Website set up in collaboration with Gala Bingo, the UK's largest online bingo site.
Sharon Osbourne, television celebrity and wife of famous rocker Ozzy Osborne, has launched her own online bingo site, Sharonsbingo.com.
The Website was set up in collaboration with Gala Bingo, which claims 40% of the market share for online bingo in Britain, with over six million members.
"I'm so excited to have my very own bingo site," said Osbourne. "The site has been created with my fans in mind, which players will hopefully love."
The site, which features a pink background and a portrait of Osbourne with one of her many dogs on the home page, offers themed games such as Footballer's Wags, Pharaoh's Chamber, A Girl's Night Out and one named simply "Sharon Osbourne."
"We're delighted that Sharon Osbourne has decided to extend her relationship with us by launching her own bingo Website," said Clive Cottrell of the Gala Coral Group. "Sharon has proved immensely popular with our customers over the past two years so it seems a natural progression for her to have a dedicated Website."
Osbourne has been a long time partner of Gala Coral, featuring in TV ads promoting the company's online bingo site and appearing on its television channel.
She gained celebrity status as one of the stars of the TV reality show, The Osbournes, which followed her family's daily life. She was also the host of her own short-lived television talk show, The Sharon Osbourne Show, in 2003.
The Osbournes' ties with online gambling are nothing new. Microgaming has launched a video slot machine game based on The Osbournes.
