Things quickly escalated after that as she accused him of causing her harm. Moreover, Roxanne complained to the producers through the microphone quoting,
"I've just been beaten up by Corrie's Jason Grimshaw. Ouch. Big Brother, that hurt."
On top of that, she pleaded the producers to remove Ryan from the show even after he had apologized. She received several backlashes from fans and even the victims of domestic violence, claiming she had overreacted.
However, the actress did apologize and confessed in retrospect that she had overreacted during that moment on the show. But, she did deal with several internal challenges such as contemplation of suicide following criticism from the viewers while Ryan took home the winning prize.
