GHISLAINE MAXWELL will dish the dirt on powerful people linked to paedophile Jeffrey Epstein when she goes on trial accused of trafficking minors, claims the producer of a new documentary series.

The British socialite — who allegedly recruited teenage girls to be sexually abused by US billionaire Epstein — has ‘a lot of information’, said Bob Friedman.

‘We believe certain people will be outed as a result of this,’ he said.

‘We think this goes way beyond the assaults and many of the things we’ve heard about — the context of these relationships with her, this world of extreme power and wealth and connections.’

Maxwell, 58, denies the charges and is being held in custody. Her ex-boyfriend Epstein, who died in jail last year, counted Donald Trump among his wide circle of friends. Prince Andrew, who denies any wrongdoing, has retired from public life after an alleged Epstein victim said he made her have sex with the royal. There is huge speculation as to what Epstein’s friends knew of his activities.

One ex-pal of Maxwell’s, Christopher Mason, said he never had suspicions but she was ‘mysterious’ and said things like: ‘I have to dash, I’m meeting Bill Clinton.’
