Former British royal DUCHESS OF YORK, Sarah Ferguson is dying to star in the hit TV series Desperate Housewives.

The ex-wife of PRINCE ANDREW has already appeared in Friends and has been offered a cameo role in Will And Grace.

But now the 45-year-old is desperate to star in the racy ABC dark comedy - which won two Golden Globe Awards last month (JAN05).

The redhead describes her ideal character as, "Very loyal, very strong with a bit of courage."

She says, "I want a whole new character. Always to be original is good."
