Celebrity Big Brother's Roxanne Pallett to lose around £100k in acting deals and endorsements post Ryan Thomas scandal
Roxanne - who has been off TV for quite a while now - was hoping to increase her earnings by signing up for the reality show, for which she was expected to get paid about £75,000.
Celebrity Big Brother's Roxanne Pallett is at risk of losing up to £100k from acting roles and another whopping £75k from Instagram endorsements after her disastrous appearance on the show. And these aren't rumors as the former Emmerdale actress herself admitted the case on an interview with Emma Willis, where she said that she felt like "the most hated girl in Britain" and also that she was "scared for her future" after her shocking accusal of housemate Ryan Thomas punching her. It was soon proven that her accusations were false, which led to extreme public backlash towards her.
Roxanne - who has been off TV for quite a while now - was most likely hoping to increase her earnings by signing up for the reality show. She was rumored to have been paid about £750,000 to star in it. But in a strange turn of events, she chose to walk out of the show, before being officially evicted - for which she is expected to forfeit her earnings. Along with that, The Sun also reports that celebrity PR expert Mischa Joslin, who manages Eden Cancan, believes that the scandal could even lead to Roxanne missing out on endorsement and acting deals.
Mischa told The Sun "Before the show, I imagine she would have been charging around £750 for a branded post on Instagram. Had she succeeded on the show and boosted her followers and reputation she easily could have double that fee." He also estimates that one branded post a week could have earned Roxanne a yearly £78k a year from social media alone. But all of that could be at a risk now as she says things are already looking downhill for her.
On her list of acting deals, Roxanne was also supposed to star in a pantomime production of Cinderella at the Pomegranate Theatre in Chesterfield. But after the scandal broke out, a spokesperson from the council shared with The Mirror that they are now in talks, reconsidering whether she will be keeping her role after all that disgraceful public backlash or not. Their statement says: "We are aware of the public and media reaction to Roxanne Pallett’s recent appearance on Celebrity Big Brother. The council is currently in talks with Paul Holman Associates, the producer of Cinderella, this year’s pantomime at the Pomegranate Theatre."
While Roxanne did go on the interview with Willis to issue a public apology for her behavior, looks like nobody is entirely buying it. At all.

At the same time, any possibility of Roxanne returning to the show seems barely possible as about 21 of her former housemates on the show have called her out for being a 'compulsive liar', and most of them have taken Ryan's side in the huge scandal that has broken out. Complaining about her behavior, Danny Miller said: "Roxanne's a known compulsive liar. Ryan wouldn't hurt a fly. Horrible, attention-seeking liar."
Sam Attwater, who had worked with Roxanne on the Rocky Horror theatre tour, also shared she had accused him too of hurting her. "She did this to me," he said. "Except she hit me and ran off stage saying I'd hit her," he said.
Roxanne's former Emmerdale co-star Lucy Pargeter didn't hold back from shaming her either. In a series of tweets, Lucy wrote: "Just watched last nights #cbb .... it’s like watching a throwback to 12 years or so ago !!!!! She said she’s never had a soap award .... give the girl an Oscar !!!!! WTAF !!!!and the vote off ????? well done , she’s off the scale !!!! Thank god people are finally seeing ."
