Sharon Osbourne has confessed she doesn't think she will ever be able to get her eating problems fully under control
Sharon Osbourne doesn't think she'll ever get her eating under control.
The outspoken star - who has previously battled bulimia - says she will always be haunted by her food issues and still overeats, although she tries to hide it from her family.
She said: "Eating is my Achilles heel. I'm addicted to food and every day I wake up and think, 'Today is the day that I'm not going to overeat.' But that's my thing in life, and I'm overweight, I am, but.
"I still have my big binges. Just the other weekend I was hiding from Kelly in the cupboard eating Maltesers; I can eat things in ridiculous amounts. And then I have to hide the wrappers because I know my other daughter Aimee will find them."
Sharon knows her family - husband Ozzy, son Jack and Kelly and Aimee - get upset but she doesn't think she can be helped.
She said in an interview with Glamour magazine: "Ozzy worries because of my health, but it's my kids who get really upset. For example, Aimee wouldn't even talk to me the other night because she was so upset about what I was eating.
"But nothing works for me. I have a very big self-destructive streak. Everybody has something, but I do everything to extremes."
