Ryan Thomas got emotional after viewing Celebrity Big Brother‘s ‘punchgate’ footage.
The actor won CBB on Monday night following the huge controversy that surrounded him and Roxanne Pallett while in the house.
The 34-year-old got choked up when he watched footage of himself upset in the diary room following the incident.
Ryan struggled to speak after he viewed the footage and said: “I’ve not seen any of that back, I’ve not seen anything back. It’s just strange because…”
The actor then trailed off as other panellists discussed the incident and he took a moment to gather himself.
“You don’t have any idea what’s going on just in general, the whole show… it’s just a tiny bit of my journey. In that situation you want your friends and loved ones but the whole process… it’s tedious, there’s no element of time,” he continued.
When he was asked if accepted Roxanne’s apology, the father-of-one said: “Listen, I think that Roxanne has been through a lot. Big Brother makes headlines and sometimes for the wrong reasons and I appreciate Roxanne’s apology.”
“I think it’s time that we move on and look forward and not dwell on the past and I think she is suffering enough. I don’t want to be a part of that,” he finished.
