Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne discuss the singer's secret relapse into addiction

Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Live" rolls out the red carpet for one of the most-recognizable couples in all of television, as the always-entertaining Ozzy Osbourne and Sharon Osbourne join the primetime program for an exclusive, face to face interview.

Tonight's conversation serves as a reunion of sorts for Piers Morgan and his female guest, as the two Brits worked together for five years as judges on the NBC television program "America's Got Talent."

For Ozzy, however, the interview is an opportunity to offer some insight, and engage in some soul-searching, on the heels of a recent and recurring battle with addiction.

Morgan read aloud some thoughts Ozzy shared that were 'extraordinarily powerful and honest.' Ozzy said:

"It's like water drips from the tap and you go 'F it' for no reason at all, you suddenly think I'll fancy a drink and your head will say 'let yourself have one.' The next thing you know, you're scraping yourself off the garage floor three days later. It's like having a haunted head. You've got these voices saying 'don't worry about it, Ozzy, anyone would have a drink if their album went to number one in all these countries.' You're doing a deal with the devil. It's a disease of the mind and body and you can't control it."

After listening, the "Black Sabbath" front man admits to the veracity of his own statement:

"That's exactly right," he tells Morgan. "The last thing I want to do is break my wife's heart. I love her."

Turning to Osbourne's aforementioned wife, the British television presenter asks her to reveal intimate details of the couple's relationship.

"I was really shocked, I'll be honest with you. And I didn't like seeing how upset you were, Sharon. Obviously, you were devastated. What did you feel when you found out what Ozzy had been secretly, because it was behind your back," he asked. "Did you fear that this might end the marriage?"

Using words like "hurt" and bruised" Sharon Osbourne tells Morgan that her husbands secrecy wrought a bevy of unfriendly feelings:

"Ozzy had been drinking for a year and a half and I never knew. And it also kicked me in the ass, because I'm like 'well, what kind of marriage do I have that I don't know that this is going on,'" she details as part of Wednesday's exclusive interview. "I'm like, 'well, it's not just him, it's me, too.' And that takes time. It takes time to actually take all of that in, because the first thing you do is it's like 'you, it's you, it's you,' and then you go, 'now hold on a minute.'"

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's chat with the Osbourne's, then tune in at 9 for the full interview as Ozzy reveals how he felt when Sharon learned of his relapse, and whether or not he was worried the couple was headed for divorce.
