Former EastEnders actor claims Roxanne Pallett accused HIM of hitting her

Roxanne has been heavily criticised this week after accusing Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas of "punching her six times in the ribs" on Celebrity Big Brother.

Former EastEnders star Sam Attwater has claimed Roxanne Pallett once punched him on stage. before saying HE'D hit HER!

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.

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

A Celebrity Big Brother spokesman told the BBC: "Roxanne has chose to leave the Big Brother house".

The pair later spoke about the incident, and Thomas told her: "I want you to know from the bottom of my heart I was showing my affection".

In Thursday's episode, Pallett, 35, was in tears as she told Big Brother about the alleged altercation and asked to sleep in a separate bedroom. Maybe it came across wrong and I really do apologise if it came across that way.

"I'm not questioning your integrity", Pallett replied.

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

Ryan was keen to make amends with Roxanne however, and he tearfully apologised and said: "I am not the person you felt was treating you that way".

Speaking in the diary room that evening, Pallett said: "He actually punched me like a boxer would punch a bag".

She said: "Ouch that hurt, I was going to wash your clothes but I might shrink them now". "I'm thinking, that's not right!"

"If that's the one thing she's got on me, well done".

Since leaving the house Pallett has deleted her Twitter account. "I am sorry and I understand", Thomas said.

As well as her acting career, Pallett also co-hosts the Breakfast Show on York-based radio station Minster FM.

It was confirmed that the former Emmerdale actress had quit Celebrity Big Brother.
