Music manager Sharon Osbourne has beaten husband Ozzy to be crowned Radio Rock Personality Of The Year (04).

THE X FACTOR TV talent show judge was awarded the award which her spouse won last year (03) - after polling 6,000 votes from listeners to Britain's VIRGIN RADIO.

SIR Bob Geldof came second for 're-forming Band Aid and taking on the world again' and SIR Elton John was voted into third place after insulting Madonna and George Michael this year (04).

Virgin's Most Wanted presenter BEN JONES says,"Sharon took on the pop pansy Simon Cowell at his own game and showed him who the boss was.

"She is a role model for the nation. Speak your mind and say what's what."

1. SHARON OSBOURNE
