Ryan Thomas' daughter Scarlett Thomas has showed her support with a sweet video, following Roxanne Pallett's 'punching' accusations on Celebrity Big Brother.
The dad-of-one was accused by the former Emmerdale actress of 'repeatedly punching her in the ribs' during a play fight, and Ryan was seen emotionally breaking down in the Diary Room after receiving a formal warning from Big Brother.
Ryan's celeb pals rallied round to support for the soap star via social media, and nine-year-old Scarlett has shared a heartwarming video for her dad on his brother's Instagram story.
"Hi daddy, I love you and I miss you," Scarlett said in the clip.
The youngster continued: "I think you're doing very well. I'm so proud of you and I think you should win."
Ryan shares Scarlett with ex-girlfriend and former Corrie co-star Tina O'Brien, although the pair went their separate ways in 2009, a year after welcoming their daughter.
Celebrity Big Brother bosses have confirmed that Ryan was offered professional support in wake of Roxanne's accusations.
In a statement, they said: "Housemates' well-being is closely monitored and of paramount importance. Big Brother puts into place appropriate support arrangements as required."
The Coronation Street actor struggled to cope with what Roxanne was telling their fellow housemates, admitting to the Diary Room cameras that he was worried he had 'let his loved ones down', although he didn't think he'd done anything wrong.
But when this year's CBB stars heard the crowds outside the house chanting 'Get Roxy out' during the live eviction which saw Ben Jardine head home, they began to doubt her claims Ryan had punched her 'deliberately'.
Roxanne has since said that she 'got it wrong' with her accusations against the soap star, apologising to him, his family, his friends and the public on Jeremy Vine on Monday morning.
She said: "I massively apologise to not only Ryan, but his friends, his family, his fans, every single person who watched that and who justifiably saw an overreaction to what wasn't a malicious act. Because I am sensitive, I mistook what was playful.
"There was no malicious intention behind that, and that is what I apologise for because I shouldn't have questioned his motivation. I got it wrong."
