The former Coronation Street star had been upset over Roxanne’s allegation he punched her during what appeared to be a play fight and worried about what people on the outside world may think.

Roxanne, who quit Big Brother last week, has since apologised to Ryan and said she “got it wrong”.

Ryan couldn’t stop his tears as Psychic Sally read Scott’s letter which began: “Dear Ryan, I don’t think this is a surprise to you but it’s Scott writing this letter. You know I love a good essay!

“Honestly, bro, I can’t tell you how proud we all are of you. You have really taken yourself out of your comfort zone and, trust me, it’s been well worth it.”

While Scott did not directly reference the Roxanne allegation, he alluded to the situation by writing: “You’ve shown the nation just how amazing you really are and carried yourself so well. I know you’ll be worried about how you’re coming across but we want you to know you have absolutely nothing to worry about and everyone has seen the real you.”

Scott said Ryan’s daughter Scarlett, nine, had been shown some clips of him on Big Brother and was so proud.

He wrote: “She can’t get her head around it but she smiles from ear to ear when she sees her daddy having so much fun.”

Scott also said Ryan’s girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh is “more than proud” of him and “so happy that everyone gets to see the Ryan she knows and loves.”

He concluded: “Keep doing us proud, see you on the other side.”

Fans loved the scenes and shared their happiness on Twitter that Ryan’s mind had been eased in regards to what is happening in the outside world.

A confused and upset Ryan, who apologised and said there was no malice or anger in his actions, was given a formal warning from Big Brother, resulting in outrage among his family, friends and viewers.

Ryan’s girlfriend Lucy and his mum Gail have both called for Ryan’s warning to be revoked.

Roxanne appeared on both Jeremy Vine and Celebrity Big Brother on Monday to apologise to Ryan.

She has described herself as “the most hated girl in Britain”, saying: “For Ryan, his family, friends, colleagues and everyone I’ve affected by such an enormous reaction that could have been devastating for him, all I can say is I’m devastated and I’m sorry.

“I need to say I got it wrong and I’m human and made a nasty, massive, horrible mistake.

“I wish I had the words to say how gutted I am. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I got it wrong. The only thing I can do is go away now and figure out why I became that sensitive that I manufactured that different version in my head.

“The fact I used terminology like woman beater, assault and abuse. I can’t apologise enough.”
