He added: ‘I feel emotionally absolutely battered. It came from nowhere, absolutely nowhere.’

The star – who is dating Lucy Mecklenburgh – then vowed he will ‘try his best’ to patch things up with Roxanne despite their differing views on the incident.   

Earlier in the show, Ryan apologised to Roxanne over their explosive ‘punch’ row as he insisted he was ‘showing my affection’ after ‘playfully’ punching the actress. 

He said: ‘I honestly want you to know I was showing my affection. Maybe it came across the wrong way, I just want to apologise. I want to put it to bed. I don’t want it to affect other people in here.’

In agreement, Roxanne responded: ‘I don’t want this to be our ending.’
