I'm A Celebrity 2017: Ryan Thomas to follow brother Adam Thomas into the jungle?

Ryan Thomas - 1

Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas could end up on I'm A Celebrity 2017 this year.

The soap star may be about to follow in the footsteps of younger brother Adam Thomas who appeared on last year's show.

Adam, who also has a twin brother Scott Thomas that took part in ITV2 reality show Love Island, finished third on I'm A Celeb in December.

Now ITV are reportedly keen to get Ryan, who played Coronation Street’s Jason Grimshaw, on this year's line up.

A source 'close to the actor' told The Sun newspaper this evening: “There was speculation before Adam went into the jungle that maybe Ryan would do it – but circumstances went against that and Adam went in and did brilliantly.

“Ryan would be superb in the jungle and there has never been a family member following a family member into the outback ever in all the series."

The source added: "Fans would no doubt get behind him like they did Adam, and it’d be interesting to see if he reacts to the bushtucker trials in the same funny way.”

Ryan quit Coronation Street last year, saying at the time: "I feel like sometimes you go round in circles with storylines and being in a soap is like being in a bubble.

"It's time to pop it, test myself and take myself out of my comfort zone."

Well I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here would definitely do that.

But would he be able to better brother Adam's third place finish?
