A short while ago, Roxanne Pallett found herself at the centre of a massive scandal after claiming that Ryan Thomas punched her on Celebrity Big Brother.

Roxanne had demanded that contestant Ryan be removed from the show after claiming he "assaulted" her. Footage of the 'punch' showed Ryan jokily punching the air around Roxanne - and it was this that led to a public outcry, with many people taking Ryan's side in the row.

Now, reality star Gabby Allen, who shared a house with both Roxanne and Ryan on this year's CBB, has shared her thoughts on 'punchgate'.

Speaking to Daily Star, Gabby said: “I believe Roxanne actually believed what she was saying was true. I just think her perspective was blurred in a massive way. I don’t think she did it with any malice or anything.

“I do feel sorry for her as I don’t believe it was done in a nasty way. It has ruined her life. It is such a massive thing."

She added, “You have to grow the biggest balls ever to come back from that. I think I would just go to Madagascar if I was her.”

I spoke to his wife [Jacqueline Jossa] and everything. I said to her 'I just want to let you know, nothing happened'." Well that clears that one up...kinda?

Chloe Ayling and MARRIED Jermaine Pennant can’t stop kissing

CBB viewers were left shocked when model Chloe Ayling planted kisses all over married footballer Jermaine Pennant's face. It happened when Gaby Allen told Chloe to do an impression of a cat. She purred and pounced around before kissing Jermaine (who seemed very at ease with it, BTW). Jermaine later reciprocated it when psychic Sally Morgan dared him to kiss her.

Chloe Ayling apologises to 'disgusting' Jermaine Pennant's wife for kissing him

Chloe was the second evicted housemate and she got quite a shock in her exit interview. The 21-year-old model claimed she wasn't aware that Jermaine was married until she Emma Willis revealed it to her. Chloe called the 35-year-old footballer 'disgusting' and was left stunned when she saw footage of him telling other housemates that he's married. She also said: "I would apologise [to his wife Alice Goodwin], but obviously I could only judge things from what I was told in the house."

Since the event, Roxanne has hardly been spotted out in public and has gone off the radar on social media. Speaking about this, Gabby said: “Roxanne’s not been in contact with anyone - she hasn’t reached out.

“When she left she loved one of my sequinned jackets and I didn’t know what had happened so I put it in her suitcase, hopefully that is a little bit of a comfort as it is s***."

When in the CBB house, Gabby admitted that her and her fellow housemates were sheltered from news from the outside world. “In the house we were kind of protected as we didn’t know about the outside world.

“Being in there we had to just trust our instincts.

“We all knew that Ryan was a good guy but everything in there is so heightened, so even though what happened was so big, we thought we had to take everything with a pinch of salt."
