  • Roxanne and Ben

In a statement, Channel 5 said: "Roxanne has made a decision to leave the BB House. And we weren't play-fighting, there was no banter; it wasn't a joke".

Pallett's exit came after media regulator Ofcom received 11,215 complaints from viewers over her reaction after accusing Thomas of punching her.

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

Looking emotional, the star said: "I'm just a little bit in shock". Thomas was given a formal warning.

Roxanne has chose to leave the BB House.

He later spoke to Roxanne and the pair shook hands, apparently drawing a line under the controversy. She claimed that he had punched her "like a boxer would punch a bag" during a play-fight.

In Friday night's live eviction show, Ben Jardine became the third star to be booted from the house.

She said: "If this is an act I don't want a BAFTA or a soap award".


He said: "It breaks my heart. I'm thinking, that's not right!" If I thought one of these fellas hit me I'd go and I'd find a lawyer.

During Thursday's show Thomas was seen approaching Pallett in the kitchen before appearing to use his fist to make contact with her body.

She continued: 'I don't disbelieve Roxy but I don't know, I don't think she's lying about it but I don't know if he's been like that. "I'm not that good", she laughed.

Upset by the situation, he responded: 'I don't want to win this game, it's just tough in here Sal, it's so tough.

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

She has had a whirlwind few weeks, surviving a crash in a stock auto race in July and getting engaged a week after meeting her boyfriend Lee Walton.

Celebrity Big Brother continues at 9PM daily on Channel 5.
