Celebrity Big Brother winner Ryan Thomas fought back tears as he watched back his emotional breakdown on the show in the midst of 'Punchgate'.

While talking about the incident, he was grilled over whether he would meet up with Roxanne for 'a cup of tea' to hash out their issues, however he ruled out the meeting and admitted his focus was seeing his daughter Scarlett.

Last week, Roxanne caused ructions on the Channel 5 programme after she accused Ryan, of 'repeatedly and deliberately punching' her - however she later quit the house and admitted she was wrong after seeing Ryan's devastation.

She branded herself 'Britain's Most Hated Woman' last week when she sensationally quit the house after falsely accusing 'broken man' Ryan - in what came to be known as 'Punchgate'.

Making his appearance on the show on Wednesday, Ryan watched the footage live, after which he was left stunned and emotional as he watched himself weeping in the Diary Room and desperately pleading his innocence.

Speaking to Jeremy, he said: 'You don't have any idea what's going on just in general, the whole show... [Punchgate] is just a tiny bit of my journey. In that situation you want your friends and loved ones but the whole process... it's tedious...

'There's no element of time and the boredom... everything is heightened. Nominations become a horrible thing because you end up having to b***h and I know it has to happen and everyone knows what they're doing in there.'

When asked if he is prepared to forgive her, he said: 'I think Roxanne has been through a lot. CBB makes headlines and sometimes for the wrong reasons. It's time we look forward. She's suffering enough. I don't want to be part of it.'

On the subject of meeting up with Roxanne to hash out their issues, Ryan stated: 'It's something looking forward that I don't want to dwell on...

'I don't want to think of the experience in a negative way. Its not to say I don't want to see her but no offence to Roxanne but i have a daughter and I don't want to think about that now.'

Ryan confessed his chat with Jeremy Vine had put a stopper on seeing his nine-year-old daughter Scarlett, who he shares with his former Corrie co-star Tina O'Brien. 

The excited star delightedly said: 'I cant wait to get home, I'm picking her up from school you're keeping me from my daughter! That's the next leg of the journey. So looking forward to getting back to normality.'
