If you happen to be walking by Westminster Abby and hear a furious whirring sound, don’t be alarmed, that’s just the sound of generations of British monarchs spinning in their boxes at the news that one of their kin is to turn chat show host.

That’s right latest celebrity tipped to take the This Morning gig is none other than the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson.

Genuine daytime TV royal Fern Britton is to leave ITV1 show in July and several presenters including Fiona Phillips, Coleen Nolan, Holly Willoughby and Christine Bleakley have been named as possible replacements.

The Duchess, also known as Fergie, is apparently very keen and, according to a report in The Sun, “came in to see the team and later that evening called back to ask if she could be kept in mind for Fern’s replacement.”

This Morning are keeping tight lipped about the identity of the new presenter but rumour has it Fergie is a good contender.
