Los Angeles - Jack Osbourne has been named Inspiration of the Year by the MS Society.

The 28-year-old star - who was diagnosed with the degenerative condition in 2012 - said it was a "true honour and privilege" to be recognised by the charity at their annual awards ceremony and stressed his intention to continually raise awareness of the disease.

He said in a video message: "Thank you very much to the MS Society for awarding me the inspiration 2014 award, it is a true honour and a privilege.

"When I got diagnosed with MS two years ago, for me it was never about getting awards or turning up to galas, it was about coming to the realisation I was going to have this disease for the rest of my life and I was determined to be as vocal and loud as possible to let people know that this exists and it effects millions of people daily."

Jack - who has two-year-old daughter Pearl with wife Lisa Stelly - went on to stress how the condition not only affects sufferers but their loved ones too.

He added: "The MS society has done wonders for providing resources, information and financial support to the many ,many people affected by this disease - not only the sufferers, but the family members, because at the end of the day, when I have a bad day, so does my wife.

"I'm not only accepting this for myself but the millions of people affected by this daily."
