News Image Sharon Osbourne appears to have lost her battle with the bulge, with pictures showing her to have gained weight recently.

The outspoken matriarch of the Osbourne family has previously had a number of cosmetic surgery procedures, including liposuction and body contouring, the Daily Mail reports.

In the past, Sharon had a gastric band fitted to help her with a weight problem, which promptly led her to go from a size 22 to a 10.

A reporter at the Daily Mail wrote: "The former X Factor judge admitted to spending £120,000 on plastic surgery in the past, including stomach stapling, a face lift and breast enhancement."

Recently, Sharon got into some trouble after she threw a drink over a contestant on a show in the US, after she claimed all Mrs Osbourne was famous for was for managing a "brain-dead rock star".

The family are currently filming a new programme, The Osbourne Show, in the US.
