Rylan Clark had been speaking about feeling unwell in previous days but did not confirm what caused him to visit the hospital.

Fans immediately sent get-well-soon messages and told the Strictly: It Takes Two host to get some rest.

One wrote: “So glad to hear that you’re on the mend. Take your time to get better fully.”

“Aw im so sorry, sending you sooo much love,” another added, while one fan tweeted: “All love to you Rylan. Have a good rest, relax and whenever you come back to entertain us, you’ll bring happiness, kindness and fun, as always x.”

The beloved star, born Ross Clark, recently took time away from the spotlight to focus on his mental health after splitting from his husband, Dan Neal, after six years of marriage.

Speaking to The Guardian in January, he revealed he was admitted to hospital after becoming “quite ill” and fearing he wouldn’t be able to continue living following his marriage breakdown.

It prompted Rylan to take a four-month break from the spotlight to deal with the heartbreak as he explained that things had been ‘very bad’ during that time.
