Emma Willis praised for her support following Matt Willis’ documentary on addiction

Those who sat down last night to watch Matt Willis’ new documentary about his battle with addiction have been praising Emma Willis for her support for her husband.

Fans have been overwhelmed by emotions following the BBC documentary Matt Willis: Fighting Addiction, taking a deep dive into the Busted singer’s battle with drugs and alcohol and the effect it has had on his relationship with his wife and family.

Emma has now been praised for her strength and support as she stood by Matt through everything, including the particularly bad moments in his journey.

The couple have been together for 20 years and share three children together, Isabella, Ace and Trixie.

Emma’s part in the documentary focused on living with someone with an addiction, with many praising her for her support but also questioning why she stuck around for it all.

In the documentary, Emma revealed she kept a documentary of Matt’s struggles over the years and noted when he was at his worst.

Going places he knew she wouldn’t find him and having more than the normal amount of drink on a night out, Emma said: “A bottle of champagne, a couple of wines, a couple of wines…another bottle of champagne, and more.”

Emma went on to admit that she was constantly worried that she would lose her husband, even worrying that Matt could relapse again ahead of Busted’s next tour as he did with the last one.

Fans have praised Emma for her strength, taking to Twitter to share their support for her.

One person wrote: “Emma Willis proving that not all superheroes wear cloaks.”

Another said: “Emma Willis. What an incredible woman and an obviously wonderful mother and wife.”

A third added: “Emma Willis is a remarkable woman not many women would have stayed in her situation. And that diary she kept was heartbreaking.”

While a fourth penned: “Crying at the @mattjwillis documentary. I only walked in five minutes ago! Incredible, honest, vulnerable strength!! @EmmaWillis I can only imagine the people they’ve saved from this.”
