Celebrity Big Brother 2018: Ben Jardine reacts to punching footage after eviction | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

Last night it all kicked off on Celebrity Big Brother when Roxanne alleged Ryan had punched her.

It all unfolded as Ryan was seen walking up to Roxanne, who was talking with psychic Sally Morgan.

Ryan began moving side to side, with his hands held in a boxing stance, and then presumably proceeded to punch the air near Roxanne for a few seconds and then headed into the kitchen.

But Roxanne said: “That b****y hurt” to which Ryan responded immediately: “Did it? I’m sorry”.

Ryan then moved towards Roxanne and tried to comfort her but she pulled away and left the kitchen.

Following Roxanne’s complaint in the Diary Room, Big Brother pulled Ryan in for a chat and outlined the severity of the situation and he was given a formal warning, after which he apologised for his actions.

However, fans of the show were left unhappy with the outcome of the incident and over 11,000 complaints were made to Ofcom.

In tonight’s episode prior to the eviction, Ben and Roxanne had a private chat in the bathroom out of the cameras’ view where she recounted her version of events and he could be heard voicing his disapproval.

But in the wake of the incident during Ben’s exit interview Emma told him they were showing him the footage in the sake of “fairness”.

Once he had seen the exchange, Ben remarked: “Breaks my heart, I’ll be honest at the end of the day.”

“She’s laughed it off [in the footage], I feel like I’ve been mugged right off again.

“I’m such a mug, I always fall for it.

“I just try to do the right thing by saying ‘right, it’s not right to do that’.”

It was evident Ben was not happy with what had happened as he told Emma how he had pulled Ryan away for a chat about the incident before he had seen what actually happened.

“I’ve said to him ‘it is what it is mate’, I just felt all day that I’d been played and that I’d been a mug,” he shared with Emma.

“I do try to do the right thing in life.”

Subsequently, Emma reassured Ben that it did come across like he was trying to do the right thing in the show.

It remains to be seen whether any of the Ofcom complaints will be upheld by the broadcasting watchdog.

A spokesperson for Ofcom said earlier today: “We are assessing these complaints against our broadcasting rules, before deciding whether or not to investigate.”

Celebrity Big Brother continues tomorrow at 10pm on Channel 5.
