She claimed to Big Brother that he had intentionally hit her, when camera footage showed that it was in fact a play fight.

Roxanne left the house soon after the backlash, and Ryan ended up winning the series.

Roxanne apologised twice on TV - on The Jeremy Vine Show and in an interview with Emma Willis - and she quit all her upcoming commitments, including her part of Cinderella in a pantomime.

Roxanne subsequently wrote Ryan an apology note for her actions, with a source telling The Sun: “Ryan has finally received his letter from Roxanne.

“It was very heartfelt and unreservedly apologetic. He wants to put it to bed now and move on.”

Ryan also revealed he was ready to forgive Roxanne for what she had done.

He said in an interview with OK! magazine: “No matter what went on in there, I have no regrets about doing the show. 

“It was scary to show people the real Ryan Thomas, but I’m grateful people liked what they saw.

“Every time I go out I get people stopping me to say hello and wanting to give me a hug."
