The Duchess of York told chat show queens Oprah and Oprah Winfrey she had been drinking before she offered access to her ex-husband.
"I was completely smashed," said the clearly emotional red-head. "I started drinking on the morning of my wedding. I was sloshed when I said I do to Prince Whatshisname, tanked when I agreed to It's A Knockout, and plastered when that man sucked my toes. In fact, I can't remember any of the past twenty years. I was hammered."
Secretly-filmed News of the World footage appears to show the Duchess, 50, offering a reporter intimate access to the Duke of York in return for several rum & cokes and a half pint of own-brand vodka.
In the footage released to People magazine, she tells Winfrey: "I haven't faced the devil - Pa-in-Law - in the face because I was trousered.
"So I'm - hic! - aware of the fact that I've been drinking - pissed as a fart, if you want the truth - where's the mini bar, by the way? - you know, that I was not in my right place, which is usually flat on my back under the table."
She also claims she is yet to see the full video of her meeting with the reporter.
"Both of the sheiks were very polite but they never kept still. Anyhoo, bottoms up, old gals!"
