Prince Andrew’s ex Fergie lands new US TV job as judge on a show where celebs dance with HORSES

PRINCE Andrew’s ex wife Sarah Ferguson has landed a new US TV role – judging celebrities as they dance with horses.

Fergie has already shot the pilot for Fox show Dancing With Horses, where stars work with the animals to create a complicated dance routine.

TV producer Claudia Rosencrantz revealed Fergie’s role, calling the royal “wonderful”.

“She was a judge and she was wonderful to work with,” Rosencrantz, the former head of entertainment at ITV, said.

The producer, who previously worked on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! And Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? admitted that it was “complicated” to shoot with the animals, that were filmed in the UK for access to Britain and France’s trained horses.

Rosencrantz added to Deadline: “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.”

So far, only a pilot has been filmed but Claudia is confident that it will be turned into a whole series – which would give horse-lover Fergie a huge platform on international TV.

The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has halted discussions around the show being commissioned, but the it has the backing of Fox reality chief Rob Wade.

Fergie has previously appeared in The Vicar of Dibley as well as sitcom Friends.

The former member of the royal family was married to Prince Andrew for 10 years between 1986 and 1996, with the pair sharing two daughters together; Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.

Last year, speculation began to mount that the pair were back together, with Fergie publicly defended her former husband over his links with famous sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

US prosecutors say they would like to speak to The Duke about his friendship with the American financier, who committed suicide in prison in August 2019.

Virginia Giuffre, formerly Roberts, claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17 by Epstein and his Brit “madam” ex, Ghislaine Maxwell.

She previously alleged in court papers that she had sex with the royal “three times, including one orgy” in London, at Epstein’s home, and on his private “paedo” island in the Caribbean.

Prince Andrew was pictured with his arm around the then 17-year-old’s waist at the home of Maxwell in London in 2001 – but he strenuously denies all the claims.

The royal has been keeping a low profile since Maxwell’s arrest, and wasn’t even pictured at his and Fergie’s daughter Beatrice’s wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi earlier this month.

The Palace released two initial wedding photos — one featured the Princess and her new husband while the other showed the newlyweds with the Queen and Prince Philip.

Another two photos were later released – but Prince Andrew was still absent from both, although it was reported that he walked her down the aisle.
