Lady Colin Campbell, 70, has spoken about why she would consider competing in the upcoming Strictly Come Dancing series. In an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, she explained that although her “private life is private”, it would not stop her wanting to earn a fee to help run her beloved home, Castle Goring.
You wouldn’t see me for dust
While discussing a potential offer from Strictly, she revealed: “I will consider anything that pays enough to assist with the running of Castle Goring.
“I make no bones about it. I do all the public appearances, I do them purely for Castle Goring.
“That’s why I say I’m, ‘Whoring for Goring’ because if it wasn’t for Goring, you wouldn’t see me for dust except when I write a book.
“I keep my private life, private, and always have,” she added.
The royal author purchased Castle Goring after she instantly fell in love with the grade I listed country house in Worthing, in West Sussex.
She divulged: “It is the first home I have been into in my adult life that felt like home, so it was a purely emotional response.
“I’m a great homebody, I know that when I was younger people thought that I was out eight nights a week, but i’ve always been a great homebody.
The venue, which can be hired for weddings, recently resumed ceremonies following the loosening of social distancing restrictions.
Lady Colin said. “Well we did one (wedding) yesterday, and for the first time ever I represented the castle at the wedding.
“It was so lovely, the bride and groom permitted me to post a picture of them on my YouTube channel, so it’s going to be up tomorrow.
“You know a representative of the castle has to be there, before and after as well. I did it and I loved it, I suppose I’m still a bit of a romantic. “

On the programme, Lady Colin was paired with three potential suitors but did not find lasting love.
In 1974, Lady Colin married Lord Colin Ivar Campbell after knowing him for five days.
She said: “He had the strongest personality of anyone I had ever met – he simply exuded strength, decisiveness and charm.”
The couple honeymooned in Jamaica and met Lord Colin’s family at his ancestral home of Inveraray Castle in Argyll.
They were married for nine short months before filing for divorce.
Lady Colin said of marrying again that she would not consider it unless she was made a “rich widow”.
She confessed: “Well if he was 103, has at least 200 million pounds and wishes to make me a rich widow then yes.
“Otherwise, I see no marriage.”
