"She was a judge and she was wonderful to work with," TV producer Claudia Rosencrantz told Deadline. "It's been eight years in my head trying to get those horses dancing. It's literally the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. It's like Dancing With The Stars but your partner is a horse and it is an absolutely, exquisite, complicated, wonderful show."

Claudia, a former ITV commissioner behind global hits including Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?, Hell's Kitchen and I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!, revealed that the pilot had been shot in the UK so they had access to highly-trained horses from Britain and France. And the results were absolutely worth it. "It made me extremely happy. I saw it, and at last thought I can die happy," she shared.

Her daughters have both taken part Storytime with Fergie and Friends; earlier this month Princess Beatice was her guest star, and during her introduction Sarah let slip her sweet nickname for her firstborn. "Oh my darling Trixie-Belle, I cannot thank you enough for doing this for your Mummy," Sarah said. "This is just incredible and you're so beautiful and I look at you reading these stories and I'm just the luckiest person alive to have two of the most beautiful girls. Thank you so much."
