I wonder what he so happy about he thinks he got away with it. I can already see the rehabilitation of Prince Andrew.
Actor John Challis, best known for playing Boycie in the BBC comedy series Only Fools And Horses, has defended the Duke of York, saying he should be ‘given a chance to actually make things better’.
Speaking on Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine show, the performer said: ‘I think the poor man’s made an awful lot of mistakes which he now regrets, do you know, obviously.
‘And what he’s done, retiring and so on from the public gaze, I think is exactly what should happen but I think he should be given a break because, after all, nothing’s been proved, has it? There is no proof.’
He went on to highlight Andrew’s service record with the Royal Navy, flying helicopters during the Falklands Conflict in 1982, and said: ‘I think he should be given a chance to actually make things better.’
Woman who claims Prince Andrew groped her breast after Jeffrey Epstein flew her to New York to entertain the duke says she will testify to the FBI
A woman who claimed that Prince Andrew groped her breasts with a Spitting Image puppet of himself revealed today she now is ready to go to the FBI about him.
Johanna Sjoberg says she is willing to testify under oath against the Duke of York and tell US agents all she knows about the royal’s long friendship with paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
The 39-year-old is the second Epstein victim to claim that Andrew had sexual contact with her while on his knee at the billionaire’s New York home when she was 21.
Ms Sjoberg has accused the duke of groping her by taking a Spitting Image puppet of himself and placing its hand on her breast after being jetted to the US by Epstein to ‘entertain’ the prince in around 2001.
The bad news for Andrew came as it was revealed he is to ‘stand back’ from his charity patronages in a sign of his deepening humiliation over the Epstein scandal – as experts said today: ‘He’s absolutely finished’.
Johanna’s decision to speak out a decade ago is said to have inspired Virginia Roberts to reveal allegations Andrew had sex with her three times when she was 17.
