Celebrity Big Brother contestant Kirstie Allen has spoken out following her exit from the house about the 'punch-gate' drama that unfolded during the latest series. 

Roxanne claimed that winner Ryan Thomas punched her, when footage showed the pair play-fighting. 

Roxanne has since apologised and Ryan has accepted her apology. 

Speaking about the events in the house, runner-up Kirstie says that it really shook the house when it happened. 

"When I found out what her actual accusation was, I realised that that was a career-breaker, that was a career-destroyer. It became serious business, and I felt like it was out of my realm to handle." 

Kirstie added that she advised Ryan to get to the producers, before it spiralled out of control. 

"My only advice to Ryan was, 'Get to the producers,' because at that time I'd heard she'd gone to the producers and gone to her manager. I go, 'You run, run, you gotta go in there and handle this now.' And Nick [Leeson] was a big help to Ryan, I think he was really the person who said, 'This is far beyond the scope of just having a chat or something.'"
