How old is Thomas?

The BBC is known for it’s high editorial standards and the supreme quality of it’s reporting. This being the case, could someone please explain this article on Big Brother UK: “Third time unlucky for Caroline”.

  • Quote One:
     “The results of a poll conducted by phone, to be announced on Friday, will decide whether Caroline or 30-year-old computer consultant Thomas will be the third person to leave the Big Brother house.”
    Quote Two:
     “Anna, Caroline, Darren and Nichola voted to kick out 31-year-old computer consultant Thomas.”
    How old exactly is young Thomas?
