Former Emmerdale star Roxanne Pallett hasn't exactly been the most popular housemate in this series of Celebrity Big Brother. Since entering the house two weeks ago, Roxanne has been plagued by claims from both viewers and her fellow housemates that she's "fake" and "plays up" for the cameras.

And in last night's episode (30th August), viewers were outraged by her behaviour after she accused former Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas of being a "woman-beater" following an argument they'd had where he'd playfully punched her.

Although he'd immediately apologised, Roxanne - who has an alleged history with Ryan - cried in the Diary Room that she wanted Ryan out of the show and that she couldn't bear to be in the same room as him, leading to Ryan being issued with an official warning by the CBB bosses.

As he was issued with the warning, Ryan was asked whether he understood why he was being given the warning, and he told Big Brother, "I think that we both know and Roxanne knows that there was no malice and hurt, or anger, in anything that I did during this time. But from your point of view, while doing this show, I am sorry and I understand."

Viewers were outraged by Roxanne's actions, and took to Twitter to air their frustrations - with many revealing they'd put in Ofcom complaints over her 'disgusting' actions.

But it wasn't just regular viewers who kicked off online - plenty of celebrities also took to Twitter, led by none other than Ryan's girlfriend, Lucy Mecklenburgh.
