An interview with Ghislaine Maxwell, from her prison in Florida, will air Monday (Jan. 23) on TalkTV.

The British socialite was sentenced to 20 years in prison and a $750,000 (£604,000) fine for helping sex offender and billionaire financier Jeffrey Epstein molest teenage girls in June 2022.

In the new special, titled Ghislaine behind barsinterviews Jeremy Kyle Maxwell on topics such as Epstein – who was found dead in his prison cell in 2019 – and their mutual friend, Prince Andrew.

Kyle claims the interview is Maxwell’s first out of prison, but it isn’t. Maxwell gave an interview to Israeli-American documentary maker Daphne Barak in October.

Here’s everything we know about the interview, from when it airs to what’s expected to be about it…

What time is Ghislaine behind bars on TV?

It is an hour long and was filmed in a series of video and recorded audio phone calls from the Federal Correctional Institute Tallahassee in Florida.

Maxwell will talk about Epstein, Prince Andrew and Queen Elizabeth II in the interview, as well as her life as a prisoner 02879-509.

In an excerpt from the special, Maxwell insists that the infamous photo of Prince Andrew appearing to wrap his arm around a 17-year-old Virginia Giuffre is fake.

“It’s fake,” she says. “I don’t believe for a second that it’s real, in fact I’m sure it’s not… I’ve only seen a photocopy of it.”

Prince Andrew has also questioned the veracity of the photo, which was reportedly taken at Maxwell’s home in Mayfair.

Another clip shows Maxwell saying, “”I feel completely separate from the person people are referring to and talking about in all the different newspaper articles and TV shows and podcasts.”

What did Ghislaine Maxwell do?

Last June, Maxwell was sentenced to 20 years in prison for helping Epstein molest teenage girls.

U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan handed down the sentence in Manhattan, six months after Maxwell was convicted by a federal jury of five charges, including sex trafficking.

Judge Nathan described Maxwell’s crime as “heinous and predatory” when she sentenced her to a term that exceeded her own maximum sentence guideline of up to 19 years and eight months.

The jury found Maxwell guilty of recruiting and grooming four girls between 1994 and 2004 for sexual encounters with her ex-boyfriend Epstein.

Victim statements from eight prosecutors were released ahead of the sentencing hearing, detailing disturbing stories of how their innocence was stolen, and pleas for Maxwell to face harsh punishment.

One of the statements was read on behalf of Giuffre, who became one of Epstein’s most well-known accusers after settling a sexual assault case against Prince Andrew earlier in 2022.

“I want to be clear on one thing: Jeffrey Epstein was, without a doubt, a horrible pedophile. But I never would have met Jeffrey Epstein if it wasn’t for you,” she began, noting that she was between 16 and 19 years old when she suffered at the hands of Maxwell and Epstein. “For me, and for so many others, you have opened the door to hell.”

Prosecutors said: “Ghislaine Maxwell sexually exploited young girls for years. It’s hard to overstate the magnitude of her crimes and the damage she’s done. Her crimes demand justice.

“Not only did her behavior show a callous disregard for other people, but her practice of targeting vulnerable victims reflects her view that struggling young girls can be treated like disposable items.”

Prior to her sentencing, Maxwell said: “I deeply sympathize with all the victims in this case.

“I realize I have been convicted of helping Jeffrey Epstein commit these crimes. My association with Epstein will stain me permanently. It’s the biggest regret of my life that I ever met him.

“I believe Jeffrey Epstein has fooled everyone in his job. His victims considered him a mentor, friend, lover.

“Jeffrey Epstein should have been in front of you. In 2005. In 2009. And again in 2019. But today it’s up to me to be judged.

“I am sorry for the pain you have experienced. I hope that my conviction and harsh imprisonment will bring you peace and finality. I hope this date closes a terrible chapter.”

She added that she hoped the victims could “travel from darkness to light”.
