Ozzy Osbourne has admitted to being camera-shy following his stint on reality show The Osbournes.

The rocker says being filmed 24/7 started to grate on him:

"I didn't like being on TV. My ego did for five minutes, but then it got old very quick. Be careful what you experiment with because sometimes it takes off."

The 61-year-old admitted to letting his inhibitions get the better of him:

"I began to get camera shy. When you have a camera crew living in your house all the time it takes its toll."

And Ozzy was quick to rubbish rumours that Johnny Depp is to play him in a movie:

"I want to get an English person because I'm not American. I'd like to get a guy from Birmingham you know, an unknown actor."

Ozzy Osbourne's latest album Scream is available to buy from Monday 21st June.
