Ahead of her exit, Kelvin, 34, took to Twitter to call Roxanne 'calculated' and 'manipulative' in the wake of the 'punch' row that took place on Thursday night's episode.

Tweeting to his 226K followers, he said: 'She. Is. Evil. #CBB.

'She’s not ‘mentally ill’ or in need of ‘help’. That denounces that people with actual mental health issues are as vindictive and menacing as her. They are not. There is a big difference. That was calculated and manipulative beyond belief. Ryan ❤️.

'Poor Ryan looks broken. What about HIS mental health? #CBB.'
