Prince Andrew’s accuser in BBC interview repeats her sex allegations

The woman Prince Andrew has said he doesn’t remember meeting told her story during an interview with the BBC,,  reiterating her allegations that he had sex with her three times two decades ago when she was 17.

In the process, Virginia Roberts Giuffre, 36, an American who now lives in Australia, appealed to the British public to believe her accusations and not Andrew’s denials.

“I implore the people in the U.K. to stand up beside me and help me fight this fight, to not accept this as being OK,” she said in a clip released by the BBC Monday. “This is not some sordid sex story, this is a story of being trafficked…”

Giuffre was interviewed for a program, “The Prince and the Epstein Scandal,” that is to air Monday evening in Britain, two weeks after Andrew’s interview with the BBC aired. Giuffre’s sit-down will air in the U.S. on Saturday at 3 p.m. ET and on Sunday at 9 p.m. on BBC World News, the global 24-hour news channel. 

The interview with Giuffre, which was taped in October before Andrew’s November interview, was produced by the BBC’s Panorama show. It comes five days after Andrew’s sit-down led to the Duke of York stepping away from the royal spotlight due to his poorly received attempts to explain his long relationship with convicted American sex offender Jeffrey Epstein.

In another clip released by the BBC, Giuffre described Andrew’s heavy sweating while dancing as “gross.”

“He asked me to dance; he is the most hideous dancer I’ve ever seen in my life,” she said. “This guy is sweating all over me like it was raining, basically everywhere, and I was just like grossed out by that. But I knew I had to keep him happy because that’s what … Jeffrey would expect from me. “
