Rylan Clark-Neal thanks fans for support after his split from husband Dan and says they are 'prioritising mental health'

RYLAN Clark-Neal thanked fans for their support after his split from husband Dan and says they are "prioritising our mental health".

The presenter, 32, revealed he split with his husband after six years of marriage last week.

Now Rylan has thanked fans for their support during this time and says he's "working towards getting back" to his jobs.

He wrote on Instagram: "I just wanted to write a message to thank you all for the love and kindness you have shown us.

"We are currently prioritising our mental health and looking after the ones around us we love the most.

"I am working towards getting back to the jobs I love in due course. Thank you for being patient with me X".

The Sun confirmed Rylan had split from his husband of six years last week.

A source told us: “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.


YOU’RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.

If you, or anyone you know, needs help dealing with mental health problems, the following organisations provide support:

  • CALM, www.thecalmzone.net, 0800 585 858
  • Heads Together, www.headstogether.org.uk
  • Mind, www.mind.org.uk, 0300 123 3393
  • Papyrus, www.papyrus-uk.org, 0800 068 41 41
  • Samaritans, www.samaritans.org, 116 123

“It’s one of those things. All those close to them wish them all the best.”

Rylan bravely spoke out about the breakdown of his relationship on Monday, admitting "a number of mistakes" he made "led to the breakdown of our marriage."

In a heartfelt statement, he told The Sun: “Following reports about Dan and I spending time apart, I feel I have to speak out – as the way it is being reported is unfair.

“I have made a number of mistakes which I deeply regret and have inevitably led to the breakdown of our marriage.”

Sadly, the star added that he has also decided to “seek help” after battling with personal issues – which will see him away from the airwaves for a while longer.

He said: “I have taken time away from work as I am not in a good place at the moment and am seeking help. 

“I am trying to take each day at a time and would like to thank you to everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time.”

Rylan first found fame as a contestant on The X Factor in 2012. He then became one of Britain’s most recognisable TV faces after winning Celebrity Big Brother in 2013.

The same year he met ex-Met Police detective Dan, who it is understood has moved out of their home to a rented flat in Essex.

Rylan interviewed him on Big Brother spin-off Big Brother’s Bit on the Side after contestant Dan was evicted.

Rylan has hosted on This Morning, Ready Steady Cook, Supermarket Sweep and Strictly spin-off It Takes Two — alongside a string of other screen appearances.
