‘I’m a celebrity!’ During her YouTube performances, Sarah Ferguson compares herself to Jennifer Aniston.
SARAH FERGUSON says her step-grandson Wolfie thinks of her as a “star” because of her children’s book readings on YouTube.
The 61-year-old Duchess of York has authored several children’s books and has now released her first book for an adult audience.
Fergie claims that her children’s books have given her a celebrity among the youth.
Wolfie, Princess Beatrice’s husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s five-year-old son, thinks his step-grandmother is a “star,” according to the Duchess.
On the Femail Half-Hour podcast, she claimed, “For him… I’m extremely cool.”
She further claimed that the five-year-old perceives her as the “Jennifer Aniston of his life” because he watches her on television and YouTube.
On August 3, the royal published her debut adult novel, A Heart for a Compass.
Fergie has just announced that she has secured a second book deal with Mills & Boon, following the success of her debut work.
On Radio 4’s Front Row, she added, “We all have self-doubt.”
“But it was extremely amazing to develop together in friendship and teamwork, and in this book Her Heart For A Compass, we’re both quite unified.
“We’ve signed our next book deal,” says Marguerite Kaye, who co-wrote the book, which is based on the life of Fergie’s great-great-aunt, Lady Margaret Montagu Douglas Scott.
Insiders say the two want to adapt the unpublished book into a TV series.
According to Variety, “[Sarah’s team] is already in talks with at least one streaming provider and will be pursuing others once a 360-degree treatment of the book is finalized.”
“Everyone involved is looking at Bridgerton’s popularity as proof of period drama’s enormous appeal on streaming services.”
