Is­land star Ryan hits the jack­pot!

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

FORMER Corona­tion Street star Ryan Thomas said he agreed to take part in Bear Grylls’s lat­est sur­vival se­ries be­cause it is not a com­pe­ti­tion – but won Lucy Meck­len­burgh.

Ryan ( above), 33, is one of the re­cent crop of celebs be­ing tested in Celebrity Is­land With Bear Grylls.

The Chan­nel 4 show sees him and other stars – in­clud­ing Break­ing Bad ac­tor RJ Mitte, co­me­dian Mark Wat­son and singer Jor­dan Stephens – fend­ing for sur­vival on a for­eign is­land.

Ryan told ITV’s Lor­raine: “It was just the only one I wanted to do be­cause, with this one, there’s no win­ner, so you aren’t com­pet­ing against any­one else.”

Dur­ing his time on Celebrity Is­land he be­came ro­man­ti­cally in­volved with TOWIE star Lucy.

Ryan told Lor­raine Kelly it was “re­ally a plea­sure to have her (Lucy) there” after a preview clip of the show showed the pair kiss­ing pas­sion­ately. THE ‘Mile High Club’ is de­fined by the Ox­ford English Dic­tio­nary as ‘an imag­i­nary as­so­ci­a­tion of peo­ple’.
