Scott Thomas

Scott Thomas became famous when he joined the Love Island line in 2016. He recently returned to our TV screens, along with his soap star brother Adam and Ryan, as they attempt to find out more about their heritage on ITV show ‘Mancs in Mumbai’. But how much do we know about Scott Thomas? Here’s a quick look into his bio: 

Scott Thomas: Who Is This Love Island Reality Star? 

Who Is Scott Thomas, How Old Is He?

Scott Thomas is a 31-year-old ITV2 reality television personality from Manchester who finished in third place on the second series of Love Island. Before shooting to fame on Love Island in 2016, Scott was a club promoter for seven years.

He became a social media phenomenon with more than 320,000 Twitter followers.

He was involved with both Zara Holland and Kady McDermott while on Love Island. His relationship with Kady continued after the show ended, but they eventually split up. His twin brother is soap actor Adam Thomas. He also has an older brother named Ryan Thomas.

Away from television, he’s also worked as a director for the PR agency The Social. The star is now the owner of his own Public Relations Agency, The Social PR, which he launched four years ago just before appearing on Love Island. 

He has since seen his business go from strength to strength, with current clients including PrettyLittleThing, hotel group Edwardian Hotels as well as a string of restaurants and bars.

As well as this, it seems as though Scott has created his own rival dating show called Parties in Paradise. While not much is known about it, the new series is currently looking for applicants.

When was Scott Thomas on Love Island?

PC: Love Island 

Scott Thomas appeared in the second series of ITV2’s Love Island in 2016. 

The star Manchester lasted a whopping 45 days, getting all the way to the final and earning third place with his then-girlfriend Kady McDermott.

Cara De La Hoyde and Nathan Massey came in first place, while Alex Bowen and Olivia Buckland also made the finale.  

And though he didn’t win Love Island, Scott has gone on to have a very successful career in showbiz.

Who is Scott Thomas dating? 

Scott was in a romantic relationship with Kady McDermott during his appearance on Love Island. 

The pair became official during their time on the show, and continued to date on the outside world for just over a year. 

It’s believed the couple split back in August 2017 after Kady shared a cryptic message on Twitter and they unfollowed each other.

Alongside a book emoji, Kady tweeted: “New chapter.”

It came after Kady confessed there was a lot of pressure on her and Scott’s relationship, due to the fact they met on Love Island, as well as the fact their former co-stars Olivia Buckland and Alex Bowen were engaged.

Before dating Kady, Scott admitted he had dalliances with Hollyoaks cast mates, but wouldn’t name names.

Last year, Scott also sparked speculation he was dating Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison after they were spotted getting very cosy on Celebrity Coach Trip.

However, it turns out they are just good friends, with Vicky currently in a relationship with Ercan Ramadan.

And it looks like Scott is keen to get back in the dating game, after a source told the Mirror last year: “Scott is finally keen to date again. He hasn’t dated anyone since his split with Kady and is now keen to find love. “He’s wanting to take part in Celebs Go Dating and is very keen and serious about finding real love.”

Relationship with Alcohol: 

Love Island’s Scott Thomas has opened up about his battle with alcohol as he revealed he’s now in the best shape of his life.

Scott has been applauded for speaking out in a candid Instagram post as he celebrates six months sober:

The Manchester PR director, who appeared in the second series of Love Island in 2016, says that although he didn’t drink often, when he did he would ‘take it too far and become a different person.’ 

Scott, 31, the younger brother of former Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas and the twin brother of former Emmerdale favourite Adam Thomas, says he battled with this for years and saw a therapist.

At the end of last year Scott, the director of PR agency The Social PR, decided to go teetotal for 12 months after realising it had affected his work.

He booked a holiday to Abu Dhabi on his own and ‘had a serious word’ with himself:

Special moment for me today! Celebrating 6 months no alcohol and finally reaching my goal of the best shape of my life ❤️🙏🎉 – Before I go on I just want to say massive thank you to my PT @antonyteasdale4 for getting me to this point ❤️💪 -This may come as a surprise to a lot of you as it’s not something I’ve often talked about. For years I’ve always battled with my relationship to alcohol. I made a living out of being a party boy and although I didn’t drink often when I did I would always take it too far and become a different person. I’ve battled with this for years and although I’ve not had a bad life at all and always done “well” so to speak there was always an underlying feeling of not reaching my potential. I saw a therapist for years over this called Gareth at @menshouldtalk who was a massive help in giving me perspective and I still check in with him once a month even now. – – At the back end of last year I made a decision to go T total in 2020 for 12 months. A decision that had to be made because for the first time my behaviour had affected my business. To see something that I’ve worked hard for jeopardised because of my behaviour was a massive eye opener for me. This was a personal weakness I knew I had to get on top of to reach the level of success that I wanted so badly. I booked a holiday to Abu Dhabi on my own and had a serious word with myself over there. Picked up a pebble 😆 and stood in the sea and swore to myself I’d do 12 months. It was a scary thought but I was listening to Denzel Washington on repeat “to achieve something you’ve never had, you have to do something you’ve never done!” 💫 – 6 months down the line and I’m in a much better place. Everyday I wake up feeling unstoppable and I’m moving towards my goals. Making things happen in my personal life and business that I’ve always never found the time to do. Im not sitting here preaching to people about not drinking because I was different it was a weakness of mine. But what I am saying is if you do have a problem in your life that’s holding you back only YOU can get on top of it and yes it won’t be easy. But trust me when you do you will reap all the rewards 💪❤️
