Ryan Thomas has been left in tears on Celebrity Big Brother 2018.

It follows a controversial 'altercation' between himself and Roxanne Pallett in Thursday night's show show. Ryan was given a warning by Big Brother for 'unwanted physical contact' after Roxanne complained that he had been 'violent' towards her.


She claimed in the Diary Room: "I'm just a little bit in shock. I went from being upset to angry now. He actually punched me like a boxer would punch a bag. It wasn't banter, it wasn't a joke."

However the vast majority of viewers felt Roxanne overreacted to Ryan's play fighting, with many even calling for her to be removed from the house.

The outrage aimed at Roxanne continued during Friday's episode, where she doubled down on her claims and branded Ryan 'aggressive' and accused him of 'assaulting' her.

She told Big Brother in the Diary Room that Ryan's warning was "not good enough", as she explained: "I don't feel very comfortable or happy at the moment because I slept separately last night because I felt uncomfortable because Ryan assaulted me and is still here."

Later, Ryan and Roxanne had tried to clear the air, with Ryan telling her: "I promise you've got it wrong. Let's put it to bed."

Roxanne replied: "I just felt shocked and it threw me. I'm not questioning your integrity."


Ryan added as the pair shook hands: "Let's just sort it out, make everyone else smile and we can move forward."

But following the live eviction, Ryan was in tears.

"I don't want to win, I just don't want to come out of here and my life to be in tatters," he told some of the other housemates.

Sally Morgan tried to encourage Ryan and said that the public would have his back.

"You define what it means to be a gentleman," supported Hardeep. "You've carried yourself with grace and dignity."

Meanwhile, Roxanne spent the night on the floor of the storeroom alone.

Outside the house and evicted housemate Ben Jardine was left shocked after seeing footage of Roxanne and Ryan's 'altercation'.


Ben said: "It breaks my heart...Now I feel like I've been mugged right off...I always fall for it, don't I...That's not what I got told."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 airs nightly on Channel 5.
