Princess Diana’s former butler takes up job again for reality dating show

Princess Diana's former butler will re-enter his trade for a new reality TV dating show.

Paul Burrell, who the Princess of Wales once described as "her rock", will take part in the pilot of the new dating show Money Can't Buy Me Love.

The former royal butler worked for Diana for 10 years after starting off as a footman for the Queen when he was 18 years old.

In the new reality show, Paul will be waiting on rich singletons who will be staying in a stunning country mansion.

The show is a brainchild of millionaire cupid Lisa Palmer who aims to bring together 12 wealthy but very different people.

The mansion will be packed with stylists and groomers plus a psychologist to help contestants work out if others are only interested in them for their money.

"I’m not easily persuaded when it comes to being offered new roles but when Lisa approached me about the show, I knew that I had to be part of it," Paul told The Sun.

"If anyone knows about the benefits of stately life, it’s me and I’ll be on hand to offer etiquette advice, someone for a heart-to-heart with and more."

"It’s my time to put my heart and soul into being a butler again, and I can’t wait to have a shiny tray in my hands."

It will not be the first time that Paul dips his foot into the world of reality television.

In 2004 he appeared on I'm A Celebrity and in 2015 he was one of the contestants on Celebrity Big Brother.

Originally from Grassmoor in Derbyshire Paul joined the household of Prince Charles and Diana at Highgrove House until her death in 1997.

In 2003, he released a memoir, A Royal Duty, which detailed his career as a butler, particularly while working for Diana.

Before the book was released Harry and William released a statement expressing their unhappiness with the book and called it a "cold and overt betrayal".
