Reality TV star Jack Osbourne is giving up showbiz to become a firefighter in New York.

Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne's youngest child is fed-up with the selfish attitude prevalent in the entertainment industry and wants to help other people instead.

Osbourne, 19, explains, "I'm enrolling on a firefighting course this summer in New York. I'm serious. It's something I've always thought about but now is definitely the time to do it.

"I think it would be really cool. Those guys do a tough job and I admire that. Since 9/11 I think people appreciate them more.

"Plus you get to wear those cool uniforms that all the chicks dig. I'm joking about that but I do want to do it - definitely. I'm looking into how to enrol now.

"I definitely have a great life. But I'd like to do something for other people, for a change."
