Reality TV family The Osbournes are finding it so difficult to sell their Los Angeles mansion they are considering turning it into a tourist attraction.

Wildman rocker Ozzy Osbourne and his wife SHARON have been trying to sell the $11 million (GBP6 million) property for months so they can move to a more private Beverly Hills house.

But the Osbournes are finding it hard to convince prospective buyers to put up with all the fans that gather outside the property's gates.

So now Sharon has had the idea of opening the house to tourists as so many visitors come to have a look anyway.

A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Sharon and Ozzy are becoming very frustrated that they cannot sell their house.

"Fans are always turning up outside to have a look around and the place has become a regular stop on Los Angeles tourist trips.

"Sharon is now desperate to vacate as soon as possible. She believes that if the house doesn't sell in the next month she and Ozzy will open it as an Osbournes attraction.

"It could be a money-spinner given the number of people who already show up for a gawp and knock at the door."
