OUTRAGE Roxanne and Ryan Thomas

They said: "Roxanne has chose to leave the Big Brother House".

It was announced on Saturday morning that Roxanne had chose to leave the Celebrity Big Brother house, and it looks like viewers will see the moment she comes to the decision tonight.

Roxanne's exit comes after she claimed former Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas, 34, punched her several times, but Ryan said he meant no harm and apologised to her.

Roxanne said she would leave the house on last night's live CBB show when she was told she must choose between nominated housemates Ben Jardine and Jermaine Pennant. "The remaining housemates have been informed", a Celebrity Big Brother spokesperson said, adding there would be no further comment.

Media watchdog OFCOM received more than 11-thousand complaints thought to be about Pallett's reaction, and is deciding whether to investigate.

The incident allegedly took place in the kitchen of the Big Brother house.

But Thomas said there was no "malice" in what happened, with some viewers arguing it was merely play-fighting.

He said: "I want you to know from the bottom of my heart I was showing my affection".

More than 100 pink models of the iconic USA automobile are expected to file in outside the church on the day of her funeral. In 2010, Rolling Stone magazine put her at the top of its list of the 100 greatest singers of all time, male or female.

During Thursday's show Thomas was seen approaching Pallett in the kitchen before appearing to use his fist to make contact with her body.

"Maybe it came across the wrong way". A boy has punched me repeatedly, unprovoked and deliberately punched me.

Roxanne - clearly taken aback at hearing the chant, said: "I loved my chant outside".

"I'm in shock, I went from upset to angry".

Pallett is the second star from this year's series to leave without being evicted, following the removal of Brazilian reality star Rodrigo Alves.

She said to Big Brother: "I'm going home, I need out". All I say, in my life, things have happened to my family, you've seen me, I like to have a little box.

It was confirmed that the former Emmerdale actress had quit Celebrity Big Brother.
