What's more, the Live star has hinted that she could well have a very famous reader - none other than Meghan Markle.

In an interview with WSJ, Kelly explained that she was due to announce her book on the same day as Prince Harry, and as a result she delayed her announcement.

However, while she thinks Harry wouldn't read it, she thinks there's a chance, albeit a small one, that Meghan may.

When asked whether Harry would read her book, she replied: "Oh, I think it’s probably a 0 per cent chance, but maybe Meghan Markle will. I mean, maybe."

On delaying her book announcement, she explained: "I delayed my announcement because I didn't want the Prince Harry of it all to suck the wind out of my little tiny announcement. Then I delayed it only to be upstaged by the Bezos rocket blasting into the substratosphere. So to me, it was just all bad omens, right? Maybe we shouldn't announce it all. Just let people find it in the library."
