Roxanne Pallett is officially back on our television screens. And just a day into appearing on E4’s Celebrity Coach Trip, the former Emmerdale actress has already ruffled feathers with one of her co-stars.
The series, which was filmed before Pallett’s infamous Celebrity Big Brother ‘punchgate,’ sees celebrities paired into teams and competing against one another in various tasks as they travel across Spain by coach.
And in Wednesday night’s episode, she butted heads with Geordie Shore’s Charlotte Crosby. When Pallett and her travel partner Britain’s Got Talent’s George Sampson voted against Crosby and her boyfriend Josh Ritchie – the Geordie lass reacted furiously.
Crosby slammed the nominations as ‘personal’ and slammed Pallett as a ‘back stabber.’
“What I find with Roxy is, she plays it all sweet, innocent and she stabs you right in the back at the last minute,” Crosby told the cameras.
However, at Tuesday night’s Television Awards, Crosby and Richie told OK! Magazine that Pallett only filmed with them for three days, and they didn’t end up spending much time with her.
“We didn’t really speak to her,” confirmed Richie.
While Crosby continued that despite reports suggesting otherwise, she didn’t feel ‘guilty by association’ by appearing on the show with Pallett after the CBB debacle.
“No. We filmed in July, way before she even went in Big Brother. What happened in Big Brother happened, we can’t comment on the matter, we weren’t there.
“Obviously, we didn’t get to know her very well on the coach. We lived our lives, she lived hers,” she explained.
Pallett left the Celebrity Big Brother house on her own accord after she falsely accused former Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas of punching her – despite video evidence proving otherwise.
She went on to label herself the ‘most hated girl in Britain‘ and has withdrawn from public life ever since.
Rumours swirled last week that she was considering getting a ‘normal job’ after acting and reality work drying up following her CBB scandal. However, her representative denied the claims and dismissed them as ‘ridiculous.’
Celebrity Coach Trip continues nightly on E4.
