Ryan Thomas lands ‘new job’ as a Pizza Hut delivery driver

Time to get those orders in?!

Ryan Thomas has got a new job as a Pizza Hut delivery driver. Yes, really!

The former Coronation Street actor turned delivery driver to surprise one unsuspecting Brit with one of the chain’s new limited-edition Beyond Meat pizzas.

Ryan seemed to embrace his new role, hopping onto an electric scooter to deliver the pizza to Pizza Hut’s most loyal customer in Islington, London.

What did Ryan Thomas say about his new job?

In a video that shows his day as a delivery driver, Ryan can be seen heading into a store to collect the cooked pizza.

Are you Ryan Thomas? Are you delivering pizzas now?

“I can’t not eat this,” he comments as he opens the box, decides it looks pretty delicious and bites into a slice.

“Ryan, that was supposed to be the customer’s pizza,” a voice off camera can be heard saying.

“I’m not even sorry,” the actor can be heard to quip, as he is shown speaking with his mouth full.

We’re not sure what his other half – fitness guru Lucy Mecklenburgh – will think of his fattening indulgence, though!

‘Are you delivering pizzas now?’

After collecting a second pizza, Ryan puts it on the back of his bike and heads to the customer’s home.

“Are you Ryan Thomas?” she asked as she opened the door. “Are you delivering pizzas now?”

“Just for today,” he smiled.

Ryan teamed up with Pizza Hut to celebrate its partnership with Beyond Meat.

From today (November 10), the chain is offering a new range of plant-based pizzas are available for a limited time only.

Designed to appeal to meat lovers and vegetarians alike, they’re available in selected locations in London, Liverpool and Luton.

Sadly, it doesn’t seem like Ryan Thomas will be delivering them all, though.
