The bizarre reason these CBB stars are embroiled in ‘secret 10-year feud’

It all started with a dress...

Celebrity Big Brother kicked off last week and there's already been a lot of controversy surrounding the show. Firstly, American adult entertainer Stormy Daniels dropped out just hours before the launch, and most recently the show has come under fire for welcoming Dan Osborne into the house despite his threatening comments to ex-girlfriend and mother of his son Teddy.

Now a new drama has been exposed, as housemates Ryan and Roxanne are reportedly embroiled in a secret feud. And it's all over a dress. Naturally.

Ryan Thomas

According to the Daily Star, the soap stars disagreement started when Ryan - who starred in Coronation Street - found out Emmerdale actor Roxanne was due to wear the same dress as one of his co-stars to the British Soap Awards. He allegedly phoned her to persuade her to changer her red carpet outfit.

"Ryan felt like he was doing the right thing by trying to look out for his friend," a source told the publication.


"But Roxanne was surprised by the way he dealt with it. She didn't like his tone and refused to do what he'd asked."

And we can't say we blame her.

It's also claimed the feud intensified when Roxanne began dating Ryan's friend and co-star Richard Fleeshman, with Ryan allegedly warning Roxanne was 'up to no good.'

"Roxanne was furious she'd been painted out to be something she wasn't," the source added.

Now, check out the celebs in the CBB house:
