The Razz: Jack toasts being a drunk.

Byline: WITH BEVERLEY LYONS AND CATH BENNETT

REFORMED teen rebel Jack Osbourne says being a drunk was the best thing that ever happened to him.

The TV star, 19, son of legendary hellraiser Ozzy, went through rehab for drink and drug addiction two years ago.

Since kicking the habits he has shed five stone in weight and taken up extreme sports, leading to his own show, Adrenaline Junkie, starting on ITV2 on October 1.

He said: "I don't regret what happened. In a weird way being an alcoholic and drug addict was probably one of the best things could have done to myself.

"It made me sort myself out, I was out of control. was so low the week I checked myself into rehab in LA. I knew if I wasto carry on like that was going to end up dead."

Now Jack is on the look-out for his perfect lady.

He said: "In an ideal world I'd stay with one woman all my life. Unfortunately the world we live in is far from ideal.

"I like a girl who is open-minded. If she has no expectations in life then there's no room for failure
