The star’s news comes just days after his sister Kelly shared that she recently relapsed after four years of sobriety.

The TV personality gave up drugs and alcohol in 2017 and focused on rehabilitation with help from her family.

She shared the news with her Instagram followers in a series of candid videos.

"I relapsed,” said the 36-year-old. “I'm not proud of it but I am back on track and I will be doing a podcast this week where I tell everyone about what's going on and what happened.

"I just want to let you know that I am sober today and I'm going to be sober tomorrow but I've learnt it truly is just one day at a time and I just wanted to tell you guys the truth because I never ever want to lie to you.”

Jack and Kelly found fame alongside their parents Ozzy and Sharon on their hit reality show The Osbournes.
