Ozzy Osbourne had MTV censors reaching for their panic buttons yesterday (21MAR05), when he cheekily gave TOTAL REQUEST LIVE presenter DAMIAN FAHEY the finger while chatting about working with MUPPET MISS PIGGY.

The rocker teamed up with the puppet pig for the video of BORN TO BE WILD and admitted it wasn't difficult performing with the Muppets diva - because she really was just someone's hand.

He then flipped the bird, stating, "Pretend that's Miss Piggy."

As the young TRL audience giggled, the live show's censors quickly diverted to street shots outside the programme's New York headquarters.

Ozzy appeared on the show to promote his new box set and join wife SHARON OSBOURNE in planting their hands in cement for TRL's Touch of Fame.

The couple was also presented with a bat-shaped cake - to mark the finale of their hit reality show The Osbournes, which aired last night (21MAR05).
