Ex-Love Island star Scott Thomas reveals that he has given up alcohol after it almost cost him his business.

Former Love Island star Scott Thomas has revealed that he has given up on alcohol after it almost cost him his business.

The 31-year-old appeared on the second series of the ITV2 show in 2016 and went on to build a successful Manchester-based PR firm called The Social PR.

In a new interview with The Sun, however, Thomas reveals that a reliance on alcohol threatened to derail his career before he realised that he needed to take control of the situation.

"Last year at Christmas, I had a blow out that nearly cost me a client, it nearly cost me my business, my relationships with my team, my business partner," he told the newspaper. "Basically these blow outs, my body was telling me 'this isn't for you anymore. You are capable of so much better and every time you want to go out and drink, I'm going to punish you'.

"There's no way I was losing the business that I worked so hard for and I wasn't letting this demon jeopardise that any more.

"So I booked a holiday on my own to Abu Dhabi, went on my own just to chill and basically reflect. I was in quite a bad place. No-one would know that from how it looked and that's what annoys me about Instagram because you don't get the full story."

Scott has also been appearing alongside his actor brothers Ryan Thomas and Adam Thomas in the ITV travelogue Absolutely India: Mancs in Mumbai, which has just been renewed for a second series.
