January 19, 2005 is reporting that Sharon Osbourne wants to be a British MP (Member of Parliament) — and is going to make a TV show about her stand for Parliament.

The 52-year-old, who is married to Ozzy Osbourne, told the Daily Star that she will try and win a seat in London as an independent candidate.

The news comes as the mother-of-three is today revealed as the new face of supermarket chain Asda.

"I'm in the middle of writing a new TV show," Sharon told the newspaper.

"It will show me running to be a local MP, it will be in London, but I don't know for sure which borough yet because I am still thinking about it.

"I will be an independent candidate and I am very excited about it because it is something so different."

Before she embarks on her political career, however, Sharon will join a number of other mums talking about what it is like being a modern parent in a new advertising campaign for Asda, Mums In A Million.

In the first of up to six 30-second ads, Sharon will be visiting a local store, checking produce and talking to staff.

"I remember my kids saying can we go to Asda because they cook better than you?" she said.

Chris Pilling, Asda's marketing director, said: "There was only ever one choice for the campaign.

"Sharon is a strong woman, a real-life mum and our customers relate to her because she believes in the things mums stand for — caring, providing and coping."
