Ozzy also confessed that he has been left “bored stiff” after doctor’s placed him on bed rest when he damaged the vertebrae in his neck following an accident.

In the short clip, which is laden with swear words, Ozzy explains: “I’m just here to give you an update on my progression with this f***ing neck thing that I have got.

“As you probably know, or may not know, at the beginning of this year I had a bad fall and screwed all of the vertebrae in my neck and had to have surgery.”

As photos of his subsequent x-ray flash up, the star continues: “I’ve got more nuts and bolts in my neck now than my car.

“I’m not dying, I am recovering, it’s just taking a little longer than everyone thought it would.

“I am bored stiff being stuck on a f***ing bed all day, I can’t wait to get my a** up and get going again, but you’re just going to have to be a bit more patient.

“I’ve postponed my European tour because I am not ready – I am not retiring, I’ve still got gigs to do.

“When I do come back on the American tour I am going to be 100% ready to come out and knock your f***ing socks off.”
