The Duchess of York is taking her side of the 'cash for access' story to the queen of television.

Sarah Ferguson will appear on Oprah Winfrey next week after being exposed on video offering access to her former husband Prince Andrew for £500,000.

The programme, going out in the US next Tuesday, will be the duchess’s first TV interview since the scandal broke.
