Share article:

oxanne Pallett has felt "scared" to leave her house following her controversial appearance on "Celebrity Big Brother" in 2018.

The 36-year-old actress - who accused housemate Ryan Thomas of hitting her whilst on the reality TV show - spiralled into depression amid the backlash from her appearance on the programme, and has admitted to withdrawing herself from everyday life.

She shared: "I've been scared to leave the house, and strangers have shouted and spat at me in the street. I've been called evil and toxic from people who don't know me.

"I've changed my email address and phone number and I've recently moved house. I was getting messages from people saying they wished I was dead, or that I should kill myself. After a while you begin to believe the things you hear, I'd had enough."

Roxanne revealed that the backlash against her was so intense, she was advised to leave the UK.

She told The Sun Online: "After I left "Big Brother", I was advised to leave the country and get away for my own safety, because the hate was so much. I got threats and everyone I used to have around me had disappeared.

"I felt constantly sick. It's bad enough when one person berates you but I had thousands. I was put on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety meds immediately, which numbed me but I still felt trapped in confusion and fear.

"It was the worst and heaviest feeling of shame and regret and also remorse because I agree with how everyone felt; it was my fault. There's nothing anyone could say to me that I haven't said to myself."
