Rylan Clarke-Neal blames his own ‘mistakes’ for split from husband

Rylan Clark-Neal and Dan Neal

Rylan Clark-Neal confirmed he has split from husband Dan Neal, saying he has “made mistakes” which he “deeply regrets”.

Amid swirling rumours, the TV and radio presenter confirmed that he has separated from his husband after six years of marriage to the former Big Brother contestant.

In a statement to The Sun, he said: “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.”

Clark-Neal, who has spent seven weeks away from his job as a BBC Radio 2 presenter, said that he would be “seeking help” for personal problems, and that his break from presenting would continue.

He added: “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 Clark-Neal recently described social media as a ‘f**king sewer’

Rylan Clark-Neal, who pulled out of hosting the Eurovision Song Contest this year, said in March that he was taking a break from the “sewer” of social media.

Speaking on the Sorted with the Dyers podcast, he said: “I love social media, social media is not only lucrative when it comes down to money, it’s brilliant for communication, there are so many plus sides to it.

“But I found in the last three weeks, me looking at my phone, looking at my feed, looking at what is trending more so and I’m just getting to that point where I’m thinking this is a f**king sewer.”
