Jason will be left heartbroken later this week as his girlfriend Rosie Webster dumps him to take part in a reality TV show in London. The plot twist is Helen Flanagan's exit storyline as she recently decided to leave the soap.
Speaking to Lorraine about what could be next for Jason, Thomas explained: "I know the direction it's going. I'm not allowed to say too much about it, but I know that they're putting me with [different] people and I don't know what's going to happen there. But that should be exciting for him.
"I just want Jason to have a bit of fun. He's been tied to that relationship and he always seems to get into relationships too quickly."
Thomas also confirmed that he will miss Flanagan following her recent departure from the programme.
"In real life, she is the funniest person ever," he commented. "We will [miss her], yeah. Obviously a lot of people come and go over the years, but when you work so closely with someone… She's a massive character and she will be missed.
"They've kept the door wide open for Helen. People like to spread their wings, go out there and see what the real world is about, because we're a big bubble in that show. We wish Helen all the best."
Coronation Street airs Rosie's exit episodes on Friday at 7.30pm and 8.30pm on ITV1.
