Roxanne Pallett called out by former co-stars after Celebrity Big Brother

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2018

Roxanne Pallett has been called out by a number of former Emmerdale co-stars following Celebrity Big Brother.

It was announced on Saturday morning that Roxanne had quit Celebrity Big Brother after two weeks inside the house.

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."

Roxanne left in the wake of her clash with Ryan Thomas. Things kicked off last week after 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 Ryan's play fighting, with many even calling for her to be removed from the house. Ofcom received over 11,000 complaints about the incident.

As well as CBB fans, Roxanne's former co-stars have been standing up for Ryan.

Kelvin Fletcher, who played Roxanne's on-screen husband in Emmerdale, tweeted: "She. Is. Evil. #CBB. She’s not ‘mentally ill’ or in need of ‘help’. That denounces that people with actual mental health issues are as vindictive and menacing as her.

"They are not. There is a big difference. That was calculated and manipulative beyond belief. Ryan ❤️."

Many others posted cryptic 'Karma' tweets when Roxanne departed.

Verity Rushworth tweeted: "Karma’s a b***h..... #CBB #Ryantowin xx."

Adele Silva said: "Sometimes it takes a long long time to wait for karma or to see what someone’s really capable of - unfortunately good people get caught up in it ..."

And Hayley Tamaddon shred: "I’ve known @ryanjamesthomas quite a few years. He is genuinely one the kindest, warmest, funniest, happiest fellas I’ve met. And I’ve never come across a single person that doesn’t think the same. We love you Ry!"

Actor Michael Keogh added: "By the despicable & covert behaviour of @RoxannePallett We all have a responsibility to expose lies & manipulative individuals. Having worked with her 10 yrs ago her behaviour is consistent & there is a pattern to it. She needs to be held accountable for her actions/behaviour."

Daniel Brocklebank continued: "Finally the general public are privy to what those of us that were unfortunate enough to work with her in the past already knew. "PS: @ryanjamesthomas is a lovely chap.#karma #CBB."

Meanwhile, actor Sam Attwater accused Roxanne of making up claims against himself when they were on tour together.

"I can not wait for @bbuk tonight. Im so glad that Roxanne’s true personality is coming out," he wrote on Twitter on Friday. "She did this to me on Rocky Horror tour. Except she hit me and ran off stage saying I’d hit her!

"She’s not well and shouldn’t be in there. Anyone who has worked with her knows. #dangerous.

"I feel incredibly sorry for @ryanjamesthomas that he can’t escape Roxanne. I was lucky enough to avoid her but he’s stuck in a house with her."

Roxanne will be interviewed on Celebrity Big Brother tonight at 9PM on Channel 5 to give her side of the story.
