NEW YORK – Ozzy Osbourne is back home after injuring himself in an all-terrain vehicle accident in England more than a month ago.

His wife, Sharon Osbourne, told her talk-show audience during the episode she taped Thursday in Los Angeles that her husband had returned to their house in Beverly Hills, Calif., the previous night.

“I am so happy he’s home I can’t begin to tell you, but my poor husband is in so much agony, still in so much pain, he couldn’t sleep all night and the one thing is … he’s got this metal rod … instead of a collarbone now,” she said during “The Sharon Osbourne Show” airing Jan. 22.

“I am just so happy that he’s home ’cause all the time I … felt so lonely, like I’ve lost something,” she added. “You know that feeling when you know you’ve lost something and what is it? It’s like, ‘Oh, it’s my husband!'”

The 55-year-old metal star stopped breathing twice and was in a coma for eight days after the Dec. 8 crash.

He fractured his collarbone, eight ribs and a neck vertebra when the 600-pound vehicle he was riding flipped and landed on top of him at his estate in Buckinghamshire, southern England. He spent a week on a ventilator.
