Channel 5 have released a statement saying that Roxanne has decided to leave the Big Brother house:
Roxanne leaving comes a couple of days after viewers were shown accusing Ryan Thomas of intentionally punching her and hurting her. On Thursday night's show Ryan was seen running up to Roxanne and bouncing around her - and seemingly innocently to many - throwing mock boxing-jabs before she walked away joking and chuckling. Roxanne was then seen to be upset, went to the diary room and complained to producers about Ryan.
Roxanne has decided to leave the BB House. The remaining housemates have been informed.
Nothing further to add at this time.
Roxanne received many criticisms from viewers on social media who said Ryan was simply play-fighting and didn't in-fact hurt her
Big Brother decided to give Ryan a formal warning over the incident, and the Ofcom watchdog received over 11,000 complaints about how the incident was handled.
Prior to leaving the house, a representative for the Roxanne had said: ‘Roxanne has no contact with the outside world to make her own statement, however we do know that Roxanne has worked closely with various domestic violence charities due to being a victim of domestic violence herself.
‘She would be very upset to find out she may have caused offence to others who have been through the same. We can’t make any more comment at present until such time as Roxanne is out of the Big Brother house and is able to address this situation herself.’
