Kirstie Alley has claimed Roxanne Pallett was in contact with her manager while inside the Celebrity Big Brother house.
Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on This Morning, the 67-year-old said she had no idea about ‘punch gate’ until 48-hours after. However, once she was informed she knew it was a ‘career breaker’.
Kirstie said: “When I found out what her actual accusation was I realised that was a career breaker. That was a career destroyer so it became serious business.”
For those that have been living under a rock, Roxanne accused former Corrie star Ryan Thomas of ‘punching’ her ‘repeatedly’ and called him a ‘woman beater’. But, after receiving a huge backlash from the public, she has since confessed she ‘got it completely wrong’ and apologised.
Kirstie added: “I felt like it was out of my realm to handle and my only advice to Ryan was to get to the producers too because at that time I’d learned that she’d gone to the producers and gone to her manager and taken it further.”
But isn’t the whole point of Big Brother is that the housemates have no contact with the outside world?!
