Rylan Clark-Neal is ‘gutted’ by Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes’ departure from This Morning and has shared the reason why he quit the ITV programme after two years.
The 32-year-old presenter last appeared on the show in August 2018, having been the main stand-in host while Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield were on holiday, and believes he exited at the right time.
‘I had a lovely time there and learnt a lot when it came down to working live and going on to host the show eventually,’ Rylan disclosed.
‘I took a step back and I think it was the right decision for me to get out of that bubble of not really pushing myself.
‘I loved This Morning, but now it’s nice to sit and watch it from home instead.’
Speaking of Ruth and Eamonn’s exit from This Morning after 14 years, Rylan added to The Sun: ‘Ruth and Eamonn are my telly mum and dad who have held my hands for the past ten years and I’ve held their hands back tightly.
‘I’m obviously gutted I won’t be seeing them every Friday.’
Although he’s saddened by the television husband and wife’s exit from the ITV daytime show, Rylan is excited that Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary have taken over their slot and will be tuning in to watch them.
Alison and Dermot made their official debut in the Friday slot last week.
During the show, Alison suffered an awkward blunder in an interview with Graham Norton when she accidentally asked him about his dead dog.
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV.
