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.
