Sarah Ferguson said her ex-husband Prince Andrew is such a “good grandfather” as she swerved a question about them rekindling their romance on Loose Women.

“He is such a good grandfather, I get a bit of FOMO because he’s so good with August.”

The duchess added: “He’s a really good, thoroughly good man and it’s a joy to be able to spend time as a family.
