Scott Thomas wowed fans by surprising beloved mum Gail Waring with a lavish Ibiza break, with the pair hitting up numerous hotspots during their trip.

The TV star and PR Director, 32, jetted out to the Balearic island on July 5 and has been sharing snaps of the getaway on social media, explaining he’d promised his mum an unforgettable trip.

Calling 68-year-old mum Gail a “character of a woman”, Scott shared a post last night of them enjoying a meal to celebrate their last night in the sun.

He told his 987k followers: “I was driving home from the gym a few weeks ago and I just had a moment where I thought to myself ‘I really should make more time for my mum.’

“That same day I surprised her with a trip away and what a trip it was.”

He continued: “We really won’t ever forget this trip and if you don’t see your family as much as you should do. Trust me, make time, it’s good for the soul.”

Scott has always been close to his mum, twin Adam, 32, and older brother Ryan, 37, and are frequently pictured together around their hometown Manchester, where they all have homes within 10 minutes of each other.

After heading out to Ibiza on July 5, Scott and Gail had a jam-packed week full of wine, great food and scuba diving.

The Love Island finalist wasn’t afraid to fork out for his main lady, setting them up at the swanky Aguas De Ibiza Grand Luxe Hotel, where rooms currently start from £550 a night.

With multiple fine-dining restaurants, gorgeous sea views, an infinity pool and even a revival spa by Clarins all within the hotel, they have access to everything they need for a relaxing break.


On their first day, the star cheersed his mum with a bottle of champagne, which Gail shared a snap of on her Instagram account.

“Nice little treat from the Hotel delivered to my room” the mum told her 54,000 followers, with the post attracting over 1.6k likes.

Daughter-in-law Lucy Mecklenburgh, 29, commented “Wat a dream”, and a follower added: “How lush, I think you deserve this & more. You created 3 legends after all”.


Gail even took the plunge and went scuba diving, with Scott filming his elderly mum’s hilarious reactions to the experience.

On his Instagram, he shared a number of pictures and videos, claiming Gail deserves her own TV show.

He captioned the post: “Scuba Steve and his mum! Had the funniest day with this absolute character of a woman. Someone needs to give @gail.rebecca her own TV show”.

The mother-son duo climbed up for a dinner on some oversized chairs and a gigantic table yesterday, with Gail calling the experience “a dinner to remember” despite her fear of heights.

“What a giggle @scott.thomas climbing up to our dining table! Especially when I’m not fond of heights!! A dinner to remember” she wrote.

Scott’s posts have attracted tens of thousands of likes, with comments all stating he will make an incredible partner for whoever his next lucky lady will be.

One doting fan wrote: “What ever lady that gets your heart will be very lucky.”, with another adding “Absolutely beautiful! your family values are impeccable x”

In an exclusive interview with OK! earlier this year, Scott revealed he is “very much still single” and is ready to “settle down” following a long stint as a singleton.

He previously dated Love Island co-star Kady McDermott from summer 2016 to late 2017, but hasn’t had a relationship in the public eye since.
