Rylan and husband Dan Neal are to divorce, according to reports.

The TV presenter and the former Big Brother contestant married in 2015, but it emerged they had separated in June this year.

According to the Mail On Sunday, the pair recently reunited in a bid to save the relationship, but now look likely to call it quits for good.

“It’s very sad”

A source told the publication: “Things were looking so good, like they were back together. They hoped they could avoid divorce, but it’s now looking like the only way forward.”

They added: “Many around them were desperately hoping they can win the battle to save their relationship. It’s very sad.”

Whatever is going on behind closed doors, however, it seems Rylan’s famous sense of humour remains intact.

Poking fun at his difficult 2021, the star tweeted on Saturday: “I’ve been through enough this year, really don’t need this petrol drought to make a sly trip to the M&S garage at midnight in a dressing gown taken away from me tbh.”

Addressing the split in June, Rylan said in a statement: “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.”

Rylan, who is gay, shot to fame on The X Factor in 2011. he has since gone on the present The One Show, This Morning, and Supermarket Sweep.

Attitude has approached a rep for Rylan for comment.
