My very dear and special pal Andy; AT LAST, CATRINA TALKS OF PRINCE.

Sexy Catrina Skepper finally admitted yesterday what Daily Mirror readers already knew . . . she is fondly consoling newly-divorced Prince Andrew.

The leggy blonde spoke out when she was interviewed for BBC TV's Good Morning - a programme on which she appears as a showbiz reporter.

Presenter Nick Owen asked whether she had a "very close relationship'' with Andrew, as the Mirror had disclosed earlier this week.

She replied: "I have a very close friendship. Andrew is a very dear and a very special friend.''

Catrina, 33, was asked: "So have you been comforting him?"

Laughing, she replied: "Trying to . . . but he has got some other comforts in his life."

Pressed on whether she and the 36-year-old prince were firm friends, she replied: "Very, very good mates.''

She indicated that she would offer a shoulder for him to cry on - and a sympathetic ear for any problems.

But she added: "I never stop talking so he never gets the chance to speak."

As a model, Catrina starred in ads for Cadbury's Flake and Pretty Polly stockings.

As a pal, she has dined discreetly with Andrew at his Sunninghill Park home. And she was on the phone to him after news broke about his marriage to Fergie ending in divorce last Wednesday.

A friend of Catrina said yesterday: "They have been speaking a lot, often late into the night. Sometimes she calls him, sometimes he phones her."

I have learned that Catrina's Italian boyfriend Alessandro Guerrini Maraldi - investor in a London wine bar - is unhappy about reports linking her to Andrew.
