Ryan Thomas wants to “look forward” and move past the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ scandal of Roxanne Pallett’s false accusations towards him.
The ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ winner admitted he was “really scared” when the former ‘Emmerdale’ actress claimed he had punched her and she was too scared to sleep in the same room as him, but after she apologised and admitted she had “got it wrong” and he finally got the chance to review the footage when the show ended yesterday (10.09.18), he wants to put it behind him.
Speaking to Rylan Clark-Neal on ‘Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side’, he said:
“We have to look forward and not dwell on that
“We can’t think about the bad times.
“It was the only time I was really scared and I think anyone in my position would have been the same.”
But the 34-year-old actor admitted he couldn’t have got through the difficult period in the house without the friends he’d made on the show.
“Everyone around me and the friends in there, they supported me, I couldn’t have done it without them guys.”
Earlier in the evening, Ryan won praise from viewers of the show when he told ‘CBB’ host Emma Willis he would “forgive” Roxanne for her false claims.
“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 the people around her.”
Meanwhile, the former ‘Coronation Street’ star – who was declared bankrupt five years ago – is reportedly set to make millions from his stint on the reality show.
In addition to the £500,000 prize for winning the contest, Ryan is said to have been inundated with offers of acting work.
A source told The Sun newspaper’s Bizarre TV column:
“It didn’t matter what happened in the final. Ryan was already the winner as TV bosses want him, there have been several offers.”
