Reality TV stars SHARON and Kelly Osbourne were forced to attend
Wednesday's (09FEB05) Brit Awards without husband and father OZZY - because the
ceremony was laden with free alcohol.
The former Black Sabbath rocker is currently sober after a long battle
with drink and drugs, and couldn't face being surrounded by bottles of booze
and drunken celebrities.
Organisers of the 25th annual ceremony have laid on 6,000 bottles of
champagne and 10,000 bottles of wine for the star guests, after an alcohol-ban
in 2003 proved for a boring awards.
Ozzy explains, "I don't drink so all the flowing wine is no fun. I haven't
touched alcohol for ten months."
