London: Actress Roxanne Pallett battled with depression after falsely accusing actor Ryan Thomas of punching her on "Celebrity Big Brother".
In an interview to the sun.co.uk, Pallett spoke about the backlash she had faced following her false allegations against Thomas and how her health conditions started deteriorating after that.
She said: "I've been scared to leave the house, and strangers have shouted and spat at me in the street. I've changed my email address and phone number and I've recently moved house. I was getting messages from people saying they wished I was dead, or that I should kill myself.
"After I left 'Big Brother', I was advised to leave the country and get away for my own safety..."
"I was put on anti-depressants and anti-anxiety medicines. My mum noticed I was losing weight and saw I was losing my hair," The "Habit" actress added.
