Roxanne Pallett has proclaimed herself as “the most hated woman in Britain” after receiving a massive backlash in the past few days for Ryan Thomas “punch” fallout. The Celebrity Big Brother contestant walked out of the Big Brother house on Thursday (August 30) after her housemate, Ryan Thomas punched her.
Apology After Claims of Physical Misconduct
Roxanne claimed that Thomas punched her in the ribs “like a boxer would punch a bag” on the show’s August 30 night episode. After her complaint, Ryan was given a formal warning for the action but wasn’t removed from the house. However, she continued to claim that Ryan was lying and ended up leaving the house.
Broadcast regulator Ofcom received over 11 thousand complaints about her claim as footage appeared to conflict with her claims. The nationwide debate was sparked after 21 of Pallett’s ‘Emmerdale’ co-stars spoke out to defend Ryan and called Roxanne “a compulsive liar.” In an interview in the very first episode of The Jeremy Vine Show, on Monday, she gave a heartfelt apology to Ryan and admitted her wrongdoing.
As Jeremy appeared to be careful with his sensitive and emotional guest, viewers slammed him in a series of Twitter posts for being soft on the disgraced actress. However, Celebrity Big Brother host, Emma Willis, has emerged as a champion after she slammed Roxanne for her action. She informed the actress of the potentially catastrophic events her claims could have had if there were no cameras.
After realizing that her “fake claims” could have ruined Ryan’s career, Roxanne apologized for her misconduct throughout the interview. She said,
I feel devastated. It cripples me with embarrassment and shame that I could’ve put someone in that position – seeing Ryan in the diary room distressed…
Accepting her behavior and repeatedly apologizing, she declared herself as “the most hated girl in Britain.” Enraged fans continue to slam her.
Quits Minster FM!
Less than a day after her interview with Willis, Roxanne has bid adieu to her job as a co-host on Minster FM. She realized her wrongdoing and repeatedly apologized to Ryan in two tearful interviews, which convinced some fans that she is truly sorry.
She had been hosting Breakfast with Ben & Roxy on Minster FM since February. The station issued a statement about her departure via a Twitter post. However, the show’s Twitter page was immediately deactivated after the announcement. Thought she said that she has stepped down from the radio to take some time out to reflect and address the issues, she doesn’t seem to stop.
Claims against Rhydian Roberts!
Roxanne allegedly made an exaggerated claim that Rhydian Roberts, X-Factor star assaulted her during their Rocky Horror tour 5 years ago. Roxanne and Rhydian were set to star together in Chester’s Cinderella production, but she had to walk away after thousands of people asked her to be removed from the show.
Reportedly, Rhydian was fearing that what happened with Ryan on CBB could happen to him too as he had already been a victim of such “fake” accusations. Numerous reports have surfaced that Roxanne is leaving the showbiz industry after the infamous rant on Celebrity Big Brother.
