SHARON Osbourne will appear on Who Do You Think You Are? despite “despising” her family.
The 66-year-old star has fallen out with almost all of her family, spending years estranged from her mum, dad, older brother David, and hating her maternal grandmother.
However, Sharon is willing to unearth generational secrets with an appearance on the BBC’s ancestry show.
The Mirror report that the former X Factor judge was spotted filming for the programme in multiple locations, including Tunbridge Wells in Kent.
Details of what will be uncovered currently remain unknown, but it is expected that her Irish mother Hope, who died in 1998, and father Don Arden, who passed away in 2007, will be investigated.
Sharon has always been open about her disdain for her family, even admitting that she couldn’t wait for her dad to die.
Speaking previously, the mother-of-three shared: “There were times when I was on the floor crying and shaking because he’d threatened to come over to the house and kill me.
“He’s an evil old b*****d and I can’t wait for him to die.”
Sharon learned all about the music business by working for Don, who was born Harry Levy but changed his name for showbiz as he managed a series of music acts – including Ozzy Osbourne’s rock group Black Sabbath.
When the band fired Ozzy, Sharon started to manage him, sparking a war with her father who sued her for millions of pounds.
As their relationship became more and more fractured, Sharon even tried to run her father over in the ’80s, and the pair spent 20 years estranged before reconnecting shortly before his death.
Meanwhile, Sharon refused to go to her mother’s funeral, saying of her in the past: “I didn’t like my mother at all.
“There was no friendship, nothing at all.”
In fact, Sharon was so distant from her mum that when she was told of her passing she simply said “Oh, what a shame” before hanging up the phone.

She also spoke openly about her hatred for her mum’s mother Dolly, although she was close to Don’s mum.
Despite her difficult home life, Sharon settled down with Ozzy and the pair have been married for more than 30 years, sharing three grown-up children together – Aimee, Kelly and Jack.
Who Do You Think You Are? will return to our screens later this year, with seven other celebrities also signing up for the show – including Hollywood actress Kate Winslet.
