Besides playing Jason Grimshaw in Coronation Street, Thomas has also taken part in many programmes related to the soap opera. In 2012, Thomas took part in a documentary called Corrie Goes to Kenya, alongside Brooke Vincent who plays Sophie Webster in the soap, Sue Cleaver, who plays his on-screen mother Eileen Grimshaw and Ben Price who plays Nick Tilsley.  He said that his time in Kenya changed him as a person and made him realise how much he has in life. In the documentary he had to take part in the killing of a goat, which is seen as an honour in that country. 
Thomas has two brothers who are twins. One of them is Adam Thomas who played Donte Charles in the BBC drama series, Waterloo Road, and now plays Adam Barton in the ITV soap opera, Emmerdale.

In October 2013, Thomas was declared bankrupt.
