The former 'Emmerdale' actress has resigned from her role as breakfast show co-host on North Yorkshire's Minster FM, on which she worked alongside Ben Fry, to "take some time out" following her controversial 'Celebrity Big Brother' appearance.

Her time on 'CBB' ended in disaster after she branded Ryan Thomas a "woman beater" and accused him of punching her only to back-track on her comments after she left the house early, admitting she had made a "horrible mistake".

A Minster FM statement read: "As a result of discussions today with her representatives, Minster FM can confirm that Roxanne Pallett has stepped down from her position at the station with immediate effect to take some time out and reflect on recent events.

"Roxanne will not be returning to Minster FM."

The 35-year-old star has also quit upcoming panto 'Cinderella', in which she was due to play the lead role.

A tweet on the Chesterfield Theatres Twitter account read: "Statement from Paul Holman Associates: Roxanne Pallet has today decided to step down from her upcoming role as Cinderella in Chesterfield, in order to take some time out and reflect on recent events. We wish Roxanne the best and will be announcing her replacement in due course. (sic)"

Following her 'CBB' appearance, Roxanne has now deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts after a huge backlash from fans.

She appeared in an interview with show host Emma Willis on the Channel 5 reality TV show on Monday night (03.09.18), in which the former 'Waterloo Road' star claimed she was now the "most hated girl in Britain".

She said: "I'm the most hated girl in Britain right now, it's a lot to deal with ... that's the title I feel everyone has given me at the moment.

"All I can do is own it, accept it and apologise.

"I feel devastated. It cripples me with embarrassment and shame that I could have put somebody in that position. Seeing the footage of Ryan in the Diary Room, distressed ... I fully agree and understand with every single person's reaction and perceptions to that. If I'd have been at home watching that I would have been the same."

Following the chat, Ryan's brother Scott Thomas praised Emma for "not sugar coating" the interview, and his other brother Adam Thomas admitted all he could hear when Roxanne spoke was "white noise".

The former 'Emmerdale' star tweeted: "I just heard white noise coming from her all I needed was the look on @EmmaWillis face throughout said it all am done with all this now it's draining ... #voteryan2win #CBBUK (sic)"

What's more, Ryan's mum Sandra has admitted she will never be able to forgive Roxanne for what the 35-year-old actress has put her former 'Coronation Street' star son through.
