“It’s been terribly challenging for us,” he told Good Morning America.

“I did my last show New Year’s Eve at The Forum. Then I had a bad fall. I had to have surgery on my neck, which screwed all my nerves.

“A year ago next month I was in a shocking state. I’m on a host of medication, mainly from surgery.

“I’ve got numbness down this arm from surgery, my legs feel like they’re going cold, I don’t know if that’s from the Parkinson’s.”

Osbourne has previously batted off rumours he had Parkinson’s, but said he wanted to “own up” to his condition for the sake of his fans.

His wife, Sharon Osbourne, said it is “not a death sentence by any stretch of the imagination”.

However, she said the neurodegenerative disease, which has no cure, affects “certain nerves in your body”.
