After working on a pilot for an MTV show, she auditioned for a number of jobs as a TV presenter during the spring of 2006. She also took a shot at becoming a housemate on the UK version of Big Brother. Impressed with her audition, the producers selected her to participate on the seventh edition of the popular reality program, which premiered that May.
During her second and third weeks on the show, she was forbidden to nominate anyone for dismissal from the house as she had discussed nominations during that period. On Day 33, Thomas and four other housemates were obliged to choose another rule-breaker for eviction in front of the entire remaining housemates. She survived eviction nominations during the fifth week, as well as in weeks 8, 10 and 11.

Thomas joined fellow housemate Richard in the House Next Door on Day 84 of her stay. With 62% of the vote of the public, she was finally evicted two days later, on August 11th, finishing seventh overall. Since emerging from the Big Brother house, the aspiring model and television personality has made a number of appearances on Welsh TV, as well as in a number of international publications.
