After the episode aired, Kelvin expressed his views about the incident with his 226,000 Twitter followers.

He wrote: ‘She’s [Roxanne] not “mentally ill” or in need of “help”. That denounces that people with actual mental health issues are as vindictive and menacing as her. They are not. There is a big difference.’

He added: ‘That was calculated and manipulative beyond belief.’

The 34-year-old followed this comment with ‘Ryan’ and a heart emoji before adding: ‘Poor Ryan looks broken. What about HIS mental health?

Roxanne’s accusations caused uproar among viewers, and has seen major backlash from Ryan’s team.

Taking to Twitter, Ryan’s girlfriend Lucy Mecklenburgh wrote: ‘Please RT or like if u want Roxanne removed. I don’t think she is mentally fit to be in the house. #cbb #getroxyout.’

A source close to Ryan revealed to Metro.co.uk: ‘Ryan’s team have been liaising closely with Channel 5 and say that Ryan is doing absolutely fine.’

Talking to his fellow contestants, Dan said: ‘She’s been caught out and she must know she is part of the reason that Ben’s gone.’

‘And also you can hear everyone shouting get Roxanne out – like come on.’
