Sharon Osbourne breaks down over Jack's diagnosis

Tuesday June 19, 2012

Sharon Osbourne couldn't contain her emotions on live TV when she was asked about her son Jack, who has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

The former X Factor judge burst into tears during CBD show The Talk, on which she appeared in her regular capacity as a co-host.

The 59-year-old, who has herself battled cancer, struggled to get her words out as she welled up.

"He's great – he's doing really, really good and I want to thank everyone for all their texts and goodwill and love they send to us," she finally managed to say.

Fellow presenter Julie Chen told Sharon that Jack is "an amazing guy, he's very courageous" before asking: "What else do you want say Mrs O?"

Sharon replied: "Just thank you to everyone for all their good wishes. It's been amazing … for Jack 'cause I really believe that vibes and prayer help."

Sharon's tears came just hours after HELLO! magazine published an exclusive interview with the mother and son team, revealing Jack's shocking diagnosis.
