Ryan Thomas has addressed claims he was considering pulling out of Celebrity Big Brother because he didn’t want to share a pad with Dan Osborne.
Former TOWIE star Dan previously dated Ryan’s current GF, Lucy Mecklenburgh, which will no doubt make for some awkward conversations.
"He was playing hardball and saying it was either Dan or him, but Celebrity Big Brother bosses stood firm and he eventually backed down. Now they’re both doing it," a source alleged to The Sun.
"Ryan hates the fact he’ll have to share such a small space with someone from Lucy’s past. It’s awkward and has been a rough start to his experience.
"At least Ryan’s getting a huge wedge of cash. He’s a big name, so Channel 5 have paid through the nose."
However, a rep for ex-Coronation Street star Ryan has blasted the claims, insisting there’s nothing to see here.
"It’s ludicrous. Ryan hasn’t even met Dan, and if they were to enter the house together Ryan would be fine with it," the spokesperson told OK! magazine.
Dan and Lucy briefly dated during his TOWIE stint in 2013, with Dan then going on to marry ex-EastEnders star Jacqueline Jossa.
Lucy and Ryan fell for each other last year while filming Bear Grylls’ Celebrity Island.
Meanwhile, to make matters more interesting, Love Island 2017 star Gabby Allen is also rumoured to have signed up for the Channel 5 show after being linked to Dan during a boot camp in May.
Her ex boyfriend Marcel Somerville accused her and Dan of hooking up during the sojourn – claims both vehemently denied.
