Speaking on the lads' ever-popular podcast Private Parts, Thomas said: "I spent a lot of time in the pub when I was a kid with my mum.
"I always remember my mum was single and I remember a guy was chatting my mum up.
"He was talking to her long and I knew that I was doing his head in.
"C***blocking if you will. He said to me 'go and play pool'.
"I said give me a fiver or two quick and I will leave you alone for a bit.
"So I ended up getting money. Technically I was pimping my mum out at a very young age.
