Fans were left stunned after it was announced that Roxanne Pallett had left the Celebrity Big Brother house.
The former Emmerdale actress, 35, quit the hit Channel 5 show after a drama filled week which saw her accuse fellow housemate, Ryan Thomas, of punching her.
A spokesperson for Celebrity Big Brother announced: “Roxanne has decided to leave the BB House. The remaining housemates have been informed.”
Her best friend in the house, Married At First Sight star Ben Jardine, has now broken his silence on her exit following his eviction on Friday night.
Ben has admitted that he’s unsure of whether or not he will meet up with Roxanne, who he confessed his love for, now they are both on the outside.
After Daily Star broke the news of Roxanne’s departure to the star, he told them: “What… she’s left? My head is spinning.”
When asked if he would meet up with her, he admitted: “I really don’t know right now.”
His uncertainly comes after he claims he was “mugged off” after Roxanne revealed to him that Ryan had punched her several times.
During his eviction interview, host Emma Willis showed Ben the clip of Roxanne being hit by Ryan.
“Breaks my heart,” he said. “At the end of the day I said ‘show me, do what he did on me’, and she’s kind of gone…and I went ‘that ain’t right’.
“Now I feel like I’ve been mugged right off again. I’m such a mug ain’t I? It does my head in. I always fall for it.”
He also admitted that he felt “upset and played” by Roxanne, but added: “She was a comfort blanket to me. I feel she was a lovely girl that’s all I can say. I’m not going to dig her out.”
