ROXANNE PALLETT LEAVES CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER HOUSE AFTER RYAN THOMAS “FIGHT” 1 93

Roxanne Pallet has left the Celebrity Big Brother house after a row over an alleged punch by another contestant, Channel 5 says.

A CBB spokesman said: “Roxanne has decided to leave the BB House. The remaining housemates have been informed.”

The departure of the ex-Emmerdale star, 35, follows her claim that former Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas, 34, punched her during a play fight.

She said he punched her “repeatedly, unprovoked”, adding in tears: “He actually punched me like a boxer would punch a bag. And we weren’t play fighting, there was no banter, it wasn’t a joke.”

She later slept in a separate bedroom from her fellow contestants, saying it was “because I felt uncomfortable, because Ryan assaulted me”. She also said she was “in pain all night”.

Thomas, who was given a formal warning by Big Brother, said there was no “malice” in it and that he was showing his affection.

Media watchdog OFCOM received 11,215 complaints over the episode – thought to be about Pallett’s reaction – and is deciding whether to investigate.

A backlash on social media also saw scores of Twitter users come to Ryan’s defence, with many commenting on how the allegation damages real crimes against women.

RYAN THOMAS WINS CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER 0 69

A tearful Ryan Thomas said he would forgive Roxanne Pallett as he was crowned the winner of this year’s Celebrity Big Brother.

His victory comes just days after the former Emmerdale actress accused him of punching her – causing him to be issued with a formal warning.

Pallett left the compound and was vilified on social media before apologising for her overreaction to what appeared to be no more than playfulness.

The Coronation Street actor said: “If she wants forgiveness and it makes her feel better then I would rather give her that, because I think she’s been punished enough by the public and people around her.”

Speaking about the controversy, he described himself as a “scared little boy”.

He said: “As it unravelled, as it became bigger and bigger, the thing that scared me the most was when Ben (Jardine) told me she couldn’t stay in the room with me because she was scared.

“That rang alarm bells and then the game became real life for me. I did break.”
