Tipped to be the 'weirdest interview you'll ever see,' the Duchess left the room after being quizzed about the cash- for-access-scandal
Uh-oh. Ex-royal Sarah Ferguson has found herself at the centre of a media furore once again, after storming out of an interview being filmed for Australian TV.
Already being billed as ‘the weirdest interview you’ll ever see,’ the former Duchess angrily left the set of Australia’s hard-hitting 60 minutes programme while the cameras were still rolling, after being quizzed about the cash-for-access-scandal, involving Prince Andrew.
And now a war of words has broken out between the Ferguson’s manager John Scott and show bosses – who are adamant the Duchess approved the list of questions beforehand.
Scott has already asked network bosses to cut the unflattering footage from the final report, but says he hasn’t yet had a response.
‘He hasn’t had the decency to get back to me, nor has [Channel Nine boss] David Gyngell, despite showing the Duchess in the worst possible light,’ he told the Sydney’s Daily Telegraph.
‘We had gone through all the questions and subject matter beforehand and filmed all the walking in the park footage before we sat down.
‘She did walk out when she was ambushed – no, it was entrapment – but after cooling down she said to me, “F**k them, let’s do this,” and she did, but it was a banal interview and her demeanour reflected that.’
But show producers hit back: ‘She agreed to talk about the issue, as she has already extensively done, so it certainly wasn’t entrapment.’
