The final episode of reality show The Osbournes is to be shown today.
The final instalment on MTV marks the end of the series, first screened in the UK in May 2002.
Every episode of the fourth series will be screened from 17:30 BST, culminating in the closing episode at 22:00 BST.
The final episode, Black Sabbath, is a themed night dedicated to the family - Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly. The Osbournes will be seen talking about their experiences with US psychologist Dr Phil McGraw.
"After the years the MTV cameras became part of the family, documenting what is possibly the most dramatic year we have had," said Sharon Osbourne.
"Though it was rough sometimes, we are truly blessed to have had this amazing experience."
Over the past few months, the Osbournes have had 2 million of jewellery stolen in a burglary at their Buckinghamshire mansion, a fire at their home, and oldest daughter Aimee, who does not appear on the show, was rushed to the US for treatment after a breast cancer scare.
The Osbournes are reported to be considering placing their gothic California home on the market, since the children have now moved out.
"It's not like coming home," said Sharon. "Everybody knows where we sleep. Everybody knows what our bed is like. It would be nice to have something that's kind of more ours than the world's."
Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy had been one of the wildest men in rock for 30 years when MTV sent their cameras into his house for a fly-on-the-wall docu-soap about the star and his bizarre family.
