Ozzy Osbourne has revealed that his Buckinghamshire mansion has been severely damaged by the recent floods.

The Black Sabbath legend, who spends most of his time in Los Angeles, says the £5million house is “ruined” and he and Sharon will have to wait nine months for it to dry out before restoration work can begin.

65-year-old Ozzy told the Daily Mirror: “It’s been completely flooded. The rain has battered down the walls and seeped through everything. There is water everywhere.

“We’ve been told it’s going to cost £300,000 to repair but we can’t even go about getting it fixed because apparently it’s going to take nine months to dry out. The place is ruined. If it’s not one thing, it’s the other.”

Buckinghamshire was one of the many places severely affected by the recent floods. The Met Office has confirmed that it was the wettest winter since records began in 1910 in parts of the UK.

Ozzy’s abode in the affluent village of Jordans, Bucks has been a bad luck omen for him in recent times.

In 2003 Ozzy broke his collarbone, eight ribs and a neck vertebra in a quad bike accident in the sprawling grounds of the mansion.

A year later in November 2004 the house was burgled with the thieves making away with a string of precious items of jewellery and gems.
