British commercial broadcaster ITV has recruited a familiar face to guest-present an edition of their flagship daytime magazine show This Morning – with Sarah Ferguson arriving on the sofa this Monday.
The Sun reports that the former Duchess of York will guest-present the popular show for one day, as well as editing the show from the gallery.
Ferguson, who has previously appeared as a guest on the programme, told the newspaper: “I’m looking forward to being there for the whole morning, and thrilled to be guest editing the show which will mean getting to explore some topics I’m passionate about.”
Items on the show are scheduled to include an interview with veteran singer Sir Cliff Richard, how to home a dog, skin protection and the importance of defribillators.
ITV has been rotating guest presenters since its star host Holly Willoughby quit last month. She had been recovering from the news that she was the subject of a death threat, as well as the high-profile departure of her longtime co-presenter Phillip Schofield in the summer.
Ferguson is no stranger to the TV studio, having sat down with Oprah Winfrey for tell-all interviews following her divorce from Prince Andrew in the 1990s, and appeared on her own YouTube channel where she tells children’s stories.
The Sun reports that she was recruited to join the lineup for this year’s season of the reality show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! But talks stalled when she refused to discuss her former husband, with whom she still shares a home.
