Tonight on ITV as a part of the Crime and Punishment series Susanna Reid travels to america to see child murders for her show Children Who Kill.
Now talking about filming the series Susanna has admitted that it was the ‘toughest challenge’ of her career.
In a interview with The Sun the presenter said:
“I have never been as distressed as I was filming that documentary.
“I’ve been affected by all the documentaries I’ve done but the thing about this is the child who was murdered was so young. I was in tears doing the interviews — and I found everything about meeting Phillips upsetting, distressing and heart-breaking.”
She then continued to say:
“I did find myself with a kind of emotional cloud a lot of the time.
“It took quite a long time after I got back from the States to clear my mind — the first thing I did was hug my kids a little tighter.”
It really must have been so hard for her to come close to these murders durng the filming of the series.
