Rocker Ozzy Osbourne and his manager wife SHARON are to join forces for MTV once again - by hosting the network's Australian VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS in Sydney next March (05).

The couple - who have recently confirmed they will not be allowing MTV cameras to film another series of their hit reality show THE OSBOURNES - will also be accompanied by their famous children JACK and KELLY when they travel down under for the prize-giving event.

However, former BLACK SABBATH star Osbourne admits he's concerned about the 23-hour flight.

He says, "Getting to Australia from Pom-land (England) is like a mission to the moon, but we're going to have some fun, even if there are too many awards shows today."
