OZZY OSBOURNE has threatened to sue British comedian Harry Enfield over his new TV show, which the former BLACK SABBATH singer claims is based on The Osbournes.
Enfield is reported to have received a letter from solicitors acting on behalf of Ozzy, threatening to sue over his forthcoming program Celeb.
Celeb revolves around an aging rock star, determined not to relinquish his traditional indulgent habits. However, Enfield claims he has never even seen The Osbournes.
He explained: "I haven't watched a single Osbourne program. They're so snooty New York lawyers, aren't they? Stupid little idiots."
Enfield insists the show is based on a Private Eye cartoon strip which first appeared in the satirical magazine in 1987.
Enfield's new character is based on fading pop star Gary Bloke, who is too rich to worry if his records sell but still wants to be a celebrity.
A spokesman for show's producers insisted: "We did get a letter from Ozzy Osbourne's lawyers. We see these claims as totally unfounded and spurious and that is how we responded to them."
