Sharon Osbourne's bond with her mother was so weak she wasn't upset when she died five years ago.

The Osbournes reality TV star, 51, is close to her three children but always felt alienated from her mother HOPE, who died in 1999 without meeting AIMEE, KELLY or Jack Osbourne.

Sharon says, "I cannot say there's a sadness, because I didn't really love my mother. There was never that bond between us.

"If I ever hurt myself as a child, I'd never run to her for a hug to make it better.

"I don't think she did anything wrong, and it's very hard to admit it but I simply didn't like her."
