Ryan Thomas is said to be missing his new girlfriend, model Rio Fredrika, because she's constantly travelling abroad for work
'Coronation Street' actor Ryan Thomas is reportedly missing girlfriend Rio Fredrika.
The 30-year-old actor, who plays builder Jason Grimshaw in the ITV soap, is said to be "smitten" with the stunning model and is struggling with their long-distance relationship.
The couple - who got together last month following Ryan's split from Bollywood actress Amy Jackson - are reported to have only gone on a few dates since meeting because Rio is often on modelling jobs abroad.
A source revealed: "Ryan says her passport has more stamps than a pilot's. She's always in Dubai or New York and LA."
Ryan and Amy, 23, were first rumoured to have split in September but denied the claims with Ryan insisting they were "very happy together".
However, just a number of weeks later the pair decided to part ways because of their conflicting work schedules, with Amy filming in India and Ryan based in Manchester for Corrie.
A source said previously: "Sadly they have split up. They both tried to make it work but it just ended up proving too difficult due to their very busy work schedules, which meant they couldn't spend any real time together.
"Amy is often in India for long periods working on her films and that only added to the frustration. It's a real shame but they'll remain friends."
