Roxanne Pallett’s fiancé Lee Walton has spoken out about her close relationship with Ben Jardine in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Married at First Sight star Ben has admitted to having a crush on Roxanne and confessed his feelings for her during Monday night’s episode.
But Lee, who proposed to Roxanne just one week after meeting her, has said he isn’t worried because their relationship is “strong”.
He told New! magazine: “I’m not worried. I know she loves me and I love her and we’re strong.”
Talking about their relationship, he added: “I don’t think she would have gone in if she wasn’t 100 per cent strong about how we are.
“Nothing will change when she gets out, other than we’ll be getting married.”
Lee said he knew Roxanne would form the greatest bond with Ben because they are similar.

During Monday night’s show, Ben declared his love for Roxanne even though she’s repeatedly said she’s happily engaged to Lee.
Viewers saw Ben confess his feelings for her during the Public Eye task, in which the housemates had to talk about their sins in a confession box.
Ben said: “I have got feelings for Roxy and I’m not going to be that guy and she’s a good kid.
“I look into her eyes and I see myself. It’s just natural.”
Wanting to know what Ben’s confession was, Roxanne called him into the store room to ask him.
He told her: “Ah, baby. You know, I can’t help it. All I know is that you know [I fancy you] and I can’t help it and I’m sorry.”
Roxanne replied: “My head right now is like, it’s marshmallow. Especially after that!”
Ben then kissed her neck and whispered: “I love you, right? Sorry.”
Roxanne said: “Just, just, oi! It’s all good.”
The actress was then seen in the store room alone, kissing her engagement ring and saying: “You’re still my boyfriend.”
Meanwhile in the episode, Roxanne was left gobsmacked after Ben revealed he got another woman pregnant while he was married.
