When questioned about how the situation was handled Lucy argued that Big Brother fuelled the situation by giving Roxanne her own room and Ryan a forming warning.
She said that Ryan had argued there was no malice therefore the other contestants should have been shown the footage to support his defence.
Lucy added: ‘I think he was in too much distress for too long, I understand stories have to unravel natural but he broke down several times in three or four days think they’ve let him down, and maybe even Roxanne.’
