At the age of 16, Ryan Thomas debuted on TV in the Manchester-based ITV soap opera Coronation Street (Corrie) as the cheeky mechanic Jason Grimshaw. The ‘Rear of the Year’ award winner (2008) quit the role in June 2016.
In 2012, along with Corrie co-stars Brooke Vincent, Sue Cleaver and Ben Price, Thomas appeared in a spin-off documentary titled Corrie Goes to Kenya, with the charity S.A.F.E.
Thomas started dating Corrie co-star Tina O’Brien in 2003. After a daughter, Scarlett, was born to them in 2008, Thomas ended the relationship, with both splitting in 2009. He is currently dating model and former TOWIE (The Only Way Is Essex) star Lucy Mecklenburgh since August 2017, when they met on the reality show Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls (August-September 2017).
In the wake of an unpaid tax bill amounting to £40,000, Thomas filed for bankruptcy, in 2013, despite an estimated salary of £90,000 per annum on the long-running Corrie. Following this, a report in The Sun claimed he was collecting appearance fees to the tune of £2,000 at nightclubs to pay off his bill. (Daily Mail & wikipedia)
In December 2014, Thomas bought a £70,000 Mercedes SL, even after filing for bankruptcy the previous year. (Daily Mail)
