Roxanne Pallet became public enemy number one after she accused Ryan Thomas of abusing her in the Celebrity Big Brother house earlier this year.

And the fall out doesnt seem to be abating any time soon, after former CBB housemate Luisa Zissman weighed in on the fracas.

Turned out, she isnt the biggest fan of the actress and she isnt afraid to make her thoughts known.

Roxanne Pallet is an idiot, the 2014 contestant said. I really dont like her, it wasnt cool what she did to Ryan.

She added to Daily Star: Shes weird… shes disappeared now hasnt she. Certain people like her just shouldnt be put on TV.

Roxanne faced the wrath of the nation after she accused Ryan of punching her like a boxer when in fact video footage had captured what appeared to be a friendly spar between the two.

At first other housemates were led to believe something sinister had gone down, after Roxanne was quite visibly affected by the incident and urged Big Brother to kick the actor out of the house.

However, after reviewing footage, producers didnt feel the father was a threat and chose to keep him in the house.

Once viewers and housemates discovered the truth behind the situation, they turned on Roxanne with swift and harsh backlash, which it seems is still raging for some months later.

Roxanne has since apologised for the claims, stating she was wrong and apparently sending a personal letter to Ryan.

The Corrie star, however, is done with the conversation and fed up talking about punchgate.

Speaking to MailOnline, the 34-year-old confessed: Ive been asked about it so many times and I just want to move on from it now.
