Corrie's Ryan Thomas arrested after row with ex

Monday December 14, 2009

Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas was released from a local police station at the weekend after spending eight hours in custody.

The 25-year-old was arrested on Friday evening following a row with ex-girlfriend Tina O'Brien, but was later allowed to return home without any charges.

It is thought the disagreement between Ryan and 26-year-old Tina concerned the couple's one-year-old daughter Scarlett.

The argument reportedly ensued while the former Corrie actress was picking up the little girl from Ryan's home in Cheadle Heath.

In a statement issued on Sunday evening, Ryan, who stars as Jason Grimshaw in the show, said: "I would like to make it clear that I have not assaulted and would never assault Tina."

"The police are satisfied this was the case and I was released without any action being taken."

Ryan and Tina, who met playing on-screen lovers on the soap, had been together for six years before splitting last month.
