He may have only announced his big move to Australia a few weeks ago, but it looks like former Coronation Street star Ryan Thomas is already feeling homesick.

So instead, 33-year-old Ryan – who played Jason Grimshaw on Corrie – sent his daughter, Scarlett an adorable message on Instagram to wish her a happy birthday.
Next to a sweet picture of the pair, the actor admitted he was finding the separation ‘so hard’, writing: ‘Happy 9th birthday Scarlett, our first ever birthday apart makes this so much harder being the other side of the world. Love you my angel.’ N’aww.
And Ryan’s 412k followers were quick to send their well wishes, as one commented: ‘Bless you Ryan. I bet it is. happy Birthday to your beautiful girl’.
