Virginia Giuffre speaks to BBC's Panorama programme: BBC

The Duke of York faces fresh scrutiny over allegations he had sex with a trafficked teenager and about his association with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein following an interview with his accuser.

Virginia Giuffre called on the British public to stand up beside her in her fight as she told BBC Panorama how the duke’s sweat was “raining basically everywhere”.

“I was just like grossed out from it, but I knew I had to keep him happy because that’s what Jeffrey and Ghislaine (Maxwell) would have expected from me,” she said in her first UK television interview.

​She claims the Duke of York slept with her three times – twice while she was underage – after she was trafficked by convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Prince Andrew and Buckingham Palace have denied the claims.

She said: “He knows what happened. I know what happened. And there is only one of us telling the truth.”
