Tonight is the night we finally get to see Prince Andrew: The Musical.
The hour-long extravaganza sees a host of comedians and drag queens skewer the disgraced Royal over his relationship with dead paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and his nightmare interview with Emily Maitlis. Here's what's in store:
Prince Andrew was forced to step back from royal duties in 2019 following allegations of sexual assault that were made against him.
Virginia Giuffre, who was abused by Epstein, claimed that Andrew had sex with her when she was 17 years old.
The Duke denied any such meetings with Ms Giuffre, and even took part in a special Newsnight interview with Maitlis.
He claimed that while he knew he shouldn't have had such a close relationship with Epstein, he had done nothing wrong and doesn't remember dancing with Ms Giuffre at London nightclub Tramp, as she had claimed.
In her testimony of that night, Ms Giuffre claimed that Andrew began sweating profusely.
However, the Prince told Maitlis that that could not have been possible, because he is incapable of sweating due to a medical condition brought about by stress during the Falklands War.
Andrew also said that on the day he was supposed to have been out clubbing with Ms Giuffre, he was at one of his daughter's birthday parties at a Pizza Express in Woking - Channel 4 even sent a mobile billboard down to the restaurant to promote the musical.
The whole affair caused a great deal of embarrassment for Andrew and the rest of the Royal Family.
The prince later settled the US sexual assault case out of court, reportedly paying Ms Giuffre £12 million.
While he continued to deny any wrongdoing, Andrew was ordered to step down from royal duties.
In the film, Prince Andrew will be played by Kieran Hodgson, Maitlis by comedian Emma Sidi, and Harry Enfield takes on the role of Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Munya Chawawa and Joe Wilkinson will also feature.
It will include a host of musical numbers, including 'I Nailed It', which centres on Andrews confidence following his Newsnight interview, and ‘Will You Be My Ex-Wife’, a romantic duet that's sung by Andrew and Sarah Ferguson'.
Kieran Hodgson said: "The story of Prince Andrew is tragedy and farce rolled into one, so why not add 'musical' for good measure? Some might find the prospect of writing and performing their first TV musical a tad daunting....
"Not me. I found it completely terrifying. But we've pulled out all the stops, put every penny on screen and let rip at an institution that would perhaps prefer us to forget about all this. Also, I'm on a trampoline for a bit. Enjoy, world!”
Prince Andrew: The Musical is on Channel 4 tonight at 9pm.
