Denise Welch slams ‘manipulative, vindictive’ Roxanne Pallett over her Celebrity Big Brother punch row apology to Ryan Thomas

DENISE Welch has slammed Roxanne Pallett’s apology towards Ryan Thomas.

Roxanne apologised earlier today after she claimed the former Coronation Street actor had punched her repeatedly in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Denise hit out at Roxanne’s behaviour in the house and her apology

Denise: “She’s apologised because she’s caught out, is what I feel. I feel very very strongly about this on so many levels.

“To be perfectly honest there is nothing she can say to convince me that it wasn’t the most horrific things I’ve seen on television.”

She added: “The fact is the only place in Celebrity Big Brother is the toilet. But if for example if Ryan and Roxanne would have gone in there and accused him of hitting her there…

“Ryan’s career, but not only his career but his life would have been completely over.

The panel were balanced towards Roxanne

“Even those who wouldn’t have believed her would have had to be perceived to believe her because of the strength of the Me Too movement.

She knew it was play fighting.

“She basically set out to ruin Ryan,. she was manipulative, she was vindictive and I hope we don’t see the likes of her again because she has done a disservice to real victims of domestic violence.”

She added: “She knew exactly what she was doing.”

The ‘punch row’ so far

Denise added: “People always say there’s no smoke without fire, well this is proof there is smoke without fire.”

Defending Ryan, Denise added: “Ryan has just proved what a gentlemen he is, not knowing what’s going on, he’s shown no malice.”

When anchor Andrea McClean said the show had to be balanced towards Roxanne, Denise replied: “I understand your point, but I don’t care.”

She also alluded to run ins she herself had had with Roxanne saying: “It’s not her first BBQ, believe me it’s not.”
