The fly-on-the-wall look at Ozzy and his family has proved enormously popular in the US...

‘THE OSBOURNES’, the fly on the wall documentary based on Ozzy Osbourne and his family, has been given a UK air date.

The show, which has become the highest rating show in the history of MTV in the US, will receive its UK television premiere on MTV UK & Ireland on May 19 at 10pm. It will be shown weekly from then on.

The Ozzy Osbourne family gave programme makers almost unlimited access into their personal and professional lives, with 55 cameras hidden around their South Californian home. The family were followed for six months.
