Jack Osbourne wishes he had been staying at his parent's English country mansion when they were burgled last year (NOV04) - his insomnia could have stopped the intruders.

SHARON and husband Ozzy were sleeping when a slender man, wearing a ski mask and dark clothes, broke into their country mansion in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire in the middle of the night and stole $3.8 million (GBP2 million) worth of jewellery.

Jack says, "I was pretty angry because you feel violated. If I was there I'd have been awake when it was going on - I don't usually go to bed until five or six - and I keep thinking I could have changed it."
