Corrie star Ryan Thomas tears up on Lorraine during 10 day marathon challenge

Ryan Thomas seemed to get emotional during his Lorraine interview this morning (19 May) – after speaking about his grueling 10 day marathon challenge.

The former Coronation Street star has been undergoing a brutal 10 marathons in 10 days to promote mental health – alongside mental health charity CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably).

Speaking to host Lorraine on her ITV morning show, Ryan told Lorraine that the experience has "been overwhelming".

Ryan said: "To think on the 10th May I was at Buckhingham Palace ten days ago and I've been on canals for nine days and I'm disorientated that I'm on these roads now.

"But to have the support along the way from people at such an important time, just promoting mental health and what people are going through every day has been an incredible feeling.

"And I'm so proud of myself and everyone that's come on the journey with me and it's been great to be part of the movement, it really has."

And the actor appeared to get teary-eyed whilst talking about his impressive journey around the UK.

When Ryan was shown cute clips of his family and friends offering their support, the star appeared to be overjoyed with the love they were showing him and seemed to wipe a tear from his eye.

In the family and friends montage, TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh – Ryan's partner – said she'll be "waiting at the finish line today for a big cuddle and kiss".

Lucy, holding her and Ryan's baby boy who was born in March last year, added that "we can't wait to see you".

No stranger to physical feats, the star also appeared on the 2017 series of Channel 4's Celebrity Island with Bear Grylls, where he met Lucy.

The pair started dating after meeting on the show, and they became engaged in June 2019.
