Sharon Osbourne, 62, has admitted that she 's terrified that she will die from Alzheimer's disease, same illness that took the life of her father 7 years ago.

The 'The Talk' star revealed she found out that she has two of the four genes responsible for developing the debilitating disease after she and husband, Ozzy Osbourne underwent a genome test.

'Ozzy and I had these tests done at a university in England, and the results took three months to come back,' Sharon said.

'They test every single cell, chromosome and gene in your body; it's like a DNA test but a million times more sophisticated'

'The results show I have two of the four genes that give it to you. They're not the two major genes, but they're still there and I have them.' She added:

According to UK's DailyMail, the former 'X Factor' judge's music mogul father Don Arden died aged 81 in 2007 after battling the devastating form of dementia and Sharon - who has children Kelly, Jack and Aimee with Ozzy - admits she feels powerless in stopping the same from happening to her.

Emphasizing how dangerous the Alzheimer's disease is, Sharon told the Daily Mirror: 'It is the most soul-destroying disease. To see someone you love come down with it... it's wicked, it really is. There is nothing I can do to prevent it, nothing. People say take cod liver oil and do puzzles and thing, but then I look at people diagnosed with dementia.'
