Ex-hellraiser Ozzy Osbourne is terrified the new 25 hour drinking laws in Britain will create a nation of alcoholics.

Osbourne recalls with disgust how he "wet the bed" nightly thanks to his addiction to alcohol - and he urges the public to drink responsibly or risk a booze-induced death.

He says, "I was wetting the bed every night. I just got fed up with it.

"Alcoholism is a disease. On the day (soccer star) GEORGE (BEST) died, 5000 other people in England died of the same problem.

"I'm concerned about the 24-hour drinking laws. How many more alcoholics will that create?"
