PRINCE Andrew's ex wife Sarah Ferguson has landed a new US TV role - judging celebrities as they dance with horses.
Fergie has already shot the pilot for Fox show Dancing With Horses, where stars work with the animals to create a complicated dance routine.

TV producer Claudia Rosencrantz revealed Fergie’s role, calling the royal “wonderful”.
“She was a judge and she was wonderful to work with,” Rosencrantz, the former head of entertainment at ITV, said.
The producer, who previously worked on I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! And Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? admitted that it was “complicated” to shoot with the animals, that were filmed in the UK for access to Britain and France’s trained horses.
Rosencrantz added to 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.”

So far, only a pilot has been filmed but Claudia is confident that it will be turned into a whole series - which would give horse-lover Fergie a huge platform on international TV.
The ongoing coronavirus pandemic has halted discussions around the show being commissioned, but the it has the backing of Fox reality chief Rob Wade.
Fergie has previously appeared in The Vicar of Dibley as well as sitcom Friends.

The former member of the royal family was married to Prince Andrew for 10 years between 1986 and 1996, with the pair sharing two daughters together; Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
Last year, speculation began to mount that the pair were back together, with Fergie publicly defended her former husband over his links with famous sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.
US prosecutors say they would like to speak to The Duke about his friendship with the American financier, who committed suicide in prison in August 2019.

Virginia Giuffre, formerly Roberts, claims she was forced to have sex with Prince Andrew when she was 17 by Epstein and his Brit "madam" ex, Ghislaine Maxwell.
She previously alleged in court papers that she had sex with the royal "three times, including one orgy" in London, at Epstein's home, and on his private "paedo" island in the Caribbean.
Prince Andrew was pictured with his arm around the then 17-year-old’s waist at the home of Maxwell in London in 2001 - but he strenuously denies all the claims.

The royal has been keeping a low profile since Maxwell's arrest, and wasn't even pictured at his and Fergie's daughter Beatrice's wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi earlier this month.
The Palace released two initial wedding photos — one featured the Princess and her new husband while the other showed the newlyweds with the Queen and Prince Philip.
Another two photos were later released - but Prince Andrew was still absent from both, although it was reported that he walked her down the aisle.
Black Eyed Peas' Fergie Gets Rough And Regal In First Video From Solo LP | News

