Kym Marsh jokes ex-Corrie co-star Ryan Thomas is “not a morning person”

She's promised Ryan won't be a boring CBB housemate!

Kym Marsh has joked her former Coronation Street co-star Ryan Thomas is NOT a morning person!

The soap star, who plays Michelle Connor, used her new OK! Magazine column to chat about Ryan’s current stint in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

The 42-year-old said she was backing Ryan to be a good housemate, but warned the other housemates to be wary of Ryan, 34, when he’s just woken up!

Kym wrote: “He’ll make an interesting, colourful character and that’s what people want to see. He won’t be boring and he’ll be outspoken but very kind and funny as well.

“Although I have to say, he’s not always a morning person. I remember that from when we’d have early scenes on the Corrie set. He’s happier once he’s woken up, like the majority of us.

“So it will be interesting to see how he is, especially when he’s sharing a bedroom with all of those other contestants!”

Meanwhile, Kym also spoke in her column about Ryan’s brothers Adam and Scott Thomas’ recent 30th birthday celebration, which was attended by a string of famous faces.

Kym attended with her new boyfriend, Scott Ratcliff, and admitted she didn’t actually get to spend much time with the birthday boys!

She wrote: “The party was in full swing by the time we got there and I actually only saw Adam briefly when I was leaving and I didn’t see Scott at all as it was so packed – they’re popular lads! !
