Celebrity Big Brother star Roxanne Pallet has broken her silence after leaving the BB house in a storm of controversy yesterday.

In a statement released today, spokesman for the star said: “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.”

Over 11,000 complaints were received by Ofcom after the 35-year-old actress accused Corrie star Ryan Thomas of punching her during a play fight.

However, viewers didn’t feel the allegations against Ryan were fair, and are now disappointed that Roxanne won’t have an exit interview with Emma Willis to explain where she was coming from.

After the “play fight”, fans accused Roxanne of holding the wrong side of her body when complaining to Big Brother about being in pain from the punches. Ryan apologised to Roxanne for the incident on Friday night, saying: “I honestly want you to know I was showing my affection. Maybe it came across the wrong way, I just want to apologise. I want to put it to bed.”
