The 68-year-old star had been self isolating after testing positive for the respiratory illness earlier this month, and she was delighted to be back with her family in time for Christmas.

Sharing a candid photo of husband Ozzy Osbourne wearing a mask on the sofa alongside five puppies, she wrote: "Got the ok to go home after two negative test results and look at the joy waiting for me!

"So grateful to be home for the holidays and thank you all so much for your love and support...

"Stay safe and wishing you the happiest of holidays".

Her comments come almost 10 days after she revealed she had tested positive for coronavirus, and was recuperating away from her husband.

She tweeted: “I wanted to share I’ve tested positive for Covid 19. After a brief hospitalization, I’m now recuperating at a location away from Ozzy (who has tested negative) while The Talk is on scheduled hiatus. Everyone please stay safe and healthy. (sic)"

Last week, Sharon's fellow 'The Talk' host Carrie Ann Inaba tested positive for coronavirus.

She wrote: "Hey Everyone, I have tested positive for COVID 19. I’m home with some symptoms and will be sequestering as per the CDC guidelines, resting and taking care of myself. (Swipe to hear the whole video).

“I have been in a very safe environment following all the guidelines and safety protocols and it still found it’s way to me. So, this is a friendly reminder to be extra careful this holiday season.“Wear your masks, socially and physically keep your distance, and wash your hands. Take care everyone. And I’ll keep you updated on my journey. (sic)”

n a series of videos she ran through her symptoms, which included “a fever, a bad cough, and lots of aches and pains”.

She said in one clip: “I have a fever, a bad cough, and lots of aches and pains. I just wanted to remind you all to stay vigilant because I am following all the protocols and we have so many strict protocols in place and even then I caught it. Just be extra extra careful, ok? Because you don’t want this.”

As a result, Carrie Ann missed the final week of recordings of the show, which is now on hiatus for the festive period.
