ITV The Games star Ryan Thomas is left mortified by swimming trunks gaffe

By James Rodger & Sam Cook

Former Coronation Street actor Ryan Thomas left TV viewers shocked after he accidentally bared more skin than intended on ITV's new reality show The Games. The Celebrity Big Brother winner was red-faced after a wardrobe malfunction with his bathing trunks.

Ryan, 37, looked shocked following his dive as he chatted to presenter Alex Scott, saying "oh my god" and holding his hands over his face in embarrassment. Viewers of The Games took to Twitter in response to the x-rated incident. The show, itself, hasn't had the most succesful response from those tuning in. Read more about that here.

One of those viewers was Lucy Mecklenburgh, Ryan's pregnant partner, who shared the moment on Instagram Story after rewinding it and posting on social media. During the revealing moment, Ryan was mortified to watch as his yellow trunks fell down to his legs.

"There you go... the moon is shining," commentator Chris Kamara said during the hilarious scenes. Meanwhile, Alex Scott asked Ryan following the dive: "How hard was it keeping your trunks on? Under the water right there, we know you had a bit of a malfunction."

Ryan replied: "Really? Oh no. Did the sock fall out?" A shocked Holly Willoughby said: "I thought the point of budgie smugglers is that they don't fall off?"

On Twitter - fans have had their say. "Whoops," wrote one while a second said: "Ryan Thomas also has a nice bum #TheGames.."

The Games continues to air each and every weeknight at 9pm on ITV and also on the ITV Hub.
