It’s been two decades since the iconic reality show starring the rock ‘n’ roll family first hit our television screens.

And BBC bosses confirmed The Osbourne’s return to reality TV on Thursday, as the family prepare to document their “new life in the UK” with a “funny, moving and honest” new series.

Ozzy Osbourne, 73, announced his intention to return to the UK with his wife Sharon, 69, earlier this week because he “doesn’t want to die in a crazy America”.

The family will move to their 120-year-old Grade II listed Buckinghamshire stilt welders’ home after 25 years in Beverly Hills.

Documentary manager Clare Sillery told MailOnline: “Twenty years ago the Osbournes left Britain to live in LA. Now they are going “home to roost,” to their family home, much as they left it all those years ago.

“In this new series, our audience will be able to follow the family as they settle into their new life in a village in Buckinghamshire…it promises to be a funny, moving and honest insight into their new life in the UK. ”
