CBB’s Roxanne Pallett has reacted to claims she over did her injury claims sustained from a car crash earlier on this year.
It’s the latest in a line of counterclaims to hit the ex-soap star in recent weeks. The trouble started after her claims that Ryan Thomas had hit her on Celebrity Big Brother and the trouble just seems to keep on coming.
Pallett had claimed that after in a car crash at a race day in July she ’feared that she would die’ as a result.
The organizer of the York race day event has hit out at her claims. Edd Pannett told The Sun: “I was first on the scene. I didn’t run over because I knew she hadn’t hurt herself.
“When I got there, she was saying, ‘I can’t feel my legs, I can’t feel my arms, my neck’s hurting, my back’s hurting, my head’s hurting’. She went through the whole lot. I feel we were used as a stepping stone for her to get to other things, and get publicity before going on Big Brother.”
The trained first-aider at the event Lynsey Pannett said: “After my initial assessment of her I knew there was nothing wrong.”
Pallett’s rep told Digital Spy:“Roxanne has never confirmed the speed she was travelling at when the crash occurred, it may have been reported but she never confirmed it.
“It would have been impossible for her to know her speed, as she was crashing. The only qualified and crucially impartial people present to assess Roxanne’s condition were the paramedics, who made the decision to airlift her to hospital.” Adding: “At the time of discussions and at the time of the race, Roxanne was not booked or in discussions for Celebrity Big Brother. There is evidence to support this which The Sun have been offered.”
After the accident, the former Emmerdale star said of her injuries: “I couldn’t feel anything in my hands and was convinced I’d lost my fingers. When I started losing the feeling in my legs, I became hysterical.”
