The controversial TV personality is thought to be suffering from “extreme exhaustion”, and is taking a month out to recuperate, on doctors’ orders.

A representative for Sharon told People magazine that she “collapsed from mental and physical fatigue”, adding: “Sharon has been advised and has agreed to take a month hiatus to recover fully from these recent events.

“Sharon would like to thank everyone at ‘The Talk’ for granting her this time off and to all friends, family and others for their incredible support.”

It’s thought that Sharon’s collapse was brought on by exhaustion, from returning to work too quickly after being hospitalised earlier this year.

Back in March, she contracted pneumonia after undergoing surgery for a hernia, as revealed by her daughter Kelly Osbourne, who filled in for her as a temporary replacement on ‘The Talk’.

Following her collapse, Sharon has been active on her Twitter page, sharing some old photos with her daughter, Kelly, and husband, Ozzy Osbourne.

In addition to her work in the US, last summer Sharon was announced as a new member of the ‘Loose Women’ panel here in the UK, making several appearances on the lunchtime show.

While appearing on the show, Sharon announced that a new series of ‘The Osbournes’ was in production with VH1, though the channel confirmed last month that this was no longer going ahead.

They said in a statement: “We wish we could have worked it out, but it just didn't come together for us. The family has been absolutely lovely and we wish them the best. We'd love to figure out a way to work with them at some point in the future.”
