Sharon Osbourne reveals she punched Piers Morgan in the face on lunch date – and husband Ozzy forced her to apologise


SHARON Osbourne has revealed she once punched Piers Morgan in the face during a lunch date.

The pair have known each other for 20 years, with Sharon recently defending the former Good Morning Britain star on US chat show The Talk.

However, the two were previously embroiled in an argument after things got physical over lunch.

She told the Mail's You magazine: "We argue like hell; we had a punch-up once."

Sharon went on to explain her rocker husband Ozzy forced her to apologise.

The TV continued: "I slapped him in Mr Chow’s [the high-end Chinese restaurant in Knightsbridge].

"Then I go home and Ozzy, goes, 'Call him and apologise. Do it right now.'

"That was years ago. He’ll be huffy with me for a day and then he talks to me. We don’t agree about lots of things."

Sharon previously made the decision to quit The Talk after having an on-air fight with co-host Sheryl Underwood.

During the verbal fight, Sharon told her co-hosts: "Why is it that because I supported a longtime friend and work colleague for years, people go ‘well you must be racist because he’s racist.’ 

"No. I support his freedom of speech. I’m not racist and neither is Piers racist.

"What have I ever said about anybody that’s racist? It’s not within me. It’s not in my soul."

A source told The Sun following the argument that both sides initially 'refused to apologise,' though Sharon later did issue an apology on her Instagram page following the argument.
