Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, is reportedly in talks with ITV's This Morning for a slot on the show after she previously impressed TV bosses when she joined the Loose Women panel to discuss her breast cancer ordeal.

During her appearance on This Morning in March this year, Holly Willoughby asked if she would like to return to the show with a love phone-in. Sarah responded: "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."

These discussions with Sarah come just weeks after Holly Willoughby announced she was leaving the show to focus on her family following threats to her safety.

The person who will take over Holly's full-time role has not yet been revealed. In the meantime, stars like Alison Hammond and Josie Gibson are sharing hosting duties.

A TV insider told the Mirror: "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."

A source close to the Duchess said she had "hugely enjoyed" co-hosting Loose Women to promote a campaign to persuade women not to skip breast cancer screening, but refused to comment on other projects.

Sarah is one of the many names rumoured to be in the running to replace Holly, along with Alison Hammond, Rylan Clark, Josie Gibson, Rochelle Humes and Davina McCall.

OK! Has contacted Sarah Ferguson's representatives for comment.

Over the course of her life in the public eye, The Duchess has been no stranger to telly and previously worked as a special correspondent on NBC's Today in the States.

She has also fronted documentaries in the UK including The Duchess in Hull and The Duchess on the Estate as she immersed herself into how different families lived and how to improve their lifestyles.

Cat Deeley is another name who has been dubbed as Holly's replacement and is set to join Rylan Clark on the popular morning show on November 13 and 14.

A source shared to The Sun that Cat is a 'seasoned pro' and has been on the show's radar for a while. They said she's great with live TV and has a knack for making guests feel at ease.
