Stunned Ben admits he’s been ‘mugged off’ after watching Ryan ‘punch’ Roxanne

Stunned Ben Jardine has confessed he has been "mugged off" after watching punchgate footage for the first time.

Just minutes after leaving the Celebrity Big Brother house he was confronted with the video clip of Ryan Thomas ‘punching’ Roxanne Pallett .

"Ahhhhh," said Ben as his jaw dropped to the floor.

Ben admitted that his heart had been broken after spending the last 48 hours comforting weeping Roxanne.

Presenter Emma Willis asked what was different between the reality and the version of events he had been told.

"Breaks my heart," he said. "At the end of the day I said ‘show me, do what he did on me’, and she’s kind of gone…and I went ‘that ain’t right’.

"Now I feel like I’ve been mugged right off again. I’m such a mug ain’t I. It does my head in. I always fall for it."

Ben struggled to get his words out as Emma continued to ask him about the controversial situation.

When asked if his impression of Roxanne had changed, he said: "She’s a lovely girl. She does what she does. I do feel a bit of a mug sat here right now.

"She was a comfort blanket to me. I feel she was a lovely girl that’s all I can say. I’m not going to dig her out.

"I do feel upset and played."

Ben revealed that the action shown to him by Roxanne when she showed how hard Ryan hit her was over exaggerated.

Later on Bit On The Side, he demonstrated on host Rylan Clark-Neal what Roxanne had shown him in secret in the toilet.

He said: "She even hurt me with her little hands. I bruised like a peach."
