Rylan Clark-Neal has opened up about how much he struggled following the breakdown of his marriage, saying he became ‘ill’.
The presenter split from his husband of six years, Dan Neal, during the summer, and took four months away from the spotlight.
‘I got ill and I lost weight,’ he explained. ‘The honest truth is that it’s been s**t.’
Rylan added that his family was worried about him.
‘I don’t just disappear for four months — that doesn’t just happen,’ he told The Sun.
He vowed to get healthy again and said his mental health is much better after he focused on a new health and fitness regime, with the star describing exercise as a ‘therapy’.
The 33-year-old explained that he has gained some weight and is feeling much healthier for it.
Rylan and Dan, who starred on Big Brother in 2014, were engaged in September 2015, tying the knot the following year.
After they announced their separation, Rylan thanked fans for their support, writing in a message: ‘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 most.’
Following his break, he apologised for ‘scaring’ fans.
‘I’m obviously going through a mid-life, trying to dye my hair blonde, new teeth,’ he added to Lorraine Kelly, referencing his recent decision to remove his iconic veneers.
Of course, fans have been majorly supportive and are glad to see that Rylan is feeling better.
