Celebrity Big Brother 2018: There’s good news for Ryan Thomas after that Roxanne Pallett business
There’s a silver lining for Ryan Thomas after the whole Roxanne Pallett nastiness on Celebrity Big Brother.
For those unaware, over 11,000 Ofcom complaints were logged against the Channel 5 show when his apparent playfighting with Roxanne resulted in her claiming she had been badly hurt and left terrified by his “violence”.
This is a disgrace. Roxanne Pallett has put a formal complaint in to #CBB that she was assaulted by Ryan Thomas & wants him removed. She has even requested to sleep separately as she’s scared. Trying to ruin his career. Review the footage for yourself. Ruthless @scottyspecial pic.twitter.com/i49nqaUWCr

Fans have spoken out overwhelmingly against her, saying the video footage shows absolutely no malicious intent or aggression from Ryan; while a raft of her former co-stars and school peers have spoken of negative experiences with her; calling her a “compulsive liar”. Basically the whole thing has got very ugly, very quickly.
Roxanne has now somewhat wisely decided to leave the show – and Ryan has become the favourite to win.
In the wake of Roxanne’s exit, Coral have confirmed the former Corrie actor has overtaken Kirstie Alley in the betting.
His odds are now 8/15 to win, with Kirstie a close second on 2/1.
They’re the only two really in the race at all; with Dan Osbourne on 16/1, Nick Leeson on 20/1, Hardeep Singh Kohli on 20/1, Gabby Allen on 33/1, Sally Morgan on 33/1 and Jermaine Pennant on 150/1.
Ben Jardine last night became the third to be evicted, after he and Jermaine received the fewest votes of support from the public and housemates were forced to decide who to chuck.
Celebrity Big Brother continues nightly on Channel 5.
