FERGIE IS 'WANTED' BY INTERPOL IN FILM ROW; EXCLUSIVE.

Byline: BY EMILY NASH

A CRIMINAL complaint has been made against Fergie after her TV expose of orphanages in Turkey.

Interpol has asked the Duchess of York for her contact details after she was accused of a "violation of privacy" while filming undercover.

The Duchess, 49, disguised herself in a wig and headscarf and posed as a potential donor to get access to the homes for disabled and abandoned children. The shocking conditions, which included youngsters tied to beds or left in their cots all day, were secretly filmed by an ITV crew and broadcast last November. The Tonight programme enraged the Turkish authorities, which accused Fergie of "smearing" their country. They also launched a criminal complaint accusing her of violating the children's privacy.

Yesterday a spokeswoman for the Duchess refused to comment. But an ITV spokeswoman stood by the programme and the reporting methods used.
