The interview, which aired during the first episode of Monday night’s Celebrity Big Brother eviction special, featured Willis on “savage” form according to viewers, asking questions that many fans wanted answers to.
At another point of the interview, she asked directly, “Did you ever consider the implications that it would have had on him? Can you imagine if the cameras hadn’t been there? A lot of people are not buying your apology.”
The way Emma Willis grilled Roxanne was absolutely perfect, what a woman #cbb
Just watched Roxanne’s interview with Emma Willis. Emma was much better than Jeremy Vine. Her death stare throughout was superb and her ending the interview by taking her earpiece out when Roxanne cried was excellent. Go Emma! One of our finest TV presenters. #CBB
After the interview many fans were left impressed with Willis’ interviewing skills, although Willis admitted herself on Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit on the Side that the interview left her “uncomfortable.”
“It was hard, it was quite uncomfortable,” she said. “But I think that’s what was necessary, because we have watched a lot of uncomfortable TV over the last few days.
“I feel like a lot of what she said was a lot of what she said this morning. I suppose I wanted a little bit more… a little bit more out of her.”
