Ryan Thomas’ brothers have shown their support

Roxanne said she would leave the house on last night's live CBB show when she was told she must choose between nominated housemates Ben Jardine and Jermaine Pennant. "And we weren't play-fighting, there was no banter; it wasn't a joke".

The former Emmerdale actor's exit comes after media watchdog Ofcom received thousands of complaints.

"She has now been reunited with her fiance and family and thanks everyone for their support during her time in the show".

Looking emotional, the star said: "I'm just a little bit in shock".

He was reminded of the show's rules and given a formal warning.

He later spoke to Roxanne and the pair shook hands, apparently drawing a line under the controversy.

She claimed that the Coronation Star punched her several times, however Ryan said he meant no harm and apologised.

Getting the gist of the story, she said: 'All I'm saying is, I'm telling you now, if there had been violence in here then they would have come in and taken him out.

Jardine was then shown footage of the incident involving Thomas and Pallett and was asked to give his opinion.

Sally took the opportunity to be brutally honest with the actress, as she told her: 'I think people just think that you spent the night in [the separate room] because of what happened, and you still stayed. How am I going to get through the rest of this shit now?

Speaking about the incident, Roxanne's representative said: "Roxanne has no contact with the outside world to make her own statement, however we do know that Roxanne has worked closely with various domestic violence charities due to being a victim of domestic violence herself". She was a comfort blanket for me.

Pallett is the second star from this year's series to leave without being evicted, following the removal of Brazilian reality star Rodrigo Alves.

A few weeks later, she revealed she had become engaged to her partner Lee Walton after one week of dating.

Celebrity Big Brother continues at 9PM daily on Channel 5.
