Piers Morgan says Roxanne Pallett backlash is 'witch hunt'

Share article:

Piers Morgan has branded the "brutal" backlash Roxanne Pallett has experienced following her "Celebrity Big Brother" stint as "a witch hunt".

The former "Emmerdale" actress has been slated by the public and quit both her radio show and upcoming pantomime performance after she falsely accused Ryan Thomas of punching her in the house, before later admitting she "got it wrong".

But Piers feels "a bit sorry for" the ex-"Waterloo Road" star, and has given her some words of wisdom about what to do next.

Piers told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre TV column: "I think she made a big mistake, shouldn't have done what she did, and I told her, "Go away, clear your head and come back and start again".

"In the end it's a TV show. What she did was not smart and she knows it and I'm beginning to feel a bit sorry for her. I think it's now become a witch hunt. It's brutal."

The "Good Morning Britain" presenter did admit the star "got herself into this mess", but has called for people to "calm down".

He explained: "I know Roxanne a bit and I don't feel sorry for in the sense she got herself into this mess and I think she played it very badly.

"I think she knows how badly she played it and I think the scale of abuse she's now getting is beginning to get a bit much. People should calm down.

"She had to leave that show. She's lost her pantomime gig, she's lost her radio show. Everyone just wants to wipe down and extinguish and it's got a bit brutal."

Ryan won "CBB" last night (10.09.18) and admitted he felt like a "scared little boy" when Roxanne made the allegation against him, because he feared for his career and reputation.
