Roxanne Pallett made Celebrity Big Brother 2018 on to remember.

The former Emmerdale actor caused uproar when she falsely accused Corrie star Ryan Thomas of intentionally punching her.

It was only that it happened in the Big Brother house and Ryan's actions were caught on camera that his career isn't over. 

The footage shows Ryan playfully punching Roxanne on the ribs, barely even touching her.

Now the 36-year-old, who has been a recluse for the last year, has come out and revealed that she has PTSD.

She told Closer magazine, ''I had feelings of paranoia and feared something bad would happen to me. When the phone rang, I’d feel sick.''

She continued, ''If I passed someone on the street, I was convinced they meant me harm. I was told that people were saying they wanted to throw acid in my face and that I was more hated than a murderer."

After she left the CBB house and faced the massive backlash, Roxanne deleted her social media – and her engagement to fiance Lee Walton came to an end.

However, she is now seeing a therapist regularly, taking anti-depressants that are helping her to deal with what happened in the house.

Roxanne stresses that she deeply regrets her actions.

She said, ''I absolutely regret what happened on the show, one hundred percent. I got it monumentally wrong, and I’m sorry to Ryan and his family, for the pain I inflicted on him and others who were watching.''

She continued, ''I think it’s important when you’ve done something wrong, that you immediately hold your hands up and make sure everyone knows you’re sorry."It will take a long time for her accusations to be forgotten but at least she is getting the help that she needs. 



Ryan Thomas has suffered through an emotional journey during his time on this season’s Celebrity Big Brother.

His alleged abuse of Roxanne Pallett was the talk of the reality show, but the public rallied behind him and voted him winner of this year’s series.

Even though the father was able to prove his innocence, he was worried about what the scandal would do to his reputation.

The Coronation Street star opened up about the show’s aftermath and its effect on his personal life on This Morning. Knowing that viewers were supporting him made all the difference.

“You’re not supposed to hear what happens on the outside but that sort of clarification for me was massive. You’ll see me crying again because it was a relief of the public giving me something I needed right then.”

And because of the massive media reaction, the dad even began to doubt the truth of his innocence.

“I questioned myself. I even questioned, ‘Did I hurt this woman?’ It was so nothing to me, and maybe I caught her with my ring or on her arm, I was even questioning what happened because everyone was making such a thing out of it.”

Being cut off from the outside world only added more undeserved uncertainty to his situation.

The Corrie star has been humble in his handling of the situation, and he commended Roxanne for her verbal apology.

However, Ryan mentioned that he still hasn’t received the personal apology letter that Roxanne had promised earlier.


Weekend with my girls.

Although it has appeared that the CBB star has taken the accusation in stride, it is now clear that Ryan has been battling with personal issues as a result.

He hopes that his daughter, nieces, and nephews will continue to see him in a positive light and that the scandal has not altered their admirable view of their role model.


Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother have officially been axed by Channel 5. 

The iconic reality TV shows changed the TV landscape when the first season aired in the year 2000 on Channel 4. 

Channel 5 picked up the show in 2011, where it has remained until the final season – they tweeted their 153,000 followers: 'It's time for this game to end. The final series of Big Brother starts tonight at 9pm.'

Rylan Clark Neal also shared with his 1.5million followers: 'After six years working on one of the most iconic shows on television I’m saddened to hear the news Big Brother isn’t returning.'

'It has been the biggest privilege being a housemate, a winner and a host on my favourite show on the television.'

'I hope one day Big Brother will return but my focus now, as with the rest of the team, is to make our last series the best yet.'

The show has faced major criticism in its 18-year run, but has always been popular among it's viewers.

However, with rival show's like Love Island to compete with, Big Brother has seen a steady decline in ratings over the past few years.

Last summer's launch drew an average of 2.2 million viewers – 200,000 less than the previous year.

Both the civilian and celebrity versions have had huge success, relaunching the careers of faded stars and catapulting nobodies into the limelight. 

 Any bets the series starting tonight will be as outrageous as ever. 



We were elated when the handsome and genuine 'good guy', Ryan Thomas, was crowned the winner of this year’s Celebrity Big Brother.

This season, as always, was packed with heightened drama, especially after the Roxanne Pallett scandal.

The only thing that got the Coronation Street star through the whole ordeal was the love and support of his family.

He was moved to tears when he received an encouraging letter from his brother Scott while he was in the Big Brother house saying, “You’ve shown the nation just how amazing you really are.”

So, when the CBB winner finally got to return home to see his family, he was overjoyed.

Ryan shared a heartwarming video of him picking up his daughter from school for the first time in weeks.

Little Scarlett is overwhelmed when she sees her father outside her school. She throws down her backpack and runs to him, shouting happily: “Daddy, daddy, daddy!”

