Ryan Thomas 'absolutely gutted' after jungle's Adam Thomas came third

Soap star Ryan Thomas exclaimed he was “not having it” when his brother came third on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!

Emmerdale actor Adam Thomas lost out to Joel Dommett and victor Scarlett Moffatt on the jungle show.

And his brother Ryan, best known for playing Jason Grimshaw on Corrie, wrote in a jokey tweet that he was surprised.

During his time on the show, Adam earned the nickname “Mr Bushtucker Trial” after he was nominated for 11 challenges and won 49 stars.

“I just faced every fear possible,” he said.

After watching a montage of his jungle highlights, he added: “What an experience. I would not have changed any of that for the world.”
