‘Celebrity Big Brother’ host Emma Willis and ‘Bit On The Side’ presenter Rylan Clark have won praise following Friday night’s shows, which saw them both give evictee Winston McKenzie a much-needed grilling.
The controversial housemate was given the boot during the first eviction of the series, and as promised, Emma didn’t hold back during her interview with the wannabe politician, which you can see here.
Emma wasted no time in getting to the matters which have angered many viewers, questioning Winston on his controversial views about gay couples adopting children.
In Friday’s show viewers saw Angie Bowie tear the the wannabe politician apart over his views, and the presenter made her stance clear during her post-eviction chat with Winston, who tried to explain himself by stating: "People are entitled to their opinions. I'm being portrayed as a people hater.
“There are people in life who are gay and they've fought long and hard for their rights and I respect that. We live in a democratic society and we have the right to our opinions."
Emma wasn’t happy though, and hit back, explaining: "It's not that people think you shouldn’t have opinions. It’s comparing adoption to child abuse - that is very offensive."
When Winston then attempted to use his Christianity as justification, Emma interrupted, stating: "That doesn’t come into it."
Bringing the interview to a conclusion, the host said: “It's sad people still think that it's OK [to believe gay couples can’t adopt]. You're discounting such a large part of the population."
Rylan also gave as good as he got on ‘CBBBOTS’, when he asked Winston straight: “Should I be able to adopt?”
The former Ukip candidate struggled for a response, stating: “Well, it wouldn't upset me because we live in a democracy.
“If that is what you want to do then do it. Live your life according to whatever. Feel free to do that. I won’t campaign against you.”
Rylan and Emma both won plaudits from viewers on Twitter, who praised their interviews:
