Victoria's Secret boss Les Wexner said today he is “embarrassed” by his relationship with “depraved” money manager Jeffrey Epstein.

The 82-year-old billionaire was a client of Epstein's for many years.

Wexner was speaking at L Brands’ investor day in Ohio.

The chief executive said he had been “taken advantage of” by Epstein and said his behaviour was “abhorrent”.

It was “something that I’m embarrassed I was even close to,” he added.
