Sarah Ferguson Duchess of York turns down Strictly Come Dancing 2010

Sarah Ferguson Duchess of York recently turned down the chance to appear on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, despite being offered a five figure pay packet.

An insider told The Sun that BBC bosses made the offer to Sarah after viewers expressed disappointment with last year’s “lacklustre” line-up. The larger than normal fee was put to the Duchess before her recent cash for access scandal emerged. Since being outed as offering access to her Royal ex husband for huge amounts of cash, Sarah tried to claim that she only did so because she is broke. However she wasn’t broke enough to appear on a lowly reality TV show.

A source said: “Despite a really big offer way above the average fee, she didn’t seem keen to put in four months’ work and refused to take part.

“It looks as though Fergie thought she could earn more money over a few dinners.”
