It came after Virginia Roberts Giuffre, who was widely trafficked by Epstein, claimed she was flown to London and forced to have sex with the Duke when she was 17.

The Duke insisted he had “no recollection” of meeting Ms Giuffre and said he was at Pizza Express in Woking on the night in question.

Asked about Ms Giuffre’s claim that he was sweating “all over” her that evening in Tramp nightclub, Mayfair, he revealed that he did not sweat owing to a “peculiar medical condition”.

Ms Giuffre brought a civil claim of sexual assault against the Duke, which was settled out of court earlier this year. The Duke has always strongly denied the claims and accepted no liability in the settlement.
