The Apprentice star Thomas Ski Goggles (On Sale Here)nner will be bringing the laughs to your boring commute as he lends his voice to the Elizabeth line.
The TV personality, 32, who his best known for sharing his unusual breakfast combos on Twitter, will have passengers familiar with his iconic catchphrase s to help mark the first services between Heathrow and Shenfield on the line’s east London and Essex branch.
It comes after passenger complaints in recent months of delays and overcrowding on the line, which initially opened a year ago.
Transport for London (TfL) blamed some of the problems on outdated signals and overhead power lines, as well as the trains’ doors.
The latest snaps tell us that Thomas is ready for action as he’s seen beaming while rocking an orange high-vis jacket.
The pillow salesman, who was the first to board the new line, said: ‘I absolutely love d joining the driver in the cab on the train to Heathrow – it’s fantastic news you can now get there directly, with no need to change trains.
‘I love going on holiday and now it’s easier and quicker to get down to Heathrow and start your trip off with a love ly drink in the airport bar. Bosh!’
Sophie Chapman, Surface Access Director at Heathrow, added: ‘Heathrow is the world’s gateway to the UK and we’re delighted our East London and Essex passengers can now travel quickly and easily direct to the airport.
‘The extension of the revolutionary Elizabeth line service will open up Heathrow’s extensive destination network to hundreds of thousands of people from the East.’
More than 150 million journeys have been made on London’s Elizabeth line since it opened and around 3.5 million journeys run each week.
It followed four years of set backs and delays and a total cost of £18.9 billion – £3 billion over budget.
Today’s timetable update will also see trains run every two-and-a-half minutes at peak times between Paddington and Whitechapel.
The Apprentice is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
