UK - Sharon Osbourne certainly knows how to keep herself busy. The rock matriarch is not only set to star in a national advertising campaign for retail chain Asda she has also let it be known that The House of Commons is where she would like to sit.
Speaking to tabloid newspaper the Daily Star the 52-year-old explained it was part of a new TV show she is writing: "It will show me running to be a local MP, it will be in London, but I don't know for sure which borough yet because I am still thinking about it.
"I will be an independent candidate and I am very excited about it because it is something so different."
Meantime she will appear in a series of 30 second ads for the food giant Asda.
Asda's marketing director said: "Sharon is a strong woman, a real-life mum and our customers relate to her because she believes in the things mums stand for - caring, providing and coping."
So UK readers can expect to see Mrs. Osbourne on a screen and maybe looking for your vote very soon.
