Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, has an ice bath every day to dispel her “darkness”.
Sarah, the ex-wife of Prince Andrew, has revealed she is still crippled by severe depression and her black moods are only eased by a relaxing soak in the bath.
She said: “Every minute of my day I think I am fat, ugly and disgusting – that I am unworthy and nobody likes me. I find it very difficult dealing with the darkness in the mornings. I go and work out then I have an ice bath. It invigorates me for the rest of the day.”
Sarah – who spent months living with a hard-up family on a Hull council estate in order to educate them on healthier living for new TV show The Duchess in Hull – also admits she is worried about leaving the US and returning home to the UK.
She said: “I am terrified the British people aren’t going to come with me. I am taking a real gamble. I guess I can always go back to America.”
The Duchess in Hull will be broadcast on ITV in two parts on May 19 and May 20.