Wiping away tears, Ryan embraces his nine-year-old in a bear hug and refuses to let go.

The two cling to each other with so much love, unable to stand how much they have missed their special father-daughter bond.

Commenting on the emotional reunion, Ryan writes “complete” with a heart beside it. During his time away, the dad has felt as if a part of him was missing.

The former Corrie actor also posted an adorable photo of his daughter smiling down at his baby niece, Elsie Rose.

He could not believe how much his little niece had grown in the time he had been gone.

We are so happy that Ryan is finally reunited with his family, and we can't even with how cute this doting dad is.


This season of Celebrity Big Brother has been marred by controversy – but despite the difficulties he faced in the house, last night Ryan Thomas walked away the winner. 

The former Coronation Street star emotionally took the crown, saying to Emma Willis:

'I have no words, no words whatsoever, I don't know what to say… all day I've been acting like I'm all cool, didn't think about winning,' he said.

CBB was criticised for its treatment of Ryan during the series, after he was accused of an act of violence by a fellow housemate. 

Former Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallett is arguably the most controversial housemate in recent Celebrity Big Brother history following her actions.

The actress accused Thomas of punching her, which turned out to be an untrue exaggeration.

She declared herself 'the most hated girl in Britain' in her exit interview with Emma Willis. 

Speaking about the incident, Thomas said: 'I felt I was going to be getting a call from the police for doing something untowards to a woman. And that's not me.'

'I was glad we had 24-hour surveillance on us, because the point was proven.'



Ryan Thomas has been on an emotional roller-coaster during his role on Celebrity Big Brother.

The Coronation Street star was recently accused of punching housemate Roxanne Pallett.

Even though the allegations were proved untrue, the father was worried about what the incident had done to his reputation.

But he was reassured with a heartfelt letter from his brother Scott saying: “You have shown the nation how amazing you are and carried yourself so well.

“You have absolutely nothing to worry about. Everyone has seen the real you.”

The English actor broke down in tears when he heard the comforting words.

He has had a tough time away from family in the closed-off house, especially missing his daughter Scarlett and nephew Teddy.

On the dad’s instagram, his close friend and social media manager shared an adorable photo of Ryan and his nephew.

The family man and four-year-old Teddy wear matching pink ties and are giving a each other a precious kiss.

The caption reads: “I know Ryan will be so sad he’s missing Teddy’s 4th bday! But not long now! Happy b-day super ted, love uncle ry ry”.

Ryan and his nephew have such a sweet bond, and there is no doubt that he is missing his little nephew during his time in the CBB house.

We are glad that the dad was able to hear how his family is doing from Scott’s letter and wish him the best of luck as he continues in the reality competition.


We seem to have something in our eye after Ryan Thomas' letter from home.

Celebrity Big Brother has made us weak as Ryan couldn't get past the first three sentences of the letter, before breaking down into tears.

Sally Morgan read out the tearjerker which was written by his brother, Scott.

His younger brother offered Ryan some reassurance over recent assault accusations by the former housemate, Roxanne.

"I know you’ve been out of your comfort zone, but trust me it’s been well worth it. You’ve shown the nation just how amazing you really are."

"You have absolutely nothing to worry about. Everyone has seen the real you," it added.

The letter also offered some cute relief for the actor, saying how much his daughter Scarlett had been missing him – cute! 

"Scarlett is missing her daddy so so much, and we have been showing her some clips from your challenges…She smiles from ear to ear seeing her daddy having so much fun," Sally read.

The letter also revealed that Ryan's girlfriend, former TOWIE star, Lucy Mecklenburgh was right behind him, supporting him every step of the way.

"Lucy is more than proud of you and she is so happy everyone gets to see the Ryan she knows and loves. Honestly bro, just keep being you and keep shining." 

It's fair to say poor Ryan was a right state after hearing all the kind words of encouragement.

But it seemed that the letter had us all in pieces, as people took to Twitter to shed a collective tear over the letter. 

Roxanne has publicly apologised to Ryan and his family for the claim she made.

The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate stated that she had "got it wrong."

After a tough time, here is hoping that things only get better for Ryan.


It looks like one of the UK's favourite reality TV shows could be coming to an end with reports suggesting that Big Brother, and it's celebrity spin-off, are set to be axed after 18 years on air.

According to The Daily Star, Channel 5 bosses are ready to say farewell to the show which first aired on Channel 4 back in 2000.

It seems that plummeting ratings are to blame, with viewers said to have lost interest in the format.

Speaking to the paper, a Big Brother insider said: “There have been conversations between the execs about not renewing the contract for both Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother. It would be the end of an era but they feel the time is right to end.”

