JEFFREY Epstein’s ‘sex slave’ accuser Virginia Roberts is set to reveal how she was allegedly “forced” into sex with Prince Andrew – a claim he denies.
Roberts will appear in a TV interview today alongside five other women who accused Epstein of sexually abusing and manipulating them when they were underage.
One of those women is ex-Playboy model and actress Anouska de Georgiou who is the first Brit to accuse Epstein of sexual abuse.
She previously told a New York hearing how Epstein “manipulated, corrupted and sexually assaulted” her in abuse that “lasted several years”.
In the sit-down TV interview with NBC, Roberts is expected to claim she was forced to have sex with Epstein and others in his powerful orbit.
Roberts, who now goes by the surname Giuffre, alleges that she slept with Prince Andrew three times – claims the royal vehemently denies.
Last month, she stood outside a court in Manhattan and delivered a message to Prince Andrew.
She said: “He knows exactly what he’s done. And I hope he comes clean about it.”

The royal has denied any wrongdoing, saying at no stage did he “witness or suspect any behaviour of the sort that subsequently led to his arrest and conviction”.
A previous Buckingham Palace statement said: “The Duke of York has been appalled by the recent reports of Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged crimes.
“His Royal Highness deplores the exploitation of any human being and the suggestion he would condone, participate in or encourage any such behaviour is abhorrent.”
Roberts’ claims were struck out of a lawsuit by a judge who branded them “immaterial”.
DEATH OF A ‘MONSTER’
In the preview for the show, Roberts revealed she was in “mourning” after finding out the paedo had killed himself in jail last month.
“It was such a shock to me. I mean when I say, ‘shock’, didn’t have the words,” Roberts said.
“I was in mourning, not because the world lost a monster.
“I was not mourning him. I wasn’t mourning the death of this man.
“I was mourning the death of my ability to hold this man accountable.”
Epstein, 66, was found dead on August 10 in his New York prison cell, where he was facing charges of sex trafficking and conspiracy.
Roberts is also expected to accuse Epstein’s alleged ‘madam’, British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, of playing a “crucial role” in the global sex trafficking ring.
She will appear in the interview alongside fellow ‘victims’ De Georgiou and Rachel Benavidez – who are both coming forward for the first time.
Accusers Jennifer Araoz, Marijke Chartouni and Chauntae Davies will also be appearing in the show.
They were part of a group of nearly two dozen Epstein accusers who shared their stories of abuse during a hearing on August 27.
In the episode, they are expected to say they believe the justice system failed them.
This is in part due to the wrist-slap plea deal Epstein copped in Florida in 2008 that let him dodge federal charges — and continue preying on victims.

Palm Beach police chief Michael Reiter, who oversaw the original local investigation into Epstein, said he couldn’t explain how the system had failed on so many levels.
“There is no explanation. I didn’t believe it back then, I don’t believe it now,” Reiter said. “It’s just unfathomable to me.”
He describes it as “the worst failure of the criminal justice system…in modern times.”
