Ozzy Osbourne is set to move back to the UK to save his marriage to Sharon.

The couple - who have been married for 31 years - have had their arguments recently stemming from the Black Sabbath rocker's drink and drug abuse, but according to reports Sharon is willing to give him another chance if he leaves Los Angeles with her.

With the 60-year-old star set to return as a judge on 'The X Factor' UK later this year, it seems the best chance of saving their relationship is a return to their homeland.

An insider told the Sunday People newspaper: ''Ozzy loves living in LA but he knows that if he doesn't return to England with Sharon it could be disastrous for their relationship.

''By supporting Sharon in the UK it means they can work through their problems and she can help him with his issues.''

The pair will be living in their mansion in Buckinghamshire, south east England and escaping to the ''countryside'' could be what their marriage needs.

The source added: ''They will be staying at their house in Buckinghamshire which is in the countryside and very peaceful, like a haven.

''This is something they need to do for each other. LA is where all the problems began so they feel it will be good to live in the UK together.''
