Brittany Higgins faces fresh grilling after blowing up during emotional day in the witness box where she admitted a series of lies she told about the night she was allegedly raped by Bruce Lehrmann

Bruce Lehrmann is suing Lisa Wilkinson and Network 10 in federal court over her 2021 interview with Brittany Higgins where she alleged he raped her at Parliament House in 2019.

Although his name was not given, he claims friends and former colleagues were able to identify him as the alleged rapist.

He has consistently maintained his innocence.

The trial began on November 22 and Mr Lehrmann gave evidence over five days.

Brittany Higgins began her primary examination Tuesday afternoon. On Wednesday, she described her alleged rape in graphic detail.

Her cross-examination began Thursday and continues Friday.
