Kelly Osbourne has been ordered not to speak for two weeks.

The 'Fashion Police' co-star has announced she's been put on vocal rest for two weeks after posting a close-up photograph of her throat on her Instagram page.

She accompanied the photograph with the message: ''#warning this is disgusting! How much do my vocal cords (sic) look like a #v*****? According to my DR I have pre vocal nodes and am on vocal rest for the next 2 weeks!''

The 29-year-old then added: ''That's worse than prison for me!''

It's not been a good year so far for Kelly in regards to her health.

The former reality star sprained her ankle in February and also suffered a seizure the following month.

Her fans have offered support and also responded to her tongue-in-cheek comment about her throat.

One posted: ''Omg, my coffee almost went spewing all over when I read your comment. Hilarious!''

While another added: ''Get well Kell!!''

The star posted another status about an hour later, writing, ''In bed watching #Jawbreaker'', before reminiscing about her childhood and posting an adorable shot of her in a fairy outfit.

She wrote: ''Since the holiday season is kicking off I thought I would get into the spirit of it all! This is me aged 3 all I wanted for Christmas was to be a fairy princess!''
