Rylan Clark has stated that his mother, Linda, was rushed to the hospital following an accident while on vacation.
Linda, who turned 70 this year, experienced a ‘bad fall’ and now requires surgery, preventing X Factor singer Rylan from returning to his BBC Radio programme as he cares for his mother.
He wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter: ‘So unfortunately I took my mum away on her first holiday in a good few years and sadly she’s had quite a bad fall, resulting in her having to have surgery out here.
‘She’s not in the best health with her other conditions and this has made it more complicated.’
Shouting out to Scott Mills for stepping in, Rylan went on: ‘Cheers Scott for covering me at Radio 2 and thanks to the people out here that have sent their well wishes.

‘Praying for a successful surgery and a quick recovery.
‘Will update you on mummy Linda as and when I can x.’
Rylan has previously said how close he is to his mother, with whom he frequently appears on the Gogglebox sofa.
He told us last year that his mother was his ultimate rock during his ‘toughest’ year, following his divorce from Dan Neal in June 2021 after six years of marriage.
He shared: ‘I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for my mum. I stayed with my mum for that whole time… it was almost like I regressed to being a child again.
‘I couldn’t have done it without her,’ the former It Takes Two host said.
