Two very different messages on Christmas Day, then...

SHARON OSBOURNE is to go head-to-head with THE QUEEN at Christmas – as they will both be delivering messages to the nation at the same time.

Sharon, who met Queen Elizabeth II when her husband Ozzy Osbourne performed at her Golden Jubilee celebrations in the summer, will give an ‘alternative message’ on Christmas Day (December 25).

Traditionally The Queen speaks to the nation at 3pm on the day. Sharon’s message will be broadcast simultaneously on Channel 4 at the same time.
