Ms Roberts, 35, is expected to use the Panorama special to restate her claim that Andrew had sex with her when she was 17 after being trafficked by Jeffrey Epstein.

  'Disastrous' and 'excruciating': Reaction to Prince Andrew's interview "Disastrous" and "excruciating" are just some of the words being used to describe an unprecedented interview given by Prince Andrew to address his friendship with American sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. The Duke of York was grilled on the BBC's Newsnight about his links to the convicted paedophile, who died in prison earlier this year, and allegations that he had sex with a 17-year-old girl.

'Furious' claim denied

The BBC denied claims that Roberts was “furious” that Andrew’s interview was aired before Panorama.

The broadcaster planned to air the Panorama before Christmas and the episode will now be screened “at the earliest opportunity” in December. Roberts may be tempted to given an “exclusive” to another outlet if she feels the episode is being delayed.

She is keen to speak out and counter the Prince’s claim that he was at a Pizza Express in Woking with daughter Beatrice on the evening she says he had sex with her at the Belgravia house of socialite Ghislaine Maxwell.

Beatrice wedding hit

Princess Beatrice’s wedding to property tycoon Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi could become “collateral damage” in the fallout from the Duke of York’s interview disaster.

Prince Andrew’s eldest daughter got engaged to the wealthy Italian last year. No date has been set for the nuptials but the couple said it would take place next year.

Part of the motivation for the Duke’s televised grilling was to “clear his name” ahead of Beatrice’s wedding so that he could walk her down the aisle with his “head held high,” friends say.

Instead, he may have inadvertently tainted her big day.
