In the space of less than 24 hours, 'Celebrity Big Brother' has begun to spin wildly out of control and now even the hosts are going rogue.
Shortly after the footage of Roxanne Pallett's exit from the house was shown, Rylan Clark-Neal - who hosts 'Bit On The Side' - took to Twitter and demanded that producers on 'Celebrity Big Brother' show the footage of what took place between Ryan Thomas and Roxanne Pallett, adding that he felt last night's episode was the most uncomfortable of the series so far.
I’m gonna get in trouble for this , I’m all for no interfering no outside contact etc .... BUT SHOW THE HOUSEMATES THE FOOTAGE. There I’ve said it. Praying they will.

If you're out of the loop, here's a quick summary - Roxanne Pallett accused Ryan Thomas of physically assaulting her in the Big Brother house, with footage showing Thomas mock-punching with Pallett. At the time, Thomas thought nothing of it however Pallett then told other housemates that Thomas had punched her repeatedly, giving the impression that he was in effect assaulting her.
Thomas was then formally warned by Big Brother for his actions. However, after Pallett heard chants at Ben Jardine's eviction, the 'Emmerdale' actor then told Big Brother that she was leaving the show and most likely forfeiting her appearance fee in the process. Thomas, meanwhile, is still in the house and appears to be unaware of the controversy outside surrounding Pallett.
As of now, there's still no word whether or not housemates will be shown the footage, but given how quickly all of this has spun out of control, it may seem like the only option.
'Celebrity Big Brother' continues tonight on Virgin Media Two at 9PM.
