A new ITV documentary aired last night documenting the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, and it was deeply uncomfortable watching to say the least.
Good Morning Britain’s Ranvir Singh unravelled the story of billionaire’s daughter Ghislaine Maxwell and how she became a close associate with convicted paedophile financier Jeffrey, touching upon the pair’s friendship with Prince Andrew – who is now finding himself facing charges in a civil court (the Duke of York has vehemently denied any wrongdoing).
Singh interviewed close associates of Maxwell and Epstein, with Ghislaine’s brother, Ian, coming to his convicted sex trafficker sister’s defence.

“I’m just damn angry, I don’t see how anyone, anyone looking at this can not feel that way. It’s just wrong,” he said, tearing up.
“I have devoted a lot of my time, as have my brothers and sisters, to help. We believe her, we love her, and we hope that she will get the justice that she definitely deserves.”
While Ian appeared emotional on screen, viewers were left unconvinced by his display, with many accusing him of faking his tears.
Taking to Twitter, one person wrote: “Ian Maxwell desperately trying to do a fake cry. Pathetic mate. Get in the bin.”
Another sarcastic viewer added: “Give Ian Maxwell an Oscar.”
A third added: “How dare Ian Maxwell shed tears for his predatory sister!” and a fourth agreed: “His interview shows how deluded the family is…”
Meanwhile, a fifth viewer could feel themselves being angered by Ian’s presence: “Watching Ian Maxwell blubbering over his sister and the perceived lack of justice she received
and feeling incredulous, and a six person thought it was “wrong” that Ian was even allowed on the programme at all.
Maxwell is due to be sentenced for her multiple charges of sex trafficking in June.
