Ryan Thomas Strictly not voting
'Coronation Street' actor Ryan Thomas admits he won't be picking up the phone to vote for ex-girlfriend Tina O'Brien when she appears on 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Ryan Thomas won't be voting for ex-girlfriend Tina O'Brien on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'Coronation Street' star - who plays Jason Grimshaw in the ITV1 soap - admitted while he will watch his former flame compete in the BBC One competition, he won't be picking up the phone to vote for her.
He told BANG Showbiz: "If I'm in and about I'll watching it. Will I be ringing in? No. I don't really tend to vote for things, but I'm looking forward to watching it."
The soap hunk - who called time on his relationship with Tina in November 2009 - explained while there is no romance on the cards for him at present, he thinks Cheryl Cole is "hot to trot".
He said: "I've been single for a long time. No one's been on the cards for a long time but if something came my way I'm not going to turn it down. Cheryl Cole is my ideal woman. That girl is hot to trot!"
However, one girl who won't be dating anytime soon is the former couple's 23-month-old daughter Scarlett, who Ryan says will be "a nun" when she grows up.
He explained: "Scarlett's the best thing I've ever had in my life. Now Tina's on 'Strictly' I get to see her even more, which is amazing. The first six months are tough and the sleepless nights aren't easy but she's a real daddy's girl.
"No boyfriends for her though. She's going to be a nun for the rest of her life!"
