Meanwhile, Richards mum Sue also made her feelings known and sent her love to Team Ryan.

A rep for Roxanne said: Roxanne has no contact with the outside world to make her own statement, however we do know that Roxanne has worked closely with various domestic violence charities due to being a victim of domestic violence herself.

She would be very upset to find out she may have caused offence to others who have been through the same. We cant make any more comment at present until such time as Roxanne is out of the Big Brother house and is able to address this situation herself.

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