Fergie doesn't want to be known as just a chick Pea anymore. So like her labelmate (and former tourmate) Gwen Stefani, she's making herself the main dish by going solo.
But Fergie's keeping the guys close by -- her new video for "London Bridge," the first single from her LP, The Duchess (due September 19), puts the singer front and center, but there's still room for a few cameos from her Black Eyed Peas bandmates.
"We're doing this androgynous-type thing," Fergie said, "where [me and my girls] go into a gentlemen's club and pull them into a bathroom and come back out in their clothes. They're going to be dressed up really dapper and looking really handsome."
Fergie said she also collaborated with her Peas pal Will. I.Am on the clip's concept to make it more distinctive than another-female-solo-singer-does-a-dance-routine. "I didn't want it to be, 'OK, here I am now with my whole dancing posse,' " Fergie said. "We wanted to make it more of a tough feel, just like the song is," in which she sings "I'm such a lady, but I'm dancing like a ho."
"This song is kind of like a punch in the face to let people know I'm coming out," Fergie said. For the video, she brought in backup dancers who double as bodyguards, dressed like cholas -- tough Mexican girls known for wearing dark lipstick and big hair -- to make the clip "have a bit more edge, be very distinct, be very mixed." Fergie swears she used to want to be a chola growing up. "I used to do my hair and clothes in exactly the same way," she said.
"It really brings me back. People have never seen me in the Black Eyed Peas videos going to clubs and hanging out with my girls, and that's a big part of me," she continued. "I love to go to clubs, hang out, get buck wild, get into fashion. I probably need more girl energy in my life, because I'm around boys all the time."
Fergie designed one of her outfits for the video from her family's crest and tartan -- she is partially of Scottish descent -- "but not exactly, though. We want it to be modernized." She also wears a tiara cocked to the side of her head to play off the royal name of her album, as well as the similarity between her real name (Stacy Ferguson) and that of the Duchess of York (Sarah Ferguson). "It was just a funny play on words," Fergie said.
To keep the joke going, Fergie shot the "London Bridge" video -- where else? -- in London, at the Woolwich army barracks and on a boat on the Thames. "We got to use the whole cheeky London-type thing, playing with the British guards," she said of the two-day mid-June shoot with director Marc Webb. "But at the same time, we were playing with the '60s London feel, with the Brigitte Bardot bouffant hair, and mixing that up with the chola style. It's kind of a weird fusion, and it somehow just all works together. "
"London Bridge" is just a taste of more "weird fusion" to come, she promised. The song, which was co-written by Sean Garrett and produced by Polow Da Don (Ludacris, Pussycat Dolls), is a club track that only lightly touches on personal lyrics about fame and celebrity ("It's like every time I get up on the dude/ Paparazzi put my business in the news").
"I'm not the 'woe is me' artist, but it's tongue in cheek," Fergie said, "because I do love to laugh at myself. I'm not this serious person who's that sensitive, that you can never say anything about. I mean, I get it. I get the whole aspect of the business, so we kind of play with that a little bit in the video, but I didn't want the whole song to be about that, because it's boring."
The rest of the album, she insisted, is much more revealing, as she opens up about "just everything I've gone through in my life, everything that I've been influenced by."
Fergie has spoken openly in the past about dabbling with gang members as a teenager, as well as her recovery from an addiction to crystal meth that led to weight loss and paranoia.
"[She's] writing about her personal struggles and casting her demons away and feminine power," Will.I.Am said. "[It's] her singing for young girls to be strong, and what they're going through in life, just growing up in this world of uncertainty.
"I know females, and I know you all are going to like this."
Now the popular hip-hop artist Fergie is not having an easy time: the 42-year-old artist and her 44-year-old husband Josh Duhamel have decided to leave. What's next for Fergie? We are sure that big changes, in particular, we will not be surprised if she changes her image. From the very beginning of her career, the artist was not afraid to experiment with her appearance. She was both a blonde and a brunette, braided African pigtails ... The list can be continued for a long time. Today we remember how her image has changed.
Fergie was born Stacey Ferguson on March 27, 1975 in California. From early childhood, Stacey showed a love for creativity and grew up as a versatile child: she danced and voiced characters in the animated series. Later, Fergie became a member of the children's television show "Kids Incorporated" (Kids Incorporated) and the lead singer of the girl group Wild Orchid, where she sang for almost ten years.
In 2003, Stacey's life changed when she became the vocalist of the hip-hop group Black Eyed Peas. And then real fame came to the singer: the musical group became known all over the world, and Fergie was a welcome guest at various social events. Her first appearances on the red carpet can hardly be called successful: Fergie hid her natural beauty behind a thick layer of makeup. The singer especially loved to line her lips above the contour with a dark pencil and pluck her arched eyebrows to the thickness of the "thread".
