Ms Giuffre alleges she was trafficked by the paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and forced to have sex with the Duke when she was 17 years old, which he denies. In the programme, entitled The Prince and the Epstein Scandal, Ms Giuffre tells how she was brought to London in 2001, introduced to Andrew and taken to Tramp nightclub.
Ms Giuffre said: “We went into the VIP section. There was no waiting in the lines obviously – you were with a prince.
“Andrew asked me what I wanted to drink, you know, and I said oh, you know, something from the bar.
“He had something clear. I know mine was vodka and then he asked me to dance.
“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, like his sweat was like it was raining basically everywhere I was just like grossed out from it but I knew I had to keep him happy because that’s what Jeffrey and Ghislaine would have expected from me.”
It comes after Andrew insisted he had “no recollection” of meeting Ms Giuffre in his recent Newsnight interview.
The Duke also claimed he had a medical condition which meant he did not sweat due to suffering an overdose of adrenaline in the Falklands War when he was shot at.
Ms Giuffre alleges she was given instructions when they left the nightclub by the socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, Epstein’s then-girlfriend.
She said: “In the car Ghislaine tells me that I have to do for Andrew what I do for Jeffrey and that just made me sick.”
Ms Giuffre said later that evening she had sex with the Duke at Maxwell’s house in Belgravia.
In tonight’s programme, which was filmed before Andrew’s television appearance, she also discusses the picture of the Duke with his arm around her waist taken at Maxwell’s home.

She said: “The people on the inside are going to keep coming up with these ridiculous excuses.
“Like his arm was elongated or the photo was doctored, or he came to New York to break up with Jeffrey Epstein. I mean, come on, I’m calling BS on this, because that’s what it is.
“He knows what happened. I know what happened and there’s only one of us telling the truth, and I know that’s me.”
Andrew stepped down from public duties last month following his car crash television interview.

He was widely criticised for failing to show remorse for his friendship with Epstein or empathy for the disgraced financier’s alleged victims during the television appearance.
Ms Giuffre claimed in court papers in Florida that she was forced to have sex with Andrew when she was aged 17, below the state’s age of consent.
Buckingham Palace has branded the allegations “false and without any foundation”, stating that “any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors” by the Duke was “categorically untrue”.

Ms Giuffre alleges Andrew slept with her on three separate occasions, twice while she was underage.
Epstein took his own life in August in a New York prison while he was being held on sex trafficking charges.
In a statement, Buckingham Palace said: “It is emphatically denied that The Duke of York had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts. Any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation.”
The Prince and the Epstein Scandal airs on BBC One tonight at 9pm.
