LONG before Keeping Up With The Kardashians, reality TV stars across the globe were captivated by The Osbourne family.
Rockstar Ozzy and telly judge wife Sharon – as well as their large brood of children – they had Hollywood hooked with their outrageous family.
The Osbournes took the lead in their own MTV series, with their star kids Kelly and Jack often taking centre stage in the programme.
The insightful show, much like the now much-loved KUWTK, followed the daily life of the family from 2002 for three years.
It quickly grew to the most-viewed series ever on the music channel, as Black Sabbath star Ozzy kept fans entertained with his hilarious antics.
While audiences became familiar with the family from the show, others were left questioning what happened to the rest of the Osbourne clan.
Not only was eldest daughter Aimee rarely seen, but Ozzy's children from his first marriage to Thelma Riley and a son named Elliot were also missing.
Here we look back at where the forgotten Osbourne kids' lives are now from bankruptcy to Hollywood fame and a hit music career.
Eldest child Aimee wasn't shown on MTV show The Osbournes in the early naughties over fears she would be typecast in the future.
The actress and singer admitted she was uncomfortable with how her family were portrayed on TV – and about what was shown to viewers.
Aimee, 38, revealed that despite what appearances may have shown, there was a disunity between the family as they didn't spend much time together.
"I wouldn't say there is an ease between us, but there is an acceptance," she said, before revealing: "Do we socialise? No."
While Aimee shunned the show, she still went on to follow in her father's footsteps with hopes of becoming a musician.
In 2010, she began recording and releasing music – a far cry from her dad's heavy metal background – with her band ARO.
The band went quiet in 2016, and didn't release another single until 2020 when Shared Something With the Night was written.
Aimee has performed all over the world with the band, and compares the live experiences as like being "at Disneyland".
Jessica Starshine Osbourne
Jessica is Ozzy Osbourne's eldest daughter – who he shares with his former wife Thelma – and was born in Grimsby in 1972.
While she didn't feature in The Osbournes, she was mentioned in passing in one episode which shocked viewers at the time.
In the episode -Smells Like Teen Spirit – Ozzy recieved the news that Jessica had given birth to a baby girl, making him a grandfather for the first time.
Mum-of-three Jessica, 49, has managed to keep most of her life away from the spotlight despite working in costume and wardrobe for films.
She's also been a makeup designer in Hollywood as well as a writer and director of her own films – including short film Yellowville.
She went on to star in film Phone Friends and Between Both in 2006, and You Better Call Saul more recently in 2015.
Despite rumours often circulating that Jessica has been in a long-term relationship for over a decade, she has never given away any details.
Ozzy's son Louis from his first marriage is rarely in the spotlight, but he did appear in the first series of the MTV show.
Born in Birmingham in 1975 – the DJ featured in The Osbournes' Christmas special episode as well as episodes Puss and Get Stuffed.
Louis already worked as a DJ in the 90s in Ibiza and across America before his TV fame, but found himself in trouble later on in life.
Louis ended up facing financial problems and filed for bankruptcy – leaving him with none of the fortune he had amounted from his career.
He now lives in a modest £250,000 house with his actress wife Louise, and enjoys a quiet family life, away from the rest of the Osbourne clan.
Louis once said of his broken family dynamic: "I don’t travel half as much as I used to and they are in America. "
"There is more chance of us seeing each other in a random New York hotel than us all getting round a table for a Sunday lunch. We meet on special occasions.
He added: "Dad usually calls on a Sunday afternoon for a catch up and when he comes over to the UK we take the kids down (to his home in Buckinghamshire). Dad is great, very much a doting grandad."
Elliot is not a blood relative to the Osbourne clan – but he was adopted by Ozzy from his previous marriage to Thelma Mayfair.
Ozzy and Thelma met as his group Black Sabbath were taking off, and they were married shortly after in 1971.
But Thelma already had Elliot, then five, from a previous marriage – and Ozzy opted to adopt the young boy as his own.
Elliot never featured on the MTV show and was rarely mentioned throughout the series – keeping his life private.
Currently, he is said to be working as an actor and has a net worth, according to Washington Independent, of around $600,000.
