Celebrity Big Brother's Roxanne Pallett brands Ryan Thomas 'aggressive' in shock new scenes

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2018

Roxanne Pallett has doubled down on her claims about Ryan Thomas on Celebrity Big Brother 2018.

It follows 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, Roxanne tells Ben Jardine what happened - according to her.

"The reason I was in the Diary Room yesterday was because something happened in here, an altercation," Roxanne claimed. "I didn't want to tell you last night because you'd have a few rinks"

Ben then suggested they move to the bathroom: "I feel like we're getting watched."

They then hide in the toilet as Roxanne accuses: "Ryan punched me, it wasn't play fighting. He punched me repeatedly in my ribs there.

"And I didn't say anything but I was in so much pain, it was intentional to hurt. He went for it, he did it with his fists It was so aggressive."

As Ben reacts with shock, she added: "For the next hour, I was in a blur of confusion."

In a chat with Big Brother in the Diary Room, Roxanne went on to say: "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."

Ben also talks to Big Brother and says: "My head's going. My head's going seriously. I've got loads of time for Roxy.. I'm not a bad lad but I feel... on one side people are saying I'm getting played....

"My head's mashed. Am I getting mugged off here? Can you tell me that?"

Meanwhile, 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: "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."
