    Sarah Ferguson has signed up to present This Morning.

    The Duchess of York will co-host the show on Monday (November 20) alongside regulars Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary. She said: "I have appeared on This Morning before, but this time I am coming back in a very different role. I love live TV and am an enormous fan of the show, and the whole team is always lovely to deal with."

    'Fergie' will also help edit the episode behind the scene, which means she’ll get to choose some of the segments. She added: "I'm looking forward to being there for the whole morning and thrilled to be guest editing the show, which will mean getting to explore some topics that I’m passionate about."

    Bosses are convinced she will be a huge hit with viewers. Editor Martin Frizell said the team were "delighted" to have her back. He added: "I'm very happy for her to make some of my decisions on Monday. She has a great understanding of the show and how television works and I feel viewers will be really interested in the running order she is putting together."

    It was previously revealed that the royal, deemed a "natural", was in talks for a spot on the ITV show. A source told the Mirror she had "hugely enjoyed" hosting Loose Women.

    It comes just days after Sarah was a panelist on the ITV show. During her debut on the panellist show, Sarah spoke about her health concerns following a breast cancer diagnosis and mastectomy. The mother of two was on the programme to launch its inaugural 'Don't Skip Your Screening' campaign, highlighting the importance of attending mammogram appointments.

    "And then of course you start four in the morning syndrome,' she told Christine Lampard, Coleen Nolan and Brenda Edwards on the pre-recorded one-off special. "You know that moment when you suddenly wake up and go 'Oh I'm sure I've got cancer somewhere else. I'm gonna go and ring my doctor'."

    "I'm getting over that but it's only been a few months since I've had the operation, so I'm just beginning to sit up straight." Sarah also joked about the reconstructive surgery she had following her single mastectomy where "they remove all of your fat", which she thought "was going to be great" – to recreate a breast. "I thought, at last!" she quipped. "You got a waistline," Brenda chipped in.

    The Duchess opened up about feeling grateful that her diagnosis was caught just in time, and navigating the 'feeling of demise' at the news. "I caught it so early, just in time," she added. "The real thing is, it's that terrible fear of 'oh no, it won't happen to me' and that's why I want to shout about it. I wouldn't be sitting here if I hadn't have gone."

    Prince Andrew's ex-wife also revealed how she initially almost missed her screening appointment, which caught a "shadow" on the breast that hadn't been there 18 months prior, at her last mammogram. However, thanks to her "bossy" older sister, who was visiting from Australia, she decided to go. "It was after a bank holiday and it was a Tuesday morning,' she recounted. "And I thought 'No, it's a hot day' and "Nah, no, I don't need to go, I'm sure it'll all be fine' I had no symptoms."

    This Morning airs weekdays on ITV! and ITVX at 10am
