The actress asked Big Brother to remove the former Coronation Street actor after accusing him of “intentionally” hurting her in what has been called a play fight, resulting in him being given a formal warning.
However, Roxanne has come under fire from both members of the public and celebrity friends, who have labelled her “evil.”
And now her Emmerdale co-star Kelvin Fletcher – who played her on-screen husband for several years – has had his say.
Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “She. Is. Evil. #cbb.”
He then proceeded to respond to claims that she is not “mentally fit to be in the house.”
He wrote: ”She’s not ‘mentally ill’ or in need of ‘help’. That denounces that people with actual mental health issues are as vindictive and menacing as her. They are not. There is a big difference. That was calculated and manipulative beyond belief. Ryan [love heart]”
In a later, now deleted post, he added: “But regardless of what she has done, she is still a human being and we all make mistakes. We don’t need anymore Hate in the world. We all deserve opportunity for remorse and forgiveness”.
The controversial incident occurred on Thursday night’s episode, when Ryan appeared to shadow box Roxanne during a conversation about washing – and she accused the Coronation Street actor of punching her “like a boxer would punch a bag”.
As Roxanne demanded to sleep in a separate room from the actor, Ryan’s girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh furiously hit back on social media claiming Roxanne should be removed from the Channel 5 show.
The former The Only Way Is Essex star did not hold back as her other half was called to the diary room and told off for “punching” Roxanne, asking fans to rally around him for support, even launching a petition to get her removed from the house.
Since, many others have had their say about the incident, with Corrie actor Daniel Brocklebank posting on Twitter: “Finally the general public are privy to what those of us that were unfortunate enough to work with her in the past already knew.”
While Sam Attwater claimed that she had lied about him hitting her too.
“I can not wait for @bbuk tonight. Im so glad that Roxanne’s true personality is coming out,” he wrote.
“She did this to me on Rocky Horror tour. Except she hit me and ran off stage saying I’d hit her! She’s not well and shouldn’t be in there. Anyone who has worked with her knows.#dangerous.”
Meanwhile, Women’s Aid have defended her actions, saying: “Domestic abuse means you don’t feel safe in your home environment, and as a woman who has previously spoken about being in a violent and abusive relationship, Roxanne clearly did not feel comfortable going to sleep in the same room as someone who had physically hurt her, even if that was not his intention.”
