Where is Rylan Clark-Neal?
RYLAN Clark-Neal has been missing from his shows for weeks now after separating from husband Dan, The Sun can reveal.
The 32-year-old has been off the airwaves since May 2021, after he suddenly pulled out of Eurovision in the wake of their decision to end their six-year marriage.
Is Rylan Clark-Neal unwell?
Fans of the telly and radio favourite were concerned about Rylan's health as he was thought to be taking a break due to illness.
The Sun has now revealed that Rylan decided to take some time off after separating from his husband Dan Neal.
The star's last appearance on his Saturday afternoon Radio 2 show was on May 8, but station bosses could not confirm when he'd be back.
In May, it was confirmed that the former X Factor star had been forced to pull out from Eurovision coverage having “been under the weather” in the days before.
A spokesperson told BBC: "Unfortunately Rylan is unwell so won’t be providing commentary for the upcoming Eurovision Semi-Finals on BBC Four.
“However Eurovision superfan Sara Cox will be joining Scott Mills and Chelcee Grimes live in London bringing viewers all the action from the Ahoy Arena in Rotterdam tonight & later this week."
After a three month absence from our screens, Rylan is due to make his return.
The former X-Factor contestant will once again take his place on Strictly It Takes Two, which begins in September.
His withdrawal from hosting duties came after he had revealed in March that he was “taking a break” off social media due to horrific trolling.
Speaking on the Sorted with the Dyers podcast, he said: "I love social media, social media is not only lucrative when it comes down to money, it's brilliant for communication, there are so many plus sides to it.
"But I found in the last three weeks, me looking at my phone, looking at my feed, looking at what is trending more so and I'm just getting to that point where I'm thinking this is a f***ing sewer."
Sources insist he will be back on air soon.
One said: “Rylan’s one of the most beloved people on TV so fans will be sad to hear what has happened.
“He often spoke of their relationship on air and they even co-hosted an episode of This Morning but unfortunately things haven’t worked out.
“They don’t want to discuss it in public and a bit of time off is probably for the best for now.
“It’s one of those things. All those close to them wish them all the best.”
Why did Rylan pull out of Gogglebox?
It was confirmed that Rylan would be missing from the 2021 series of Celebrity Gogglebox due to the health of his mother Linda.
The pair had appeared together on the Channel 4 show in 2020 and proved particularly popular with audience members.
Among their many plaudits, fans reportedly loved the banter between the mother and son duo.
However, his mum Linda, 68, has battled with Crohn's since her 30s – a condition that causes inflammation of the lining of the digestive system.
She also contracted sepsis in 2018, which almost killed her.
Speaking in 2020 about whether he would return to Gogglebox, Rylan told The Mirror: "It'll be a year away now, we were really lucky to be part of the first one and the second one.
"It'll all just depend on what we're doing and if my mum's well enough. We're never gonna say never we don't know what position we're going to be in eventually."
The show resumed on June 4, 2021, with a number of new celebrities including Lorraine Kelly, Geri Halliwell and Clare Balding.
