Sarah had less than 20 connections as of Tuesday night, but the number will undoubtedly grow as more and more people learn that she has joined the networking platform. 

The Duchess of York is certainly keeping busy while in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

She launched her daily show ‘Storytime with Fergie and Friends’ on her new YouTube channel last month to bring a ‘little bit of magic’ to children during the global crisis. 

On Tuesday morning, she posed with a rainbow balloon and colourful sandwiches to announce that TV producer Michael Whitehall and his wife Hilary — parents of comedian Jack Whitehall — would join her for the tenth episode of her show.

‘Today at 4pm on Storytime with Fergie and Friends I am going to be showing a surprise video! My guest friends will be @fatherwhitehall and @hilarywhitehall,’ she captioned the image.  

For their appearance, Michael and Hilary sat in front of their bookcase at their home in London to read ‘Oh, When I Was Your Age’.   

The book, written by Ken Adams and illustrated by Val Biro, was published in 1991 and tells the story of Grandpa who appears to have done everything much better than his grandson Sammy in his younger years.
