Prince Andrew to break silence on Jeffrey Epstein scandal in BBC interview


PRINCE Andrew will break his silence on the Jeffrey Epstein scandal in a BBC interview.

It will be the first time the 59-year-old has answered questions about his relationship with the paedo financier.

BBC reporter Emily Maitlis sat down with the royal, saying it would be a “no holds barred interview” where “no questions (were) vetted”.

In a promo for the interview, which will air on BBC2 on Saturday night, Epstein can be seen sitting across from Maitlis.

It is unclear where the interview was held.

It comes after the prince has faced accusations by American Virginia Roberts that he had sex with her when she was 17-years-old.

She claims she was lent out by Epstein to sleep with his powerful pals, including the Duke of York accusations the royal vehemently denies.

And now she says she wants to see the circle of elite men who sexually assaulted her go to jail including Prince Andrew.

But Andrew has repeatedly denied the accusations which were struck out by a US court.

The royal was infamously pictured with his arm around Virginia when she was 17 at a party thrown by Epstein and his alleged Brit madam Ghislaine Maxwell.

She is one of dozens of women who have accused Epstein of sexual assault and manipulation.

Epstein was facing charges of running a global child sex ring when he killed himself in a New York jail cell in August.

Since his death, fresh scrutiny has been paid to his crimes and his associates including Prince Andrew and Epsteins alleged British sidekick Ghislaine Maxwell.
