Celebrity Big Brother fans want housemates to see 'punchgate' footage

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2018

Celebrity Big Brother fans have begged show bosses to play footage of 'punchgate' to the housemates.

It was announced on Saturday morning that Roxanne had quit Celebrity Big Brother in the wake of her clash with Ryan Thomas.

Things started last week following a controversial 'altercation' between the pair in Thursday's show. Ryan was given a warning by Big Brother for 'unwanted physical contact' after Roxanne complained that he had been 'violent' towards her.

However the vast majority of viewers felt Roxanne overreacted to the incident. Last night's episode also saw the housemates turn on Roxanne and her behaviour in the house, while Ryan was left in tears by her accusations.

Roxanne ended up leaving after Ben Jardine's eviction saw her booed by the crowd.

She told Big Brother: "I don't know what I've done. Ben's gone. I heard chants outside and the majority of this house don't want to sit near me. You think you've got friends and then they've gone. Ben was my only friend. No one likes me. What happens when you're yourself and no one likes you?"

Big Brother recommended that Roxanne sleep on the night's events but Roxanne sobbed: "How am I going to get through the rest of this s**t now Ben's gone?

"I want to go home. I'm done. I'd rather work in a corner shop for the rest of my life than put myself through this. I don't need the fame or the fortune this bad. I'm going home, I need out. I need to go."

During the episode, fans demanded that housemates were shown footage of the incident between Roxy and Ryan.

Those who made the demands included Bit On The Side's Rylan Clark-Neal who tweeted: "I’m gonna get in trouble for this , I’m all for no interfering no outside contact etc .... BUT SHOW THE HOUSEMATES THE FOOTAGE. There I’ve said it. Praying they will."

Reality star Ferne McCann posted: "I am so outraged by this whole Roxanne & Ryan situation still. To see Ryan cry like that!!! The producers should tell him that it’s all ok and show the house the footage."

And Emmerdale and Corrie actress Hayley Tamaddon added: "Please #CBB I beg you.... play the housemates the god damn footage."

A spokesperson for Roxanne said: "Roxanne decided to leave the CBB house late last night after deliberating for two days with some sensitive issues she felt strongly about. She has now been reunited with her fiancé and family and thanks everyone for their support during her time in the show."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.
