Let’s hope there’s less controversy this time.
Controversial reality star Roxanne Pallett is rumoured to be heading back to our screens next year, this time for a stint on Celebrity Coach Trip.
According to OK! Online, the ex-Emmerdale performer filmed for the series earlier this summer – before she entered the Celebrity Big Brother house – and will feature on the show when it finally returns from a six year hiatus in 2019.
We reached out to Channel 4 for confirmation, while Roxanne’s representative has declined to comment.
The TV return will come after the former CBB housemate found herself in a media frenzy following her time on the series, during which she accused eventual winner Ryan Thomas of punching her “repeatedly, unprovoked”.
Roxanne has since admitted herself that she “got it wrong” in a series of public apologies to Ryan and his family, and Ryan himself said he forgave her during his exit interview last night (September 10) too.
Since leaving the series, Roxanne has stepped down from her role on York’s Minster FM radio station, and has also stood down from playing Cinderella in pantomime at Chesterfield’s Pomegranate Theatre this Christmas.
The actress has also recently denied rumours that she’s in talks to appear on I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! with a spokesperson for the actress telling us: “This is completely untrue.”
One TV show that Roxanne has appeared in recently is Bear Grylls’ Celebrity Island, which was also filmed before Celebrity Big Brother, but she decided to leave the show after just one episode.
In an interview with CBB host Emma Willis, Roxanne said she got the Ryan situation “massively wrong” while in the house, and has since watched the footage back.
“Watching it feels like a completely different scenario to how it felt at the time,” she shared. “How it felt when he did it, it hurt. I can’t prove a feeling – no one can. And the more I thought about it, it became heightened and I just convinced myself.
“And when I watched it back – the first thing I did when I got out was watch that, and immediately I realised.”
Celebrity Big Brother aired on Channel 5.
