Celebrity Big Brother Summer 2018 – Ryan Thomas.

Meet Ryan Thomas and his siblings

Ryan Thomas was born on 10th June 1984, in Manchester, England.

The 35-year-old has two younger brothers – Adam and Scott, who are both twins!

They were both born on August 11th, 1988, making them 31 years old.

Ryan Thomas’ father and ethnicity

Ryan’s father is a well-known music promoter in Manchester and a former soul/jazz singer.

He was well known in the ’60s and ’70s as the lead singer of Dougie James and the Soul Train, who briefly toured with The Jackson Five.

Ryan gets his Indian heritage from his grandfather (from his father’s side) who was born in Mumbai, India. His granddad moved from Mumbai to Manchester back in 1947.

Therefore, Ryan and his siblings are a quarter Indian.
