Rodrigo was not present at this year's "CBB" final, in which Ryan Thomas was crowned victor, and neither was controversial housemate Roxanne Pallett.
Although Ashley is hoping that Roxanne may come out on the other side, she was still angered by the situation, adding: "I couldn't believe I was watching it - I'm so pleased it was on camera".
However, Ryan's message to Roxanne was warm and merciful.
The former Coronation Street star's time in the CBB house had been marred by what has been dubbed "punch gate" after fellow housemate Roxanne Pallett accused him of punching her.
"And unexpected because there was nothing in it and as it unraveled, as it became bigger and bigger, the thing that scared me the most was when Ben said she couldn't stay in the room with me because she was scared". Hollywood actress Kirstie Alley was runner-up this series and, after hearing that Ryan had won, planted a great big kiss on him which was very well deserved IMO. The accusation left Thomas in tears in the Big Brother house.
Roxanne eventually apologised in two televised interviews, one on the Jeremy Vine Show and another on Celebrity Big Brother with Emma Willis. She's suffering enough. I don't want to be part of it'.
"I really don't wanna fuel something I feel Roxanne has gone through without me, you know coming out here, and I feel as if I don't know enough about the outside world to start commenting".
And despite branding herself 'the most hated girl in Britain,' former Emmerdale actress Pallett is far from done with reality television.
"You know, it's something now, looking forward, it's not something I want to dwell on".
"I was sensitive and emotional and mistook what was playful - I apologise for it, I shouldn't have questioned his motivation".
