Meghan Markle could've been set to appear on Strictly Come Dancing, however she "didn't get the job."

Author Tom Bower was welcomed onto Lorraine with stand in host Christine Lampard where he revealed all about his new book, Revenge.

The writer, 75, didn't have the kindest things to say about the Duchess of Sussex, calling her relationship with the royals "very toxic" and "poisonous" since she sat down for the infamous Oprah Winfrey interview.

The journalist also revealed that Meghan "wanted" to feature on BBC's Strictly but things "didn't work out."

He told Christine: "She came to England looking for work, for fame, and also a boyfriend because she was always obsessed with finding an English boyfriend, and the man who introduced her to Strictly Come Dancing was a bit disappointed she didn't get the job."

He added: "She wanted it. He wanted it, but it sort of didn't work out."

But she came back to England anyway and got the Strictly and the dancing, she's got everything."

Tom noted that he hadn't given the Suits actress much thought until she did the Oprah Winfrey interview which he labelled a "disgrace."