However, they did note that noting is set in stone, and even suggested that the format may be picked up by another production company should Channel 5 decide to drop it altogether.

"There is still time for the bosses at Channel 5 to change their mind but it is not looking likely. Even if they drop it, another channel or a streaming service may decide to pick it up in the future." 

Producers are currently casting housemates for this summer's civilian edition, though these latest reports suggest that it could be the last ever series.

With rival show's like Love Island to compete with, Big Brother has seen a steady decline in ratings over the past few years.

Last summer's launch drew an average of 2.2 million viewers – 200,000 less than the previous year.

The news come as a disappointment to fans of the cult programme, though many agree that now is the right time to pull the plug.


Emotions ran high on Celebrity Big Brother last night as Shane Lynch spoke fondly of his former Boyzone bandmate, Stephen Gately.

In a conversation with his fellow CBB housemates, Shane admitted that the late star still has a huge influence on the band's music, saying how there will “always be five” members of the group.

Stephen died of natural causes while holidaying in Majorca in 2009. He was just 33-years-old.

He went on to describe himself as “the wingman, not the singman”, telling US singer Ginuwine how Stephen and Ronan usually took the leads.

“One of our bandmates, he died. It was '09 he died. And he was one of the leads too,” he explained.

“He was 33 when he died. When that happened, we were in the middle of making a new album. And at that point we were like, 'What do we do? Do we call it a day? Is there no more Boyzone? Is that it?'”

“But every time we got together as a group, the four of us came together, it was very apparent that he was alive, when we came together.”

“Because that was our bubble. He's so there. So we'll always be five, regardless of visually what you see. He will always be there.”

Shane's touching words struck a chord with viewers, many of whom took to Twitter to pay tribute to Stephen Gately eight years after this untimely death.


This year's series of Celebrity Big Brother kicked off on Channel 5 last night with an all female line-up.

The launch saw a number of well-known woman enter the house including Keeping up with the Kardashian's star Malika Haqq and Borris Johnson's sister Rachel.

However, a number of male contestants are set to enter the reality show throughout the series, with our very own Shane Lynch expected to compete for the top prize.

According to The Sun Online, the Boyzone star is just one of the men expected to join the female housemates.

It's not the first time a member of the Lynch family has entered the CBB house, with sister and former B*Witched singer Edele finishing in sixth place in 2014.

Shane, 41, is married to former backing singer Sheena White and the couple have two children together, daughters Billie Rae and Marley Mae.

He is the third male celebrity confirmed for this year's series with former Liverpool footballer John Barnes and Love Island’s Jonny Mitchell also expected to enter the house this Friday.

The original all-female line-up marks a century since women won the right to vote in the UK.

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.


Famous YouTuber Trisha Paytas left the Celebrity Big Brother house last night voluntarily in a surprise move. 

Hours later, the content creator was online, and upoloaded a video entitled Why I Regret Leaving Celebrity Big Brother. 

However soon after, Trisha uploaded another video in which her opinions had clearly changed. 

Trish was appalled by the 'fake ass people' in the house.

She alsoaccused fellow house mate Paul of body shaming. 

'Basically body-shaming me. Saying I walk and I have my ass hanging out and I walk around with my legs showing.'

'Meanwhile, Chad does it and every single girl does bikinis but because he looks at me and I have all this body hanging out he's like disgusted by it.'

She also took a swipe at ex Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding, and insinuated that she has 'inside information' on her.

She also accused Celebrity Big Brother of catering towards Sarah through 'shady' manoeuvres.

Trish also took to Twitter to threaten the show with further exposure. 

Trish claims to have a big secret about CBB that 'they won't keep silent.' 

She also made multiple digs at the level of fame, or lack thereof, that the current contestants have.

Trisha will appear on tonight's episode of CBB, so we have one more chance to watch one of the most explosive housemates in recent CBB history. 



Irish model turned influencer Rosanna Davison is rumoured to be entering the Celebrity Big Brother house.

According to an exclusive report from The Sun, the former Miss World will be joining the ranks of CBB.

The full list of  CBB contestants have been revealed by the tabloid, and also includes Made in Chelsea’s Sam Thompson and Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding.

US Youtuber Trisha Paytas and glamour model Jemma Lucy are also rumoured to be heading in. 

Rosanna has not made any indications on her social media regarding CBB, but the show is notoriously tight lipped about their contestants in the run up to the show. 

The gorgeous model will be joined by Paul Danan, Jordan Davies, Helen Lederer, Derek Acorah, Amelia Lily, Dawn Ward, Brandy Glanville, Shaun Williamson, Chad Johnson, Marissa Jade, and Gogglebox's Sandi Bogle. 

If the reports are true, we'll be rooting for Rosanna to win the prize!
