Celebrity Big Brother Roxanne Pallett: Woman accuses actress of BULLYING her at school


A woman has accused Roxanne Pallett of bullying her at High School, saying the former Emmerdale actress made her life ‘miserable’. 

Roxanne, 35, quit Celebrity Big Brother on early Saturday morning – just a day after she broke down in tears, accusing Ryan Thomas, 34, of being physically abusive.

Her alleged former classmate, Sophie Banks, who called Roxanne’s backlash after the ‘punch’ row ‘karma’, took to Twitter to say she was pleased the nation could see her ‘school bully’s true colours’.

The physiotherapist wrote: ‘So 24 years ago I was bullied at school and left because it was so bad. Today the entire nation sees my school bully’s true colours. #cbb #Roxanne #karma’

She added: ‘I was in school with her in Carlisle until I left as she made my life miserable. I haven’t been watching it but it appears she hasn’t changed much.’

Wading into the debate, Sophie’s mum added: ‘I’m her mum and yes she did. It only took 1 term to turn a bright, bubbly 11-year-old into a nervous wreck not wanting to engage with school and friends. Luckily we spotted it quickly and as school wouldn’t do anything we had to. 1 term later bright, bubbly girl back.’

Roxanne representatives have declined to comment.  

Back in 2008, Sophie is said to have touched upon her experiences at school, claiming the actress made her life a living hell in an interview with the Sunday Mirror.

She told the publication: ‘She was calculating, evil and devious to me at school, people should know that she was the bully, not the other way round.”

‘I liked Roxanne to begin with and she’d come round to my house and I’d also visit hers for sleepovers but she established herself as Queen Bee very quickly and then she began to bully me.

‘At first it would take a subtle form such as embarrassing me in front of our friends, or asking me a question, then dismissing what I said and humiliating me. She’d say, “You have got no friends and everyone hates you”.’

The claims come after Roxanne found herself the subject of a media storm after accusing Ryan Thomas of punching her. 

The actress came under fire for her reaction to the incident and her social media accounts were all deleted by Friday morning after she was hounded online.

She was branded an ‘attention seeker’ and a ‘disgrace’ by furious Big Brother fans, while some viewers accused her of holding the wrong side of her body in apparent pain as she walked through the bedroom after the incident. 

Many fans claimed Thomas was ‘obviously play fighting’ and ‘hardly touched her’ during the incident.

An Ofcom spokesman told MailOnline it had received 11,215 complaints about the ‘punching’ episode. 

The soap star then departed the house on Saturday morning with an  official spokesperson for the Channel 5 series, stating: ‘Roxanne has decided to leave the BB House. The remaining housemates have been informed.’

Following her departure, fans of the show have now taken to social media to express their delight that she will be ‘facing the public’ and ‘apologising for what she has done.’
