Ryan Thomas has revealed he’s in trouble with his fiancée after he bought a house without her knowledge.
Last month, the actor splashed out on a new family home in Cheshire for Lucy Mecklenburgh and their son Roman without her ever viewing the property.
Speaking on Friday’s episode of Lorraine, the former Coronation Street star admitted he still has some making up to do.

He confessed: ‘I’m still in trouble today. We’re not even in the house yet, it’s a building site. I can’t see light at the end of the tunnel.
‘Eventually it’ll be ok, but right now, everyone knows moving house is hard work, I’ve taken on more than I can chew with the house, but eventually we’ll be happy.’
The couple are currently living in Lucy’s native Essex with their 13-month-old son while they work on doing up their new Cheshire pad.

Back in March, Lucy shocked her Instagram followers when she shared a snap of a set of keys, captioned: ‘New house, new project, new memories to be made.
‘@ryanthomas84 bought our new Manchester home without me viewing it he is a very brave man hahahah!!!’
Although she joked her fiance was a ‘brave man’, his risk appeared to pay off as she gushed: ‘It’s just perfect! Edwardian, tons of potential. I can’t wait to get started on the renovation!!’

Although Ryan now has two homes in the UK, he recently confessed that he would love to live abroad.
He explained that won’t be able to happen in the near-future, however, as he wouldn’t want to leave 11-year-old daughter Scarlett, who remains in Manchester with actress mother Tina O’Brien.
Talking to brothers Adam and Scott for his Mancs on the Mic podcast. he said: ‘What it comes down to is the weather. The weather changes everything, if it’s not nice weather you stay indoors.
‘In California the weather is good all year round so what do people do? They spend their time outside.Playing basketball, on the beach, going for runs. I feel like that is a happy life when you have the good weather. It keeps people motivated …
‘The only thing that stops that happening, is Scarlett. She lives in two homes. I would like her to have a base, where she can feel it is her “other home”.
‘Otherwise for six months of the year I could live abroad and work from home.’
The actor has previously worked in Australia after scoring a short-lived role in long-running soap Neighbours, starring as Rafael Humphreys for two months between February and April 2018.
