(KATAKAMI / GUARDIAN.CO.UK)  Ms Winfrey is preparing to launch her own cable channel in 2011 and has offered the Duchess, who is struggling with debts of £2 million, a deal.

The offer comes after Sarah Ferguson appeared on the Oprah Show in May where she apologised after being caught asking for £500,000 to provide access to Prince Andrew – a deal the prince knew nothing about.

A source close to the Duchess told The Mail on Sunday: “Oprah made the call this week. They spoke in person and, for Sarah, the offer is a ray of light at the end of a very dark tunnel.

“Oprah has known Sarah for some time and the Duchess went on Oprah’s show to explain herself after her most recent scandal. Oprah has always been impressed by Sarah’s ability to pick herself up and reinvent herself.”

It is thought the Duchess’s experiences may help her connect with an American audience.

When the Duchess appeared on Ms Winfrey’s show she admitted she had been drunk when she was secretly taped accepting the money – which has since been paid back – and told the host: “I was not in the right place. I haven’t faced the devil in the face because I was in the gutter at that moment.”

After the show was broadcast some viewers posted comments on Ms Winfrey’s website criticising the Duchess.

The New York Times televsision reviewer mocked her for what she called the “ritual of repentance and renewal that these celebrity makeovers require.”

The Duchess has made no secret of her plans to relaunch her business career in the US where she says the people are more welcoming than in Britain.
