Why Roxanne Pallett was not on Celebrity Coach Trip as show returns after six years

The return of Celebrity Coach Trip to E4, some six years after the all-star show was last on our screens and its return was due to bring back one of the most controversial TV personalities of recent times.

In the months since soap star Roxanne Pallett was embroiled in the ‘punchgate’ scandal with Ryan Thomas on Celebrity Big Brother , she has gone pretty quiet after admitting that her allegations were "massively wrong".

With E4 promising the ‘best ever line-up’ for the return of their coach trip, Roxanne’s inclusion had been met with a mixed response from viewers, after it was announced that she would be on show.
