After watching a clip of US interview Dianne Sawyer grilling Britney in a hard-hitting interview, Holly looked horrified.

She said: “It is extraordinary treatment of someone who is so young about something so personal, so publicly there.

“And there are calls for her to come forward and apologise for that now.

“Not only her though, there’s also Justin Timberlake and she was in a very public relationship with him at the time.

The host said: ‘People are saying he was in the wrong’

“There was the music video Cry Me A River where there was a Britney lookalike in it and there were allegations that she had cheated during this.

“Because of this documentary, that has been aired again and people are saying he was in the wrong as well.”

Justin has come under fire for his 2002 hit Cry Me A River, which shows a woman who looked like Britney cheating on him.

Holly added: “It just seems there was a lot of mistreatment of her around that time.”

One fan was delighted the issue was being discussed, tweeting: “So glad the free britney movement is finally getting spoke about on uk tv. Been a long time coming.”

While many moments from Framing Britney Spears have shocked viewers, Dianne’s now-famous interview has truly ruffled their feathers.

The one-on-one chat touched on many different aspects of Britney’s life and career, including her failed relationship with Justin Timberlake.

Diane said: “[Justin] has gone on television, and pretty much said you broke his heart. You did something that caused him so much pain, so much suffering…what did you do?”

The journalist later told Britney she had “disappointed a lot of mothers in this country.”
