The former 'Emmerdale' star quit the Channel 5 reality show on Saturday (01.09.18) after she accused Ryan Thomas of repeatedly punching her in the ribs, and Roxanne is now set to discuss the controversial incident during interviews on 'The Jeremy Vine Show' and then again during a sit-down chat with 'Celebrity Big Brother' host Emma.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Roxanne, like all the other housemates, is contracted to appear on 'The Jeremy Vine Show'."

The interview will mark the first time the actress has spoken about the situation with Ryan since she quit the show.

Meanwhile, an insider previously claimed that Roxanne, 35, decided against involving the police following talks with the show's producers.

The source said: "Roxanne sat down with producers on Friday and they discussed all the possible courses of action she could take.

"She was still adamant Ryan had hit her and that it was a really serious incident, despite what everyone has seen on camera.

"'CBB' takes its duty if care to the celebs incredibly seriously and they wanted to give her all the options.

"They asked her if she wanted to report the incident to the police. She asked what would happen if she did and they said her and Ryan might have to leave the house and they might both forfeit their fees.

"To be fair to her, she said she didn't want to go down that route. Then she left."
