Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Ben Jardine 'never wants to see Roxanne Pallett again'

Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2018

Celebrity Big Brother's Ben Jardine says he never wants to see Roxanne Pallett again after leaving the house.

Ben was evicted last Friday night while Roxanne walked out later that night in the wake of her 'punch' scandal with Ryan Thomas.

After finding out about all the controversy on the outside world, Ben has spoken out.

He told The Sun newspaper this week: "Roxanne made a beeline for me. It was an instant connection. She was like my shadow.

"After what she's done, I'm broken hearted. I don't want to see her again because of all this. But I want to know who the real Roxy is."

He added: "I went through the mill with that Roxanne. I'm upset and devastated by everything."

Also speaking out has been Jermaine Pennant, who was evicted last night.

"That's poor - I expected something big," he said after watching the footage back. "That's pathetic, what's she thinking? Must be some vendetta."

Meanwhile, Ryan's brother Scott has spoken out about how his family reacted to Roxanne's actions in the house.

He said on Bit On The Side: "I was sat at home literally in tears, Mum was on the phone crying. She can't get her head round it, she is watching her baby boy crying on the TV. It's been a massive test.

"He's like my dad, so to see him break down like that. It's his career, his whole life. I am just blown away by him and can't wait to give him a cuddle."

He added: "As a family we want to forgive but so much has come out of the woodwork since - and there's no smoke without fire."

In last night's live show, Roxanne spoke to Emma in a pre-recorded interview about the 'punchgate' scandal.

She said: "Watching the footage, it feels like a completely different scenario to how it felt at the time. How it felt when he did it, it hurt. I can't prove a feeling. I convinced myself he meant to do it, and when I watched it back I immediately realised... I'm more shocked at myself than anyone out there is."

Roxanne went on: "I feel devastated. It cripples me with embarrassment and shame that I could have put someone in that position. Seeing the footage of Ryan in the Diary Room distressed.

"I got it wrong. I can't apologise enough... all I can do is apologise and got it so wrong."

The actresss added: "I'm the most hated girl in Britain right now. It's the title I feel everyone has given me right now. All I can do is own it, accept it and apologise."

Celebrity Big Brother 2018 continues nightly on Channel 5.

The new series concludes next Monday, September 10 with the live final.
