Roxanne Pallet has reportedly found love again with American firefighter Jason Carrion.

In photos obtained by The Sun, Roxanne is pictured with Jason as they strolled around the Big Apple.

According to the publication, Roxanne and Jason have been working out together at the gym and hanging out with his sister.

The former Emmerdale star is reportedly currently living with Jason and his flatmate, who is also a New York firefighter.

Ent Daily has contacted reps for Roxanne for comment.

It comes after Roxanne wrongly accused ex-Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas of punching her during last year's CBB.

The 36-year-old later publicly apologised for accusing Ryan of being a "woman beater" after he tried to engage her in a play fight.

I had feelings of paranoia, and feared something bad would happen to me.

More than 25,000 Big Brother fans complained to TV watchdog Ofcom about the incident, which left Ryan in tears in the Diary Room.

Ryan went on to win the Channel 5 show, while Roxanne has been struggling to rebuild her career and her reputation.

Due to an intense public backlash and the flurry of media coverage, she deleted her social media and split with Lee.

In an interview given since the scandal, she said the ordeal left her so fragile, she even considered taking her own life.

Meanwhile, speaking to Closer magazine in June, Roxanne opened up about being diagnosed with PTSD.

She said: "All my insecurities were heightened. I had feelings of paranoia, and feared something bad would happen to me... I was told that people were saying they wanted to throw acid in my face and that I was more hated than a murderer.

"My doctor put me on antidepressants for panic disorder and depression and I got in contact with a mental health charity."
