Sharon Osbourne has revealed that she checked into a treatment facility after suffering from a secret "breakdown" last year.

The X Factor judge, 63, told US TV show The Talk, which she co-hosts, that her family "put me into a facility".

"It's very weird when you suffer from a bad depression... I had a complete and utter breakdown," the star said.

"I woke up in Cedars-Sinai hospital and for probably three days I knew nothing. I couldn't think. I couldn't talk. I could do nothing. My brain just shut down on me.

"It's hard enough surviving in this world anyway... I was doing too much of everything, thinking I'm a superwoman, 'I'm so strong. I can handle this, I can handle that'. My brain just totally fused."

She said: "I just couldn't cope with anything and my family put me into a facility. I found, for me, that group therapy was the best thing that I could do."

Her comments come after Osbourne and Black Sabbath star husband Ozzy reunited after the rocker's alleged affair.

In August, Ozzy revealed he was undergoing ''intense therapy'' for a ''sex addiction'' that nearly resulted in the disintegration of his marriage .

She told The Talk: "People out there, I want you to realise there is so much help out there. It's nothing to be ashamed about."
