Ryan Thomas has finally spoken out about his Celebrity Big Brother controversy with Roxanne Pallett after being crowned winner of the series last night.

The 34-year-old actor was falsely accused of assault by fellow soap star and housemate Roxanne Pallett during their time in the house, however he has said he is willing to forgive her if it means she can move on from the episode.

The former Coronation Street actor was stunned as Emma Willis finally showed him clips which saw Roxanne crying to Big Brother and accusing Ryan of “punching” her “deliberately”.

Upon leaving the house Roxanne was subject to intense backlash on account of her deliberate misrepresentation of events. Although the public still seem to be outraged at Roxanne for her actions, Ryan has forgiven her following the scandal.

He told CBB presenter Emma Willis:

If this person has an issue and a misunderstanding, who am I to sit there and judge?

Forgiveness is a big thing… so if she wants forgiveness and it makes her feel better then I would rather give her that, because I think she’s been punished enough by the public and people around her.
