Amanda Knox has been interviewed on British television for the first time.

Speaking to Lorraine Kelly on ITV Daybreak, she explained why she wouldn't be going back to Italy for a retrial in the Meredith Kercher murder case.

Outlining her reasons, Knox said: "I've already been there for the trial, I've already given my testimony, and so what I could give to the trial has already been done. I can't afford to back there. I'm in school. And the major thing is that I was already wrongfully imprisoned in that country, so the risk of that happening again is enough to dissuade me from being present."
