Emma Willis was praised as a “powerhouse” by viewers after her interview with Roxanne Pallett, who left the show after accusing Ryan Thomas of “punching” her – before quickly apologising and stating she was wrong after viewing the footage herself.
Following her exit from the house, Emma was given the opportunity to interview the Emmerdale actress – and did not hold back with her fiery questions and cutting comments.
After the interview, her doting husband Matt, who she wed in 2008, publicly praised his gorgeous other half with one simple message.
“Love my wife!!!” he wrote to his 391,000 followers, and was met with agreement from hundreds of fans.
“She absolutely smashed it! Absolute queen,” one fan wrote, while another added: “What a woman! She hasn’t gone easy on Roxanne or Jermaine and she so easily could have. Plus she’s freaking hot…”.
“Omg she is a legend, hero and rockstar in my eyes. Did what she does best x,” another wrote.
Roxanne appeared in a pre-recorded interview on Monday’s show, which initially irked viewers who wanted her to be questioned live on the Channel 5 series.
She sensationally quit the bungalow this weekend after alleging Ryan had punched her in the ribs and treated her akin to a punch bag, before branding the actor a “woman beater”.
Yet the 10 minute chat on the first of two CBB episodes on Monday saw host Emma not pull any punches, as she grilled the 35 year old, warning her: “It’s very easy to say sorry but to really mean it is a different thing.”
During her no-frills chat, filmed earlier today, Emma told: “You could have ruined him.”

Roxanne, who looked troubled but did not cry, said: “I am the most hated girl in Britain. It is a lot to deal with.”
Trying to open her heart she surmised: “I am crippled with emotion and shame, that I would have put someone in that position. I am devastated and I’m sorry.”
She added: “How it felt it hurt. I can’t prove a feeling no-one can. The more I thought, I convinced myself he meant to do that.”
