Ozzy Osbourne is refusing to move back to UK unless he's allowed to take his dogs with him.

The Black Sabbath star and his wife Sharon have been living in the US for many years and they are currently plotting a return to their home country but Ozzy is adamant he won't be going anywhere without his beloved pets.

Speaking on 'The Osbournes' podcast in a preview obtained by DailyMail.com, the 74-year-old rocker exclaimed: "In going back to England, I'm going to [saying to] Sharon: 'I ain't going nowhere without these f****** dogs'."

His son Jack then asked for an update on the planned move and Sharon explained it has been delayed because renovations at their home in Buckinghamshire aren't finished yet. When Jack then asked if they still plan to move when the house is done, Ozzy then interjected saying: "I'm not saying a word. Your mum is going to be very lonely."

The pair are believed to be planning to document their move in a reality TV show for the BBC.

In a previous episode of the podcast, Ozzy revealed the couple has been planning the move for four years and Sharon gave her reason for wanting to relocate, saying: "This is what I've learned - you can't plan anything. I just feel that I wanna go home. I wanna give your father [Ozzy] a chance to live his life. We can do more what we want more in England than we can do here."

They previously dismissed speculation they had planned the move because of Ozzy's recent health troubles - including his diagnosis with Parkinson's disease - and instead declared they just wanted to go home.

Ozzy also revealed he's fed up with the levels of gun violence in America in recent years, telling the Observer newspaper: "Everything’s f****** ridiculous here [in America]. I’m fed up with people getting killed every day. God knows how many people have been shot in school shootings. And there was that mass shooting in Vegas at that concert … It’s f****** crazy.

"I don’t want to die in America. I don’t want to be buried in fucking Forest Lawn [cemetery in Los Angeles]. I’m English. I want to be back … It’s time for me to come home."
