It comes after Celebrity Big Brother fans earlier today called for Roxanne to be dropped from her breakfast show on Minster FM.

Listeners vowed not to listen to the York-based radio station when the 35-year-old former Emmerdale star is on after she quit the Channel Five show having accused Ryan Thomas of “punching” her.

Roxanne usually presents a breakfast show from 6am every weekday morning with co-host Ben Fry, but now viewers demanded Minster FM take her off air.

In the early hours of Saturday morning, Channel Five announced that the actress had left the house after the Corrie star insisted he had simply been “play fighting”.

Earlier today Roxanne apologised on Jeremy Vine’s Channel Five show in her first big interview since quitting the show.

But many fans have taken the side of Ryan and blasted her when she denied being a “liar”.

Now Minster FM listeners are taking to Twitter to call for the radio station to drop the star.

One wrote: “Please can you do a public announcement & let your listeners know your intentions on the dismissal of Roxanne from @minsterfm. I used to listen to @BenandRoxyFM every morning but will NOT be listening if the vile Roxanne is back on the show. She’s a disgrace! @bbuk #Roxanne






Another commented: “You need to announce that Roxanne is no longer associated with your radio station @minsterfm @BenandRoxyFM If you have an ounce of dignity, decency & credibility she’s been dismissed already, right?”

A third shared: “Boycotting until she is sacked.”
