We look back at one of Colin Craig's most controversial interviews – his 'sauna session' with former TV3 journalist David Farrier.

The 2015 interview, filmed inside a hot sauna with Mr Farrier, touched on a range of topics – the 2014 election, the moon landing and fizzy drinks.

After the interview Mr Craig stepped down as Conservative Party leader amid reports it had sparked uproar within the party.

"It was humiliating for them to see him in the sauna," Newshub political editor Patrick Gower said at the time.

"He showered with his shoes on and that really was the final straw."
