Alongside relaxing children’s stories, Sarah has shared clips of herself making rainbow cakes, fairy wings and teddy necklaces to inspire youngsters – and give parents some stay-at-home ideas. 

She has also been joined on her channel, named Storytime With Fergie And Friends, by the likes of her daughter Princess Eugenie, Stephen Fry and Lady Forsyth, Bruce Forsyth’s widow Wilnelia.
