Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Ryan Thomas reacts to Roxanne Pallett 'altercation'

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2018

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."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.
