Sarah Ferguson is being lined up for This Morning

The Duchess of York - who previously joined the 'Loose Women' panel to talk about her breast cancer battle - is said to be in the running with ITV bosses following Holly Willoughby's departure.

An insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The Duchess was a real hit with ITV bosses on Loose Women, everyone thought she was a natural.

"There is an open invitation for her to return to 'Loose Women' and there is also talk of her doing a guest slot on 'This Morning' or a mini-series for them.

"She has done quite a lot of TV work before - at one point she stood in for Larry King in the US."

She appeared on 'This Morning' back in March, and then-host Holly Willoughby asked if she's like to return at some point for a "love phone-in".

She said at the time: "Holly, I would love to do that maybe when you’re back from your annual leave and the Easter holidays!

"But there’s no question, that is right on topic. We love to love."

Holly left 'This Morning' last month in the wake of the Phillip Schofield scandal and a stalker scare, with bosses still trying to decide on a permanent replacement with the likes of Josie Gibson and Alison Hammond appearing for the time being.

Meanwhile, it's been reported the BBC are eyeing her up to join Bradley and Barney Walsh on the second series of their 'Gladiators' reboot.

An insider recently told The Sun: "As she’s such a big star, she’s a natural fit for a huge entertainment show, which the reboot of ‘Gladiators’ unquestionably is.

“The Beeb will let the dust settle on her ‘This Morning’ exit, and for the first series to run, before kicking off talks. But she's an obvious choice to become the new Ulrika.”
