Fans of Celebrity Coach Trip are set for a huge surprise with the imminent arrival of Roxanne Pallett tonight (Wednesday, January 23rd).

Roxanne was caught in the middle of a huge media backlash after falsely accusing Ryan Thomas of intentionally hurting her with a punch while the pair were featuring on Celebrity Big Brother 2018.

Roxxy apologised immediately after leaving the house but many fans felt that her potentially career-ending outburst should have ended her own TV stardom. So what is she doing on Celebrity Coach Trip 2019?

Why Was Roxanne Allowed on the Show?

Filming for Celebrity Coach Trip 2019 happened some time ago.

In fact, it was rumoured to have been wrapped up by the end of summer 2018.

This was before Celebrity Big Brother 2018 had even launched, with Roxanne stepping into the house on August 16th, 2018.

She also appeared in Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls, which was also filmed prior to CBB. Since the incident with Ryan Thomas, Rox has not filmed for any new TV roles.

What Happened Between Roxanne and Ryan?

Midway through Celebrity Big Brother 2018, Roxanne accused Ryan of punching her with deliberate intention to harm her.

However, footage showed that Ryan did no more than playfully nudge Roxanne’s arm.

You can watch the incident below:

 

After her eviction, Roxanne branded herself as the ‘most-hated woman in Britain’. The general public was furious at her false accusation that Ryan had attempted to harm her.

In interviews with both Celebrity Big Brother presenter Emma Willis and Jeremy Vine, Roxanne stated that she overreacted and that she was sincerely sorry to Ryan, his family, his friends and fans.

Roxanne said:

At the time it hurt. But, when I look back at the footage – it was the first thing I saw when I got out – I got it wrong. I really got it wrong.
