Roxanne Pallett feared she would be subject to an acid attack, after the CBB “punchgate” scandal hit headlines last year.

The former Emmerdale star caused controversy last year, when she falsely accused Ryan Thomas of attacking her inside the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The actress faced serious backlash, and Roxanne has since revealed that she’s been diagnosed with PTSD.

Speaking to Closer magazine: “It was an awful blur. All my insecurities were heightened. I had feelings of paranoia, and feared something bad would happen to me.”

“When the phone rang, I’d feel sick. If I passed someone on the street, I was convinced they meant me harm.

“I was told that people were saying they wanted to throw acid in my face and that I was more hated than a murderer,” she said.
