Roxanne Pallett may never be in another reality TV show again after threatening to quit one for the third time
Experts estimate that Roxanne Pallett could lose around £100k in acting deals and endorsements post the Ryan Thomas scandal after she left Celebrity Big Brother
When former Emmerdale actress Roxanne Pallett found herself in the middle of what seemed like one of the biggest TV show scandals this year, certain celebrity PRs estimated that she might lose massive amounts of money, acting deals and more. And now to make matters worse, it looks like she's not going to get invited into another reality show in the foreseeable future, with her latest threats of quitting one for the third time!
The show in question is 'Celebrity Ghost Hunt' and in an episode of the Channel 5 series, which was filmed right before she entered the 'Celebrity Big Brother' house, viewers were left stunned watching Pallett claim she has had enough of her stint. And this comes as an overreaction to viewers mostly because, not long ago, she very dramatically exited the Big Brother house, after falsely accusing fellow housemate Ryan Thomas of 'punching her' repeatedly.
The 35-year-old, who is now the self-proclaimed "most hated woman in Britain" after the Big Brother scandal broke out, recently took part in the popular series of ghost hunting with Love Island star Georgia Harrison and The Only Way Is Essex's Diags. In one episode, a group was being led through a supposedly haunted house and ghost experts held an equipment that would light up if there were any spirits around.
Pallett was with host Rylan Clarke when one of the devices went off and she couldn't deal with it. She screamed: "I can’t cope. I’ve had enough." She also added: "Guys I’ve really had enough. I’m not f**king about here. I’ve had enough. It’s back and I’m leaving, I need to go now," before saying: "I don’t like it. It’s making me feel really upset. I’ve just got this really bad energy." And then things got really worse when the group asked to explore the bathroom and Pallett jumped back, claiming she felt something touch her.
This comes right after her appearance on another show called 'Celebrity Island With Bear Grylls', which she left after just five days with her fellow contestants. Things went south when she woke up in the middle of the night just four days after filming began, and apparently smelt the smoke from the campfire which allegedly gave her a panic attack. She claimed the smoke brought back memories of a house on fire she had witnessed as a child. She said: "It feels like it’s happening again. I couldn’t bear the smoke. It just reminded me of gasping for air thinking I was going to die.”
But to the rest of the populace, these consecutive threats to leave her reality TV stints only bring back memories of her apologizing publicly for falsely accusing Thomas on Big Brother - the scandal which had caused celebrity PRs to estimate the loss she'll be suffering in terms of offers and deals.
The Sun had reported that celebrity PR expert Mischa Joslin, who manages Eden Cancan, told them: "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 doubled that fee." She also estimates that one branded post a week could have earned Roxanne £78k a year from social media alone. But all of that could be at a risk now as things are already going 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 the disgraceful public backlash. Their statement said: "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."
