It’s hard to forget Married At First Sight UK’s Thomas Hartley, who stormed onto the show with drama swirling at every dinner party.

The 31-year-old recently teased he would be diving into another reality show involving “cooking, dating and Australia.”

However, it seems the reality star is now diversifying his act as he announced his new career venture – as Pam Sandwich.

Thomas, who was known to wear makeup and thigh high boots while on Married At First Sight, has announced he will be stepping into the spotlight and performing under the stage name Pam Sandwich as a drag queen.

Posting to his Instagram, Thomas shared a picture of himself in drag with the caption: “She’s official! From the house of @subway_ukireland. Get ya baps out for Pam Sandwich!”

He shared a video of Pam Sandwich’s debut performance, where the queen belts out Let It Be, on a secondary account dedicated to the Pammy persona.

Performances feature “live vocals, comedy, and hosting” from the Married At First Sight star, although chaos is also likely to follow given Thomas’ flair for the dramatics.

“So huns, I’ve decided to call my drag family – because no one wants to be a part of it and no one wants to adopt me – the Haus of Subway, because obviously I’m Pam Sandwich,” announced Thomas in a video.

The Liverpudlian told The Mirror he’d be excited to jump back into reality TV too, adding: “Have we seen a same-sex couple on MAFS Australia? With an icon like me? No, we haven’t.

“I would love to go over to Australia and marry an Australian man. I’m ready to get married again and again and again.”

He also teased that he would love to star on Big Brother, claiming he would “be the winner” if he appeared on the series.

Thomas was a stand-out on the last season of Married At First Sight UK, where he married Adrian Sanderson.

Never afraid of drama, Thomas was often at the centre of turbulent arguments with other couples and his own husband – who he no longer speaks to since their post-show split.

If the star wasn’t busy enough already, he’s also trained as a beautician and is now qualified to give beauty treatments, skin peels and B-Rox injections.

He said: “This is going to be a string to my bow that will give me such satisfaction! Having never really felt beautiful, I can’t wait to make everybody else feel just so!”

Perhaps fans will catch Pam Sandwich on future seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK – or maybe even the Australian version.
