Meanwhile, Scott’s twin brother Adam is trailing behind with 782K followers.

Last week, Ryan had posted a photo of himself posing on a set of steps following his CBB win.

Scott, 30, jokingly commented on the post: “What a guy! The big money shot which is about to get u more followers than me! Congrats NO.1 Thomas again.”

An insider has since told The Sun that Scott and Ryan are hoping to beat each other in the playful challenge.

They source said: “Out of the three Adam is bothered the least and Scott the most.

“But Ryan is now in front and his profile is massive at the moment so he should easily hoover up the followers he needs to get to seven figures in the new few weeks.”

Ryan captured the hearts of the nation after his difficult time in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

He was accused by fellow housemate Roxanne Pallett of ‘punching’ her during what appeared to be a play fight in the house.

After quitting the show days later, former Emmerdale actress Roxanne apologised to Ryan publicly during an interview with Jeremy Vine, claiming she had mistaken a playful act as a malicious one, and overreacted.

Ryan responded to Roxanne’s apology during an interview with host Emma Willis saying he wanted to move on and not dwell on the negatives, but he would accept Roxanne’s apology if she needed that to make her feel better.

As Ryan was crowned winner of the series, proud brothers Adam and Scott expressed their delight on social media.
