Never-before-seen video footage showing a sweaty Prince Andrew being openly affectionate with a bevy of young women while partying in the late 2000s has been unearthed – just hours after his ‘car crash’ interview with the BBC.
The Prince insisted in his sit-down with Emily Maitlis that he did not sweat or indulge in public displays of affection with women while defending himself against claims he slept with Jeffrey Epstein’s sex slave Virginia Roberts.
He seemed to cast doubts on the authenticity of a photo which shows him with his arm around Miss Roberts’ waist.
However, the newly-discovered footage, published exclusively by the MailOnline, shows Andrew looking dishevelled and sweaty as he wanders around several raucous parties on the French Riviera.
Photos also show him embracing a string of beautiful women publicly, appearing not to care about the cameras tracking his every move.
Filmed during the Prince’s ‘mid-life crisis’ period, the footage appears to show the Duke of York living up to his controversial ‘Randy Andy’ nickname.
In one clip from July 2008 – just weeks after his disgraced friend Epstein admitted trafficking an underage girl – Andrew, now 59, is seen leaving a party with a troupe of beautiful women.
That night he was also filmed chatting with Polish-born socialite Beata Bohman – who went on to make headlines when she was arrested for shoplifting an $11,000 fur-lined scarf in New York.
In another infamous set of pictures taken on the French Riviera in July 2007, the Prince looks wild-eyed as he parties with American socialite Chris Von Aspen.

More clips from 2008 show him wandering around a party thrown by wine tycoon Claude Ott, heading to the dance floor with two women as techno music plays out.
The Prince appears to look worse for wear as he enjoys the party, hair dishevelled and shirt untucked.
A photographer captured a snap of him dancing at close quarters at the party with a woman named at the time as Libyan model Nadia Boejna.
The previous summer Andrew was pictured cozying up to Canadian model Pascale Bourbeau at a bash he attended alongside his eldest daughter Princess Beatrice.
He appears to put his hand on Pascale’s rear as they stand close together at the home of billionaire fire extinguisher magnate Tony Murray.

At one point, Andrew was pictured tensely looking at his mobile phone alongside a bald man who was described by onlookers as his ‘fixer’.
Later, he headed to a marina at Murray’s mansion and got on a boat accompanied by ‘five or six women’ while Beatrice, now 31, left separately, according to a witness.
A former Saint-Tropez reveler told Mail Online: ‘These were really crazy years for Andrew.
‘He was clearly having a full-blown midlife crisis. He would have been 47 or 48 at the time, divorced from Sarah Ferguson, and basking in the attention he got from young women.
‘These were private parties held at mansions so I guess he felt he could let his guard down.
‘Things can get quite loose in Saint-Tropez. There were lots of beautiful young women looking for rich men.
‘People would often go off to the toilets to do drugs or for oral sex.
‘That was the best time to party in Saint-Tropez. Social media hadn’t really taken off and most people didn’t have cameras on their phone yet so people could just go and have fun.
‘Lots of the girls gravitated towards Andrew – royalty has that effect on the kind of women who flock to Saint-Tropez.’
Andrew’s partying days have come under increased scrutiny recently due to his controversial relationship with Epstein, who killed himself aged 66 in a New York jail cell in August after being arrested on federal sex trafficking charges.

Following Epstein’s death, the Prince released a statement denying he ever saw or suspected any criminal behavior by the wealthy financier.
However, he has faced a barrage of claims, including from Ms Roberts who accuse the Duke of York of sleeping with her while she was underage.
The row was thrown further into the spotlight last night after Andrew’s ‘car crash’ BBC interview.
The ‘no holds barred’ interview saw the Prince quizzed on his relationship with Epstein – and he again denied ever having sex with the financier’s ‘sex slave’ Ms Roberts.
The Duke faced a flurry of questions about his links to the paedophile, who was found dead aged 66 earlier this year in a New York prison cell while being held on sex trafficking charges.
Andrew maintained he does not recall meeting Ms Roberts and said he did not spend time with her at Tramp Nightclub in London on March 10, 2001, after which she claims the pair first had sex.

He denied he slept with her on three separate occasions, saying the encounter in 2001 did not happen because he had taken his daughter Princess Beatrice to Pizza Express in Woking for a party, and they spent the rest of the day together.
As part of his defence, he disputed claims that he was sweating on the night he partied with Ms Roberts.
Andrew said: ‘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.
‘I didn’t sweat at the time because I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenalin in the Falkland’s War when I was shot at and it was almost impossible for me to sweat.
‘And it’s only because I have done a number of things in the recent past that I am starting to be able to do that again. So I’m afraid to say that there’s a medical condition that says that I didn’t do it.’
He added: ‘I’ve no recollection of ever meeting her, I’m almost, in fact I’m convinced that I was never in Tramps with her.
‘There are a number of things that are wrong with that story, one of which is that I don’t know where the bar is in Tramps.
‘I don’t drink, I don’t think I’ve ever bought a drink in Tramps whenever I was there.’
The latest video and pictures have put Andrew under yet more scrutiny.
Pictures from top model Heidi Klum’s 2000 Halloween party show him hanging out with Epstein’s alleged co-conspirator Ghislaine Maxwell.
The pair can be seen together at the ‘Hookers and Pimps’-themed party in New York City.
In this July 2008 party, Andrew was filmed wandering around as loud techno music blared. It was hosted by wine tycoon Claude Ott. Andrew was also pictured dancing with a woman at close quarters and she was identified at the time as Libyan model Nadia Boejna

The now infamous picture showing the Prince and Maxwell with alleged ‘teen sex slave’ Virginia Roberts is thought to have been taken the following year by Epstein in London.
Virginia, 35, alleges Epstein and Maxwell, 57, directed her to have sex three times with Andrew – claims that both he and Maxwell vehemently deny.
Donald Trump and his then-girlfriend Melania Knauss were also pictured posing with Klum at the party.
In the photos from the Halloween party, Andrew can be seen chatting to Klum, now 46.

An onlooker said: ‘Chris was buzzed from drinking and had met Andrew before so she approached him.
‘She was a real party girl back then and went to all the celebrity parties in New York, LA, Saint-Tropez and Monaco.
‘Chris later claimed she hooked up with Andrew and you can see in the pictures that he was having a great time with her.
‘He had a wild look in his eye – you can see that in the pictures too.
‘Chris was going out with Prince Albert of Monaco’s right-hand man Bruno Philipponnat and got into trouble with him when the pictures came out.’
