Watch: Sharon Osbourne reveals why she ditched her grey hair

Sharon Osbourne has gone back to her iconic red hair after sporting a silver style for the past eight months.

The 68-year-old showed off the restored red while on her US show The Talk, explaining she wanted a change after thinking she bore resemblance to 'Grandma Clampett' from TV series The Beverly Hillbillies.

"I don't know, I just caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and I was like 'Nah, you look like Grandma Clampett and then I thought 'Nah, I'm changing it back'," she said of the reasons behind the change.

She added "one quick look" was all it took and that the decision also came about because of her recent birthday on 9 October, reiterating that she believed she looked like the character made famous by actor Irene Ryan.

Posting footage of herself on the show to Instagram, Osbourne captioned: "Back To Red ~ What color should I try next? 🌈."

It appears as though the mother-of-three may have been working herself back up to a more colourful look as she has been sporting soft pink tresses recently.

Celebrity colourist Jack Martin previously explained she had initially ditched the red because she had grown "very tired" of trying to maintain the shade after colouring her hair a dark vibrant red once a week for the past 18 years.

Another great day in my career welcoming the most beautiful and elegant talk show host and entertainer @sharonosbourne for a complete transformation. Sharon has 100% white hair and she was coloring her hair once a week dark vibrant red for the past 18 years. she explained to me that she wanted to do this transformation long time ago but every time she attempts it ends up with a disaster. Sharon was very tired of coloring her hair once a week and she was obligated to since she is on tv almost every day hosting her popular tv show @thetalkcbs . I didn’t promise Sharen anything but I told her I will try my best, it took me a total of 8 hours from start to finish to get her to a platinum blonde so she doesn’t have to be committed to coloring her hair once a week anymore. I had great time spending my day off with this gorgeous, humble, and sweet soul. ____________________________________________ Products used in this transformation.
