Avon Gorge climber Jack Osbourne diagnosed with multiple sclerosis
Adrenaline junkie and reality TV star Jack Osbourne, who learned how to climb in the Avon Gorge, has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).
The son of ex-Black Sabbath frontman Ozzy and former X factor judge Sharon was diagnosed from tests taken when he lost 60% vision in his right eye earlier this year.
The 26-year-old new dad has been in the spotlight since he and his family starred in a worldwide hit reality TV show, The Osbournes, which originally aired on MTV between 2002 and 2005.
In the years that followed he turned his hand to adventure sports, embarking on the world's biggest bungee jump, an ultra-marathon through the Sahara Desert and white-water kayaking.

Jack’s adrenaline-fuelled ascents began in Bristol, where he learned how to climb in the Avon Gorge. There he took on its many cliffs, which include a 50-metre drop.
He is reported to have taken part in The Rat Race Urban Adventure, where the country’s cities – including Bristol - are transformed into urban assault courses for the weekend. Participants compete alongside elite adventure sport athletes, climbing, abseiling, mountain biking, kayaking and navigating.
Jack Osbourne’s diagnosis comes just two weeks after the birth of his daughter Pearl Clementine, with fiancée Lisa Stelly.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system which affects around 100,000 people in the UK.
The coating around nerve fibres of MS sufferers is damaged, causing a range of symptoms including vision and balance problems, dizziness, fatigue, bladder problems and spasms.
Once diagnosed, MS stays with sufferers for life, but treatments and specialists can help to manage the symptoms.
