Virgin Media reports that Ozzy Osbourne returned to his home city earlier today (Friday, July 6) to accept the first place in a new Hollywood-style Walk of Stars.

The Prince of Darkness was greeted by around 1,500 fans who had braved intermittent rain for up to four hours while waiting in Birmingham's Centenary Square.

And the 58-year-old told the crowd his star on the Second City's streets meant far more to him than his spot on the pavement on the Walk of Fame in Los Angeles.

Addressing his fans from a stage set up in the square before unveiling the star, Ozzy said: "This means more to than any fucking Hollywood thing."

"I am really honored," the Aston-born singer then told reporters. "All my family is here and I thank everyone for this reception HuhHuh?? I'm absolutely knocked out."

Ozzy is the first star to be inducted into the Walk of Stars on Birmingham's Broad Street.

He was presented with the honor, which has yet to be set into the pavement, by the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Randal Brew.

Joining the recipient on stage, the Lord Mayor said: "We certainly need a Walk of Stars and I can't think of anyone more appropriate for the first star than Ozzy. He has been a credit to this city."
