Roxanne Pallett may have to get ‘normal job’ after CBB ‘punch gate’

Roxanne Pallett is considering getting a "normal job" to pay the bills as her TV work has reportedly dried up after the Celebrity Big Brother punch gate scandal.

The former Emmerdale star, 36, outraged viewers when she falsely accused fellow housemate Ryan Thomas of punching her back in August.

She subsequently issued a public apology and went into hiding.

OK! magazine now reports Roxanne won’t be making a comeback any time soon and is even considering getting a "normal" job to make ends meet.

A source told the publication: "Rox knows a TV comeback is not going to happen anytime soon, if ever.

“But eventually she’s going to need to work again and is now thinking about where that next cheque will come from.

"She would like to just get a normal job but she’s still too recognisable for that at the moment so she’s having to be a bit more careful with her spending.”

Roxanne’s last telly job was in Celebrity Coach Trip, which was filmed last year before the CBB incident with Ryan.

She shocked viewers of the Channel 5 reality show when she claimed the actor had "punched her like a boxer" and "intentionally" tried to hurt her during the August incident.

Labelling Ryan a "woman beater", she requested to sleep in a separate room from Ryan, claiming she didn’t feel "safe" and asked why Big Brother hadn’t removed the actor from the house.

After quitting the show, she publicly admitted her allegations were "massively wrong" and stepped out of the spotlight – even deleting her social media.

Ryan denied the allegations in the house and went on to be crowned Celebrity Big Brother champion.
