RYAN THOMAS WINS CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER 0 241

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.”

CATHY SHIPTON QUITS CASUALTY ROLE 0 16

Cathy Shipton, who plays Casualty’s Lisa ‘Duffy’ Duffin, has announced she will be leaving the BBC One continuing drama, 33 years after first appearing on screen in Casualty’s pilot episode in 1986.

Appearing in over 350 episodes, Cathy is one of show’s longest-serving cast members. Whilst audiences have seen Duffy come and go in the Emergency Department throughout the years, today it is announced that she will make her final departure on screen next year.

Throughout the show’s history, Duffy’s storylines have allowed the programme to explore important and significant topics such as sexual assault, HIV, suicide, grief, single parenthood, humanitarianism, mental health and most recently, dementia.

Cathy Shipton says: “Walking in Duffy’s shoes through the years has taught me so much for which I’ll be forever grateful. I’m honoured and humbled to have played this inspiring woman. With sadness, but a sense of completion, l say goodbye.”

Simon Harper, Executive Producer of Casualty and Holby City, says: “Cathy’s enormous contribution has not just been to Casualty but also to the national consciousness and the British television drama landscape. She has made Duffy into a comforting Saturday night icon, the caring, ideal NHS nurse millions grew up with – and whom you’d want to be looked after by in times of need.

“She’s given us some of our most unforgettable stories and moments, not least of late in her heart-rending dementia storyline, and I simply cannot thank her enough.”

Cathy will be appear on screen as Duffy until early 2020.
