Princess Anne’s son-in-law, Mike Tindall, may have appeared on the popular show I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, but it seems one major royal refuses to follow in his footsteps. 

Sarah Ferguson, 64, has revealed despite being asked ‘hundreds of times’ there is no chance she will venture into the wild to participate in the hit show, stating it’s ‘not for me’. 

Sarah, who has daughters Princess Eugenie, 34, and Princess Beatrice, 35, with her ex-husband Prince Andrew, 64, is no stranger to television.

In addition to her life as a royal, she has also held a career in film and TV including stepping into producer roles, voice acting and presenting. 

While her career has resulted in some impressive roles, such as producing the 2009 Emily Blunt-fronted film The Young Victoria, co-founding the independent production house Vestapol Films, and launching her own podcast, she has admitted reality TV isn’t for her. 

In a recent interview, the royal said ITV has reached out to her multiple times to participate in the show in which celebrities are placed in the jungle and must participate in challenges in order to win. 

‘I’ve been asked to go on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! hundreds of times, and the answer is always no. I’m sure it’s lovely for lots of people but not for me!’ she told Platinum Magazine, which goes on sale today.

Even though Sarah says I’m A Celebrity isn’t her cup of tea, she isn’t closing the door on the world of television completely and said she has been chasing an appearance in a different TV show. 

Speaking to the outlet, Sarah admitted, ‘I’ve asked my agent to get me on Bridgerton! The set designs are incredible!’

The Duchess of York is so keen for a role in the show that she even has a storyline planned out, ‘I could be a long-lost friend for Penelope (Featherington – played by Nicola Coughlan.) I just have to be on Bridgerton!’ She said.

It’s been a tough year for Sarah, who was diagnosed with breast cancer last summer and later had a mastectomy to address it.

During later reconstructive surgery, she had several moles taken off and tested, and one was confirmed to contain cancer cells.

The last official update on her health came in January when a spokesperson said she was still ‘undergoing further investigations to ensure that this has been caught in the early stages.’

It comes after she shared her public support for King Charles, 75, and Catherine, Princess of Wales, 42, admitting she is ‘so proud’ they have opened up about their battles with cancer.
