Rocky star admits he used to fancy the Duchess of York

Rocky star Sylvester Stallone admits he once had the hots for Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, and even tried to go out with her.

But the feisty red-head gave him the brush-off because her divorce from Prince Andrew had just been finalised.

A friend of the Duchess tells the Daily Star: ‘Apparently Sylvester had a thing for Royal girls. The romance never blossomed, but the pair remain good friends.’

Sylvester, 60, is now wed to his third wife Jennifer Flavin, 38.
