Roxanne Pallett has QUIT the Celebrity Big Brother house following the ‘punching’ incident which has blown up this week.
A CBB spokesperson has said: “Roxanne has decided to leave the BB House. The remaining housemates have been informed.”
Details of when she exited are yet to be confirmed.
In Thursday night’s episode the former soap star accused fellow housemate Ryan Thomas of punching her like a boxer, after what he believed to be a play fighting incident in the kitchen.
She told the Diary Room: “I went from being upset to being angry, because a boy has punched me repeatedly, unprovoked.
“And we weren’t play fighting, there was no banter, it wasn’t a joke.”
She then begged to sleep in a separate bedroom to the others, claiming she didn’t feel safe.
Meanwhile, Ofcom received over 11,000 complaints, with many viewers calling for the 35-year-old actress to be removed from the house, and accusing her of making a mockery of abuse victims.
In Friday night’s episode, Ryan told Psychic Sally he “felt really low” about the accusation.
The father of one was adamant he’d never hurt anybody and he wanted to leave Celebrity Big Brother after hearing Roxanne’s complaint.
The morning after, Ryan told Sally: “It’s a lonely place here. These aren’t our family and friends you’ve grown up with. It’s a super lonely place. Big Brother can say one thing to you that’s minor…
“It happened to me. A tiny thing and it’s made me feel really low.”
Ryan added: “It’s all heightened in here. Everything is heightened in here. They’ve all got regulations and stuff in here and have to talk a certain way to you.
“When they spoke to me, they were telling me what they were talking about and it was so minute it makes me not want to be here.
“When they see me, they know I’m not a bad person. They know I’m not causing anyone any harm in here at all. So when they pick up on something that’s nothing, that’s then turned into something massive….
“I’m a soft guy. I don’t ever mean any harm to anyone, do you know what I mean?
“But I’m not a quitter. I’m definitely not a quitter. That’s one thing I’m not.”
Elsewhere, Roxanne, 35, was seen breaking down in tears in the diary room as she claims Ryan “smirked” at her the morning after the incident.
She said: “I don’t feel very comfortable or happy today at the moment because I slept separately last night because I felt uncomfortable because Ryan assaulted me.
“And he’s still here and he just smirked at me as I walked past.”
