Roxanne Pallett releases statement after quitting Celebrity Big Brother house
It was announced she left the house this morning.
Roxanne Pallett left the Celebrity Big Brother house after dealing with some "sensitive issues that she felt strongly about".
The news of her departure came after she accused housemate Ryan Thomas of punching her, which led to a huge amount of backlash outside of the house.
More than 11,000 fans complained to Ofcom after the incident, calling for her to be removed from the show. During Friday night's eviction, fans could be chanting for her to leave.
And now a representative for the former Emmerdale star has spoken about why she decided to leave the show.
The spokesperson told The Sun:
"Roxanne decided to leave the CBB house late last night after deliberating for two days with some sensitive issues she felt strongly about.
"She has now been reunited with her fiancé and family and thanks everyone for their support during her time in the show."
Scenes that aired earlier this week showed the former Coronation Street actor playfully pretended to fight with his housemate.
The ex-Emmerdale actress accused her housemate of punching her "like a boxer" after the pair had been playfully sparring in the kitchen.
Following the incident, she headed to the diary room, where she asked to speak to one of the producers about something "that's made me feel really uncomfortable."
