British royal Sarah Ferguson is to star in popular American sitcom WILL + GRACE - the second time she's featured in a US TV comedy show.

The DUCHESS OF YORK agreed to make an appearance on the hit programme - about a gay man and his best friend - after meeting its star Eric Mccormack in London.

Other guests on the show have included Madonna, SIR Elton John and Hollywood star Michael Douglas.

A show insider says, "She is very popular in the states. Everyone will get a real kick out of seeing her."

The weightloss queen has already had a cameo role in comedy favourite Friends.
