Roslyn Vera Britton, Richard Pelham Long

Descended from the Pelham-Clinton family (Henry Pelham-Clinton, 4th Duke of Newcastle (1785–1851) is an ancestor through her paternal grandmother), she was educated at Oxford High School and Corpus Christi College, Oxford. In 2010 she was the 2009 British Press Awards "Interviewer of the Year (broadsheet)".
In January 2012, Long interviewed the German-Irish actor Michael Fassbender. Her opening question apparently referred to the large size of the actor's penis ("That’s kind of you to say", he is quoted as saying). A section of Long's article was read to Fassbender in a subsequent interview for GQ magazine, including Long's statement that she was "quite certain that [Fassbender] would willingly show me his penis, given slightly different circumstances and a bucket of champagne," causing Fassbender to respond that "I don’t think I would touch her with a barge pole."
In April 2015 Long appeared in an episode of BBC's Have I Got News for You in which she made comments about UKIP Leader Nigel Farage. Long was defending her article about South Thanet, the constituency for which Farage was a candidate. UKIP went on to complain to Kent Police regarding the comments. However, no action was taken.
