Pallett's exit came after media regulator Ofcom received 11,215 complaints from viewers over her reaction after accusing Thomas of punching her.

The pair became very flirty during their time in the Celebrity Big Brother house, with Ben eventually confessing that he loved the ex-Emmerdale star, who is engaged to Lee Walton.

Big Brother said in a tweet this morning: "Roxanne has made a decision to leave the Big Brother house. The remaining housemates have been informed", a spokesperson for Celebrity Big Brother said.

Since leaving the house Pallett has deleted her Twitter account.

She added: "And we weren't play fighting".

Another replied: 'Good but you should have removed her without her walking!'

The soap star was seeking solace from housemates in scenes shown on the live feed.

"I confronted the situation [with Ryan] head on, I seen in the man's eyes something wasn't right". You can clearly see he's broken.

In her own statement to The Sun, she said: "Roxanne chose to leave the CBB house late last night after deliberating for two days with some sensitive issues she felt strongly about".

"She has now been reunited with her fiance and family and thanks everyone for their support during her time in the show".

Roxanne and Ryan seemed to patch things up the day before she made a decision to leave.

After Ben Jardine - who took Pallett's side in the incident - was evicted from the house, he then admitted he felt duped by Pallett after seeing footage of the incident itself.

Looking emotional, the star said: "I'm just a little bit in shock".

"Ow!" she squeals. "Woman beater".

Ouch: Asked by Kirstie Alley whether she thinks that Ryan meant to hurt her, Roxanne claims: "It hurt".

Meanwhile, Ryan's girlfriend, former TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh called for Roxanne to be removed from the house and urged fans to complain to Ofcom about Roxanne's behaviour.

Speaking about the incident, Roxanne's representative 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".
