The Emmerdale actress has opted to live a reclusive existence following her ‘punch gate row’ with Ryan Thomas on last year’s Celebrity Big Brother
Roxanne Pallett cut a glum figure as she broke cover after five months in hiding and just days after her engagement was called off .
The newly single star, 36, who has been shut away since her Celebrity Big Brother ‘punch gate row’, looked downcast and tired as she emerged to run errands in Manchester.
It’s the first time Roxanne has been seen in public since her interview with Emma Willis back in September where she declared herself ‘the most hated girl in Britain.’
Roxanne looked casual dressed in head to toe sports gear as she strode down the pavement in her trainers keeping her mobile phone close.
The former Emmerdale actress wore fingerless gloves on her hands to hide her missing diamond ring.
Last week it was revealed the actress had been ‘dumped’ by fiancé of six months Lee Walton .
Rumours have been swirling it was the steel worker called off their whirlwind engagement and has moved on with another woman.
Lee was spotted with a mystery blonde woman as he attended a birthday dinner with his parents earlier this month.
An insider said the split had left Roxanne devastated.
The source told The Sun: “Roxanne’s whole life appears to have fallen apart in the past six months. Professionally no one wants to touch her and now her personal life is in tatters.
“She and Lee got very serious very quickly but it has ended completely. She is gutted.”
Lee, who popped the question just a week after meeting Roxanne, famously stood by her throughout the backlash surrounding her Big Brother appearance last year.
After calling herself ‘the most hated woman in Britain’ for accusing housemate Ryan Thomas of deliberately punching her, Roxanne vowed to take some time out of the media spotlight and fled back to Manchester with Lee.
The former Emmerdale star has since returned to the small screen, appearing in E4s Celebrity Coach Trip.
Though the episodes, in which Roxanne is paired up with Britain’s Got Talent winner George Sampson, were filmed before her controversial CBB appearance.
Her stint on the travel show has not been without its dramatic moments. In an episode last week viewers declared their annoyance with Roxanne as she screamed about losing her bikini bottoms on a swimming trip.
She then threatened to vomit on the bus as rapper Big Narstie farted next to her.
Roxanne also appeared on Celebrity Island but quit after just five days.
