Donald Trump is the subject of further controversy following the emergence of an old radio show recording, in which he branded Princess Diana as 'crazy' but announced he would have had sex with her 'without hesitation'.
The billionaire businessman-turned-president was appearing in an interview on 'shock jock' DJ, Howard Stern's radio show in America in 2000.

The claims have come to light after the commander-in-chief denied saying that he could have 'nailed' the former royal, in response to the DJ's questions on the show, while he was running his presidential campaign.
Recorded in 1997, the interview came just months after Diana's death and appears to contradict the President's claims.
According to the Washington Post, the audio was posted anonymously to Factbase.
Stern initially asked Trump: "Why do people think it's egotistical of you to say you could've gotten with Lady Di? You could've gotten her, right? You could've nailed her."
Donald Trump replied: "I think I could have."
The two men then went on the joke about giving Lady Diana a HIV test (following her charitable work to help fight the disease).
In another interview three years later, Trump spoke of the 'beauty' of the former Princess, a transcript of which is below:
Trump: "I think she is magnificent, Lady Di was truly a woman with great beauty. I met with her a couple of times..."
Presenter: "Would you have slept with her?"
Trump: "Without hesitation. There's a truth to that...she was really beautiful and people don't realise how beautiful. She was super model beautiful. She had the height, she had the beauty, she had the skin, the whole thing. She was crazy, but these are minor details."
Then in 2015, TV presenter Selina Scott claimed that Trump had become obsessed with Diana, to the point of 'stalking' her and giving her 'the creeps'.
In a Sunday Times article in 2015, Scott wrote: "He bombarded Diana at Kensington Palace with massive bouquets, each worth hundreds of pounds.
"Trump clearly saw Diana as the ultimate trophy wife. As the roses and orchids piled up at her apartment she became increasingly concerned about what she should do.
"It had begun to feel as if Trump was stalking her.
"When she died in the tragic accident in Paris in 1997, Trump told friends his biggest regret was that they hadn't dated.
"He said that he always thought he had a chance of romance and would have had a 'shot' with her."
Donald Trump is yet to make any comment on the emerged recording.
