Kelly Osbourne has slammed 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 26-year-old star - who came third alongside professional partner Louis van Amstel in the US version of the BBC One show - thinks 'Strictly' looks like a cheaper copy of 'Dancing with the Stars'.
She said: "I'm sorry, but 'Strictly Come Dancing' looks like a budget version of the American show. In America they really go all out with the costumes and here, without wishing to sound disrespectful, it looks like they've just put some odds and ends together."
However, 'Strictly' wasn't the only UK show to receive criticism from the former TV star, who starred alongside her Black Sabbath rocker father Ozzy Osbourne, former 'X Factor' judge mother Sharon, and 'Adrenaline Junkie' star brother Jack, in reality programme 'The Osbournes'.
Kelly deemed British shows "depressing", saying she prefers to "escape" when she watches TV.
She added to The Sun newspaper: "All the sitcoms and soaps here are so depressing. You guys do not make TV shows about ridiculously good-looking women who are living the high life - like 'Desperate Housewives'.
"It's always depressing sitcoms about people in council flats. Sometimes I just want to turn on the TV and escape. That's one of the magical things about TV. Why would you want to sit there and go through all the daily problems of real life?"
