Roxanne Pallett releases statement following Celebrity Big Brother walk-out

Celebrity Big Brother Roxanne Pallett has threatened to leave the house amid the latest eviction

A former soap actress has left the U.K.'s "Celebrity Big Brother" house after tearfully claiming another housemate "punched" her "like a boxer would punch a bag".

In a trailer for the night's show, the 35-year-old Emmerdale star is seen breaking down in tears as she sobs in the Diary Room "I'm going home, I need out, I need to go".

Mr Thomas, who was issued with a formal warning for physical contact by Big Brother, said there was no "malice" in what happened and many viewers argued it was just play-fighting - with thousands complaining to media regulator Ofcom over her reaction to the "punch".

The trailer shows her housemates left deliberating on who to side with, as she claims that Ryan, 34, punched her repeatedly with the intention of causing harm, whilst he insists that it was just playful nudging. "I've never told anything but the truth".

"I would never, ever, ever do anything like that", he tells the group.

She said: "Ouch that hurt, I was going to wash your clothes but I might shrink them now".

Roxanne has since released a statement saying she is now with her fiance and her family.

Roxanne's former housemate Ben Jardine reacted in shock when he found out she had left the house during a press conference call this morning.

She said: "I can't choose". At the time I did. "I am sorry and I understand", Thomas said.

"I do feel like I got played a little bit and I still feel a little bit upset about that, but at the same time I'm glad I handled the situation the way I did".

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight on Channel 5 at 10pm. "The remaining housemates have been informed", a Celebrity Big Brother spokesperson said, adding there would be no further comment.

She then entered the house's diary room and demanded to speak to producers. She has now been reunited with her fiancé and family and thanks everyone for their support during her time in the show'. It is not clear if she will be forced to hand back her £75,000 fee after her dramatic exit.

Footage presented on OK! Big Brother gave the former Coronation Street star a warning over the incident.
