With Weight Watchers spokesperson, chat show host and, of course, British royal, among her endeavours, Sarah, Duchess of York is set to add another item to her CV.
Prince Andrew's former spouse is going to be a radio DJ, taking an on-air spot on Radio 2's Steve Wright show next week.
"She was a guest of Steve's last year, and she enjoyed it so much she's come back to co-host the show," confirmed a BBC spokesperson. "And that will include helping with the interviews." During her stint, which will last from Tuesday to Thursday, the flame-haired royal's celebrity guests will include entertainer Cilla Black and Irish boy band Westlife.
Meanwhile, the Duchess' US chat show, which had been set to start this autumn, has apparently been postponed. Though in a recent interview, Sarah implied the project might be shelved for good – "It might have been too much for me, and I don't think I could bear to spend more than five days apart from my children," she said in June – a spokesperson for the programme said the series may still air in 2004.
