very private and doesn’t want anything to do with the world of celebrity - who can blame her? She elected not to appear in ‘The Osbournes’ and my only regret about doing the show is that it meant I spent less time with her while we were filming it.”
