Former Celebrity Big Brotherstar Roxanne Pallett has gone official with her new boyfriend on Instagram.

The former Emmerdale star sparked a media frenzy last summer during her time in the CBB house – falsely accusing housemate Ryan Thomas of punching her "repeatedly, unprovoked", for which she later apologised.

It led to huge backlash against Roxanne, but now it looks like life has taken a positive turn for the actress.

Snapped at the iconic Philadelphia Museum of Art steps – made famous by Sylvester Stallone's boxing underdog Rocky Balboa – Roxanne posted a photo of her kissing new partner Jason Carrion.

The caption reads: "I'm with you..."

Fans of the US version of Married at First Sight may recognise New York firefighter Jason, who once appeared in the series.

Roxanne was previously engaged to Lee Walton, but the pair went their separate ways in the wake of 'punchgate'.

Earlier this year, Roxanne described the CBB scandal as "the biggest wake-up call" of her life.

She noted: "Sometimes it takes losing everything to see who stays around for you during your worst days and not just the best days. I'm grateful for those people but I did hit rock bottom.

"I don't expect anyone to feel sorry for me, because it's my fault... But like everyone who makes a mistake I just want to be allowed to learn from it and move forward. This has been the biggest wake-up call of my life."
