Kelly Osbourne has another incentive to move to New York - she's been offered a starring role in the Broadway production of HAIRSPRAY.

The reality TV star - daughter of legendary rocker Ozzy and his wife SHARON - is being lined up to take the lead part of TRACY TURNBLAD in the musical.

Sharon confirmed the news in an interview with newspaper the NEW YORK POST.

Last week (ends14JAN05) Kelly revealed her desire to set up home in New York: "There's a sense of independence there. It's halfway between LA and England, so you get a mixture of both types of people."
