As the two soap stars in the Celebrity Big Brother house, you would think Roxanne Pallett and Ryan Thomas would have lots in common.
However, it’s been revealed the actors have been embroiled in a bitter feud for over 10 years.
The pair had a row hours before the British Soap Awards, when Roxanne was playing Jo Sugden in Emmerdale and Ryan was starring as Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street .
After finding out Roxanne was planning to wear the same dress as one of his Corrie co-stars, Ryan phoned her up in a bid to change her mind.
A TV insider told the Daily Star : "Ryan felt like he was doing the right thing by trying to look out for his friend. But Roxanne was surprised by the way he dealt with it. She didn’t like his tone and refused to do what he’d asked."
Roxanne and Ryan had another row a few months later over her relationship with then-boyfriend Richard Fleeshman.
Ryan co-starred with Richard in Corrie, who had an 18-month romance with Roxanne, before they split in October 2007.
They got together after appearing alongside each other on Soapstar Superstar, when Roxanne was 22 and Richard was 16.
Ryan spotted Roxanne talking to a male friend and accused her of flirting behind Richard’s back.
Our source said: "Ryan warned Richard that he thought Roxanne was up to no good, which wasn’t true. Roxanne was furious she’d been painted out to be something she wasn’t.
