Ryan Thomas has reacted to last night's 'incident' with Roxanne Pallett on Celebrity Big Brother.
There was a controversial 'altercation' between Roxanne and Ryan in Thursday's highlights show. Ryan was given a formal warning by Big Brother 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 with many even calling for her to be removed from the house.
In tonight's highlights, Ryan has a heart to heart with Sally Morgan about Roxanne and the incident.
"The house is breaking her," declares Sally. "You'd think she's the strongest, but it's breaking her."
Ryan says: "It gets to everyone, it's a lonely place. As much as there are people in here, it's lonely. It's not your family or friends you've grown up with. It's a super lonely place."
He continues: "It's all heightened in here. When they [Big Brother] speak to me, when they were telling me, it was so minute, but it makes me not want to be here.
"When they see me, they know I'm not a bad person. I'm not causing anyone any harm in here at all. So when they pick up ons something that's nothing that's turned into something massive. I'm a soft guy, I don't ever mean any harm to anyone."
However, Ryan concludes: "But I'm not a quitter though, that's the one thing I'm not."
Meanwhile, Roxanne tells Ben Jardine her side of the story.
They hide in the bathroom as she accuses: "Ryan punched me, it wasn't play fighting. He punched me repeatedly in my ribs here.
"I was in so much pain, it was intentional to hurt. It was so aggressive."
