Lucy Mecklenburgh has called for Roxanne Pallett to be removed from the Celebrity Big Brother house, following Thursday night’s episode.
The former TOWIE star, who is dating CBB star Ryan Thomas, has branded Roxanne as ‘mentally unfit’ after she accused Ryan of being “violent” towards her.
In scenes aired on Thursday night’s episode, Roxanne broke down in tears and asked that Ryan be kicked out of the house after he ‘punched’ her in a play fight.
However, viewers were quick to question the actress’ dramatic reaction, including Ryan’s girlfriend Lucy.

After the scenes aired on Channel 5, Lucy tweeted, “Please RT or like if u want Roxanne removed. I don’t think she is mentally fit to be in the house. #cbb #getroxyout.”
The brunette beauty, who has been dating Ryan since they filmed Celebrity Island last year, also retweeted a number of tweets criticising Roxanne, and encouraged fans to make a complaint to Ofcom.
As well as that, Lucy posted a sweet Instagram photo of the couple kissing, alongside the caption: “The kindest person I know.”
Ryan’s younger brother Scott also took to Twitter to slam Roxy, writing: “I have now seen it all! Women like that are so dangerous! Trying to damage my brothers reputation over what was blatantly some harmless play fighting.”
“Be a drama queen all you want but don’t try and ruin someone in the process! Nasty that!”
“I actually don’t think it’s fair that she even stays in the house after this…i’m in complete and utter shock. She’s clearly unwell I’m sorry.”
After Roxy complained to Big Brother in last night’s episode, Ryan was given a formal warning regarding the incident.

However, hours later the former Emmerdale star claimed that she “couldn’t sleep” in the same room as Ryan, and asked Big Brother to remove him from the house.
In the Diary Room, she said, “I don’t feel comfortable sleeping in the same room about Ryan, I can’t sleep. I can’t sleep. I’m now suffering and I have to alter my experience because of someone else’s actions.”
“I can’t believe you’re letting him stay. It has to be, because it’s awful. I’m gonna get nominated in here now from being unsociable.”
Following her tearful display, Roxanne was granted permission to sleep in a spare room.
