Kelly Osbourne has shared a moving message from her dad Ozzy saying he was heartbroken about not getting to hug her because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Rocker Ozzy, 71, has Parkinson’s disease and Kelly recently posted a message on Instagram saying that he – and her 67-year-old mum Sharon – were high risk.

The family recently saw each other after three weeks apart and Kelly shared a picture of the text she received from her dad afterwards.

“If I would have known 3 weeks ago when I sent them off to panama that that was gonna be the last time I got to hug and kiss them for a while… I would have held on a little longer. “

“However these are the sacrifices we must make.

“I stay home for my mum and dad. If you don't have anyone to stay home for I beg you #StayHomeForOzzy.”

Ozzy revealed in January that he had been diagnosed with Parkinson’s.

Meanwhile, Sharon has had her own health struggles in the past after being diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2002.

Having survived the disease, the mother-of-three went on to have a double mastectomy as a genetic mutation raised her chances of developing breast cancer.
