Former British royal Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York has given up on dating - because men are terrified of her.

Ferguson, who divorced Prince Andrew in 1996, finds the pressure of fame and her emotional baggage too much for most suitors to cope with.

The mother-of-two tells: "I'm a strong woman who also brings the world's press with her.

"You wouldn't want to give up your private life, you'd have to have a very clean slate for that.

"They run for the hills - always."

Ferguson recently denied a romantic link to American businessman Mark Freitas after they were spotted dining together.
