If you don’t remember the one-time White House intern whose fling with President Bill ‘I did not have sex with that woman’ Clinton brought his administration to its knees, leaving US politics and the watching world open-mouthed, ask your parents to sit you down and explain.

In Vanity Fair magazine, Monica says she deeply regrets the affair, says that Bill ‘took advantage’ of her while admitting the relationship was consensual and is now breaking her media silence to ‘give a purpose’ to her past.

As reported on the BBC News website, Ms Lewinsky said she wanted to ‘help others in their darkest moments of humiliation’ by ‘getting involved with efforts on behalf of victims of online humiliation and harassment and to start speaking on this topic in public forums.’

Oh yes, that’s going to go down really well during Hillary’s pitch for the Democratic 2016 presidential nomination.
