Ryan Thomas has been crowned the champion of Celebrity Big Brother 2018 and sat down with Emma Willis to discuss the Roxanne Pallet scandal, discussing forgiveness and acceptance.
In what turned out to be one of the most controversial series of Celebrity Big Brother to date, Ryan Thomas was crowned this year's winner and sat down with host Emma Willis to finally talk through the 'punch-gate' scandal which saw Roxanne Pallet accuse him of assaulting her, only for her to be found to be lying.
In his exit interview, Ryan addressed the whole ordeal and made it clear he isn't going to hold onto negative feelings as he feels Roxanne has been 'punished enough'.
He said: "Forgiveness is a big thing and this place is a horrible place if you get it wrong and I personally don't want to be a part of that".
"If she wants forgiveness and it makes her feel better, I would rather give her that because I think she's been punished enough by the public and people around her".
The fact that Ryan Thomas can still defend Roxanne pallet after all the allegations she made about him, say that she’s been punished enough and respects her privacy just shows how much of a pure person he is. We need more Ryan’s.— jasmin (@larasburgess) September 11, 2018

Emma told Ryan that: "Never, ever, ever, has someone deserved to win this show as much as you" and TBH we can't think of a happier ending to the drama filled show as this year's despite all the major dramz.
