Sarah Ferguson's short stint hosting This Morning has led to the ex-Duchess having "talks with ITV" for a "huge" upcoming hosting gig.
"She’s talking to ITV about a return to both This Morning and Loose Women soon, and has been told she's welcome any time," a source spilled.
Ferguson stepped in to host the popular morning show in November 2023 when co-host Holly Willoughby left the series. Fergie's response was mostly positive, and rumors swirled that the former royal princess could become a full-time host. "The Duchess’s writing career and charity work wouldn’t allow her to be a full-time TV host, and this was never envisaged by either side," a source close to the ex-Duchess of York revealed.
Her Former Royal Highness opened one show last November by stating: "I am Sarah, the Duchess of York, and I have appeared on this show many times. As an enormous fan of the show, I have always enjoyed myself here. Today, though, I am joining the family as co-host brackets fluff, alongside Alison and Dermot."
She continued: "And as guest editor for the day, I have been working with the brilliant team behind the scenes to bring you some of the topics I am most passionate about."
Those tuning in went to social media to reveal their not-so-flattering thoughts about Prince Andrew's ex-wife and current roommate at the Royal Lodge. One wrote: "Fergie, on This Morning totally sums up how utterly pathetic the show has become," while another claimed: "ITV has lost the plot. Massive switch off!! # this morning."
The former royal got some praise, with someone adding: "I forgot how funny Fergie is #thismorning."
"There is no way back for him. Andrew should have no place in public alongside the King or any other member of the royal family," a palace insider shared. The advice came amid the documents showing that an Epstein s-- slave, Jane Doe 3, stated that she was forced to engage in sexual activity with the Duke of York. The papers shared that the underage girl was "forced to have sexual relations with this prince when she was a minor in three separate geographical locations."
The revelations have now pushed the ongoing "Andrew situation" the monarchy has faced for over four years into the "nuclear" territory when it comes to public perception. There are also fresh calls from anti-Crown activists for the King himself to publicly address the dire new evidence.
Andrew and Sarah divorced in 1996 but have remained friends ever since. The former Duchess of York moved into Andrew's home, the Royal Lodge, in 2008.