Fergie's hair has also been a mess. On the red carpet, the singer often appeared with a yellowish tint of hair and unfashionable tails with voluminous bangs. In 2009, Fergie went from blonde to a sizzling brunette. The star radically changed her image especially for her role in the famous musical "Nine", where Marion Cotillard, Penelope Cruz and Nicole Kidman became her partners on the set.
In 2010, Fergie began to return to her original color. First, for this, she made an ombre, which, by the way, became a trend after only a few years.
2010/2011 2011/2012 90,003 90,002 In 2011, Fergie went (albeit temporarily) platinum blonde and also changed her makeup habits. Then the artist relied on a discreet and neat make-up.
Every girl's purse should have lipstick. I always have a nude color with me. And, of course, mascara - eyelashes are very important,
- Fergie said in one of her interviews.
Ferguson and her now ex-husband became parents in August 2013 with a son. As the singer admitted, it was difficult for her to get in shape after giving birth.
I couldn't recover for a long time after giving birth. First it was necessary to realize what had happened, and then to act. As a result, I did not immediately return to any of my cardio workouts. When this happened, I realized that I would have to sweat. To begin with, I increased the number of walks and runs. Then everything went back to normal,
- said the artist.
It seems that it was in 2015 that Fergie finally found her style. Natural makeup, thick eyebrows and voluminous styling - in such beauty images, the singer began to appear on the red carpet. And it still appears.
Fergie is currently preparing to release her new solo album Double Dutchess, which her fans have been waiting for over 10 years. We have no doubt that this singer will still surprise us. What is the advertising campaign of her record worth - frank and somewhere slightly gloomy photos and videos are intriguing. Well, let's watch!
Who is Fergie?
Fergie: “I would like to have a more or less organized life. Until it works!”
The singer and actress boasts (and regularly does!) many talents. And what does she prefer to be silent about? Yes about everything else.
Do not self-medicate! In our articles, we collect the latest scientific data and the opinions of authoritative health experts. But remember: only a doctor can diagnose and prescribe treatment.
The last time we saw Fergie, she was the epitome of aggressive sexuality. In a tight leather outfit, waving something resembling a duster, the singer lit up on stage with her colleagues from the Black Eyed Peas. She looked amazing, but now we're going to meet at her husband Josh Duhamel's chic country club. The neighborhood is reminiscent of the set of Desperate Housewives, according to Fergie.
While we are looking at the golf course (on which Josh is just practicing his shot), we are wondering which Fergie we will be lucky to talk with today. With the sexy kitty from The Dutchess album cover? With a sophisticated girl from her solo tour? With a fit beauty from numerous paparazzi reports?
Surprise! Flawless Fergie appears in a relaxed look that does not resemble any of the above: a complete lack of makeup, dark hair pulled into a ponytail, comfortable sportswear. It seems that at any moment she can be whoever she wants - just herself. “In Italy, Catholic boys are taught to believe that there are two types of women – the Madonna and the harlot,” explains Fergie, “I am both at the same time.”
Crazy life, sensible girl
In general, Fergie is so much at once that it's easy to get confused: member of the super-popular group Black Eyed Peas, solo artist with over 6 million albums sold, former drug addict, hypnotherapy fan, hummus lover, and now also a movie star, thanks to his participation in the Nine project. She herself cannot remember all aspects of her amazing personality.
"I would like to have a more or less organized life. Not yet!"
“I would like to have a more or less organized life, but it doesn't work yet,” the 34-year-old star complains. - I just decided to take a break - I was offered a role in "Nine", and I would have regretted it all my life if I had refused. I just threw myself into the pool with my head.
Fergie admits that for peace of mind she needs to prepare thoroughly before doing something new. To practice before auditioning for the role of the Italian prostitute Saragina in the film, the star listened to the song she was to sing many times every day. With such a huge talent, such diligence seems unnecessary and even harmful.
"She's just unrealistically gifted," says bandmate will.i.am. "All you have to do is ask, 'How about rock?' and she's already tuned in. Classic rhythm? No problem. Love ballad? Bang! There she is. This girl seems to be able to do anything. She's simply divine."
Fergie has had bit parts in Poseidon and Planet Terror before, but filming Nine is something completely new. like Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz and the legendary Sophia Loren.0003
However, don't forget that Stacey Ferguson started out as an actress. At the age of 9, she got a role in a children's television series, and then periodically appeared on the TV screen until she joined the group Wild Orchid in 1996. The breakthrough was an offer from the Black Eyed Peas, where Fergie had previously been on vocals, to become a full member of the team.
Oh yes, somewhere between the first and the last event, she managed to be a drug addict sitting on methedrine.
It seems impossible to live such a life and not go crazy. But Fergie, as we talk, literally radiates peace, charm and relaxation. The star even brought a pie with her to treat us!
“She's so surprisingly normal,” says the singer's current co-star Kate Hudson, “and calm! She has a strong personality, but that doesn't stop her from being very feminine. Few women in our business manage to strike such a brilliant balance between career and personal life.”
