Roxanne Pallett's 'new man' publicly slammed her during CBB drama

He called her "manipulative, disgusting and attention seeking"

Roxanne Pallett was recently pictured enjoying a date with a new man, who is thought to be former model Mike Etherington.

But while the pair appeared to be getting on swimmingly as they tucked into doughnuts at Krispy Kreme in Manchester, it seems Mike hasn't always been a fan of the ex-Emmerdale actress.

According to The Sun, the property entrepreneur tweeted that he was disgusted with her behaviour when she appeared on Celebrity Big Brother and accused soap star Ryan Thomas of hitting her.

Mike's Twitter account is now set to protected but the tabloid have grabs of his tweets posted in 2018, in which he slams "manipulative, disgusting, attention seeking women who fake abuse".

He shared his views as he retweeted a comment from another Twitter user who branded Roxanne a "manipulative, attention-seeking drama queen".

Roxanne faced a barrage of Tweets like this when she left the CBB house in shame last year.

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

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.

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

She was initially supported by her fiance Lee Walton but they split in January, according to reports.
