Britain's Princess Diana's former butler is set to give a UK TV interview.
Paul Burrell - who worked for the princess for ten years until her death in 1997 - has refused to return to the UK from his Florida home since his admission that he lied at Diana's inquest, but now reportedly wants to "set the record straight."
A source revealed to Britain's Daily Express newspaper: "Paul really feels it's time he builds bridges in Britain because he knows he managed to alienate the majority of the British public.
"He knows he has made mistakes but also feels he has been treated unfairly.
"He wants the chance to be in front of the screen and give h is side of things. He'd want the interview to be filmed in America as he currently has no interest in coming back to the UK but he'd like it to be shown on the BBC and ITV.
"Paul's people are going to put out a few feelers to see what interest there is."
Paul - dubbed Diana's "rock" - was recently told he would not face perjury charges over his evidence at Diana's inquest.
Diana famously appeared on 'Panorama' following her divorce from Prince Charles to dish the dirt about her marriage.
