CBB star Roxanne Pallett has apologised after “getting it wrong” following claims Ryan Thomas punched her in the Celebrity Big Brother house.
The actress previously alleged Thomas “punched me like a boxer would punch a bag” but has now said she could see his actions were not deliberate.
In her first interview after quitting the reality show on Saturday, she told Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine: “At the time it hurt. But when I looked back on that footage as soon as I left the house – the first thing I did was view that clip – and I got it wrong, I really got it wrong.
“After it happened I just felt like, I don’t know how to explain… my mind ran away with me.
“I’m a sensitive person, my friends and family can vow to that, everything in that house was so heightened, a look, a comment, an action.
“Your insecurities are heightened, your sensitivities, the only thing I can explain is it was, in the moment, it felt worse than it was.
“I can’t prove a feeling. I can’t show you a feeling. It was the word ‘deliberately’ that I regret.
“I massively apologise to not just Ryan but to his family, his friends, his fans, every single person that watched that…”
