Dr. Phil previews his exclusive interview with Michelle Knight tonight on AC 360 at 8 p.m. ET on CNN.
(CNN) — Six months after she was freed from the “house of horrors” where Ariel Castro held her captive for 11 years, Cleveland kidnapping victim Michelle Knight is speaking out.
In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil McGraw scheduled to air Tuesday and Wednesday, Knight describes a moment when Castro trapped her in a room and tied her up with an orange extension cord….
“It’s astounding to me that she had the strength that she did,” McGraw told “Anderson Cooper 360.” “She says that she was referred to as the unbreakable one. She fought him every step of the way.”….
In August, Castro was sentenced to life in prison plus 1,000 years after he pleaded guilty to 937 counts, including murder and kidnapping….
But since their rescue, Knight hasn’t shied away from speaking out. “After 11 years, I am finally being heard, and it’s liberating,” she said in a powerful statement at Castro’s sentencing describing the abuse she endured.

Jimmy Savile harassed the wife of a record label boss at a dinner party hosted by Tony Blair at Chequers, it has been revealed.
Alan McGee said he had wanted to punch Savile after he persistently chatted up and tried to kiss his wife Kate.
The New Labour donor, who discovered rock band Oasis, said he resisted only because he did not want to embarrass Mr Blair.
Mr McGee, 53, said: ‘At dinner, Kate was between Jimmy Savile and Judi Dench. Savile started to hit on Kate, kissing his way up her arms, kissing her fingers.
‘I was thinking, “What a dirty old man” but at Chequers it’s not done to break Jimmy Savile’s nose.
‘Kate came over and said, “He’s a pervert”. He left her alone once she was next to me.’….
Powerful friends: Jimmy Saville with then Prime Minister Tony Blair in 1998. The event at Chequers took place a year later….
Savile once boasted he spent ‘11 consecutive Christmases at Chequers’, which is four miles from Stoke Mandeville Hospital, where he abused many of his victims.
He is thought to visited Chequers only once while Mr Blair was in office. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2487217/Jimmy-Savile-harassed-music-boss-wife-Chequers-dinner-party-hosted-Tony-Blair.html
