Ozzy and Jack Osbourne’s show for the History channel will launch in July.

The 10-episode series Ozzy & Jack’s World Detour premieres on History in North America at 10pm on July 27 and will feature the father and son duo travelling the world and exploring the history behind some of the most famous sites on the planet.

Talking about the show last year, Ozzy said: “Jack and I are doing a thing for the History Channel – a father-and-son spoof on history.

“We went to Stonehenge and met a guy who thinks he’s the fucking reincarnation of King Arthur. We went to Bletchley Park to see the machine used to break the code.

“We’re going to Mount Rushmore, to the abandoned silos where America used to have their Minuteman missiles.

“It’s educational for me, actually – history with an Osbourne slant.”

Sharon Osbourne confirmed last week that she and Ozzy had split after 33 years of marriage. The Black Sabbath frontman denied rumours he’d started using drugs and alcohol again.

Sabbath’s The End world tour continues next month, while it was recently announced that Ozzfest and Knotfest would join forces this year.
