In the last week, Roxanne Pallett became the most hated woman in Britain.
The former Emmerdale star walked away from the Celebrity Big Brother house, after accusing her fellow housemate of domestic violence.
During a seemingly innocuous scene on Thursday night’s episode, Neighbours star Ryan Thomas playfully pretended to spar with Pallett.
Video footage from the reality TV series shows Thomas walking up to Pallett, bouncing around her, and throwing mock boxing jabs in the air.

Pallett laughs along with his joke and then says, “Ouch, woman beater, that bloody hurt”.
“Did it? Sorry,” Thomas responds.
Pallett can then be seen walking into the bedroom and becoming visibly upset. She then walks into the diary room and demands to speak to a producer.
Pallett, 35, then accuses Thomas of being “physically abusive” towards her.
Later in the show, Thomas is called to the diary room and is issued a warning for his behaviour. He is visibly upset and shocked by the accusation.
The actress was roundly condemned for her actions when footage of the incident was aired in Britain. Many people, including her former Emmerdale co-stars, spoke out about Pallett and alleged she had a pattern of this kind of behaviour.
On Saturday morning, two days after the episode aired, Pallett quit the reality TV show and left the Celebrity Big Brother house.
On Monday night, Pallett returned to the show to complete an exit interview with host Emma Willis.
During the interview, Willis asked Pallett how she could “get something so wrong” and whether she had considered the implications this kind of accusation would have on Thomas.
