CELEBRITY celebrity big brother

What is 'Celebrity Big Brother' without controversy. Just ask Roxanne Pallett, who has landed in hot water after some allegedly "manipulative" behaviour. So what went down? Pallett accused fellow contestant Ryan Thomas of punching her. The act seemed pretty playful, but Roxanne wanted Ryan off the show, even asking the show's bosses why he hadn't been kicked off.

It didn't stop there. Pallett also requested she sleep in a different room to Ryan, claiming that she didn't feel safe. Eventually, she left the show on her own accord, returning to her presenting job with Minster FM. 

Pallett even showed up to 'Jeremy Vine' to apologise to Ryan. "I got it wrong", she said.

She also excused her behaviour by saying that she had previously been in an abusive relationship, which caused her to react to the playful punch in such an extreme manner.

However, certain viewers don't think Pallett should get away with "punchgate". Many 'CBB' fans have hopped on Twitter, campaigning for Pallett to be dropped by the radio station. 

However, some came to her defence. 

Kelvin Fletcher, who played Pallett's on-screen husband Kelvin Fletcher, took to Twitter to call her "manipulative". 

Another co-star, Sammy Winward, also gave her two cents. 

What do you think? Was it all a big misunderstanding? Or does Pallett deserve to be fired?
