SARAH FERGUSON is to take part in a reality show featuring one of Queen’s favourite animals described as Dancing with The Stars for horses.
Sarah, also known by friends and family as Fergie, has shot the pilot for Fox network’s Dancing with Horses. The Duchess of York won’t be one of the contestants, who will complete difficult dance routines with horses, as she will be sitting at the judges’ table.
Speaking about Fergie’s work so far, TV producer Claudia Rosencrantz told Deadline: “She was a judge and she was wonderful to work with.
“It’s been eight years in my head trying to get those horses dancing.
“It’s literally the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen.
“It’s like Dancing With The Stars but your partner is a horse and it is an absolutely, exquisite, complicated, wonderful show.”

The pilot of this new show was shot in the UK, Ms Rosencrantz has revealed, so contestants could get access to the excellent breeds of horses trained in the UK and France.
The producer, who has worked in the past to global hits such as Who Wants To Be a Millionaire? and Hell’s Kitchen, appears to be over the moon at the work done so far on her new show.
She added: “It made me extremely happy. I saw it, and at last thought I can die happy.”

Fergie’s new venture will come after the Duchess of York has spent months entertaining children and their parents with her YouTube channel.
In April, Prince Andrew’s former wife launched Storytime with Fergie & Friends, a daily show in which either the Duchess or one of her guests read a children’s story.
Upon launching the show, which sees Fergie uploading a video every day, Fergie published a post on Instagram explaining the aim of her new project.

“Excited to be launching Storytime with Fergie and Friends on my new @youtube and @facebookapp channels – a traditional children’s storytime every day to help keep them entertained during lockdown.
“I’ll be reading both my own stories and others and asking friends to join in.
“It’s all free and just for fun.
“There will be a new story posted every weekday at 4pm and a longer storytime on Saturdays.

“I so hope you enjoy them and they give some of you something new to do during this difficult time for everyone”.
Among the guests who read books to their virtual public from their homes there were also Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
Newly-wed Beatrice joined her mother’s project in late June as she read The Worrysaurus by Rachel Bright in a lavish garden believed to be the one of her mother-in-law.
Fergie introduced Beatrice’s video with a heartfelt comment in which she thanked her daughter.

She said: “Oh my darling Trixie Belle, I cannot thank you enough for doing this for your mummy, this is just incredible and you are just so beautiful.
“I look at you reading these stories and I just go I mean I am the luckiest person alive to have two most beautiful girls, thank you so much.”
Eugenie has appeared twice on her mother’s channel, having spent the past few months of lockdown with Prince Andrew, Fergie and Jack Brooksbank at the Royal Lodge.
