Transcript for Jeffrey Epstein accuser takes on Prince Andrew in 1st TV interview
And now to the interview making low gal headlines tonight. Prince Andrew's accuser talking to the bbc. What she's now saying about this photo right here of her with the prince when she was just 17. And in the interview tonight, her plea to the British people and Buckingham palace with a response. Here's ABC's James Longman. Reporter: Tonight, Virginia Roberts Giuffre taking on prince Andrew in her first TV interview with British media. There's only one of us telling the truth, and I know that's me. Reporter: In court filings, Giuffre claims she directed by Jeffrey Epstein to have sex with the prince when she was just 17. In a sitdown with the bbc, filmed before the prince's own interview, Giuffre blasts suggestions this now infamous photo was fake. I think the world is getting sick of these ridiculous excuses. It's a real photo. I've given it to the FBI for their investigation and it's an authentic photo. There's a date on the back of it from when it was printed. Reporter: The prince himself questioned its authenticity. Nobody can prove whether or not that photograph has been doctored, but I don't recollect that photograph ever being taken. Reporter: Giuffre describes dancing with the prince that night. He is the most hideous dancer I've ever seen in my life. I mean, it was horrible, and this guy was sweating all over me. Reporter: This detail flatly denied by prince Andrew in that widely ridiculed interview. There's a slight problem with the sweating, because I have a peculiar medical condition which is that I don't sweat or I didn't sweat at the time. Reporter: Virginia Giuffre now making her own appeal to the British public. I implore the people in the uk to stand up beside me, to help me fight this fight, to not accept this as being okay. This is not some sordid sex story. This is a story of being trafficked. Reporter: David, tonight Buckingham palace says the prince unequivocally regrets his ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein. And he denies any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts, saying any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation. David? All right, James Longman in London tonight. James, thank you.
