Backstage at this year's O2 Silver Clef Awards, Sharon told how the search is on for a youngster to play the legendary Black Sabbath frontman.

Names of top Hollywood stars such as Johnny Depp have already been linked to the role.

But Sharon said: "We're looking for an unknown because I think that when an actor is portraying someone who's alive it's very, very tough.

"We're looking for a young 18-year-old."

Asked if daughter Kelly would play her in the movie, she said: "She'll have to audition for it."
