Rylan gives health update as he returns to work after recent hospital stay with mystery illness


He was recently rushed to hospital for an ‘extended stay’ which forced him to miss his regular Saturday evening radio shows on BBC Radio 2 two weeks on the run.

And on Thursday, Rylan Clark, 33, gave an update on his health as he returned to work after his recent hospital stay with a mystery illness.

The presenter joined Alex Jones, 44, on The One Show, where he admitted that he’s had ‘a dodgy time’ but insisted that he’s ‘good now.’

Welsh star Alex asked her co-host Rylan: ‘How are you? People have been worried.’

He replied: ‘You know me, I just love a little drama. I’m good now, thank you, I had a little bit of a dodgy time but I’m good.’

Alex asserted: ‘You’re looking well and back on track,’ to which Rylan joked: ‘I am – It’s a lot of makeup!’

It comes after Rylan took social media last Friday morning where he revealed that he was rushed to hospital where he stayed for an ‘extended time’.

The former Big Brother star posted a photograph of himself with an IV in his arm, after being bedridden with the flu.

Rylan also shared that he was finally home, and would once again miss his BBC Radio 2 show the next day as he rested. 

Rylan wrote alongside the worrying snap: ‘Finally home after an extended trip to Costa del hospital. Slowly on the mend. Won’t be on the wireless tomorrow. Resting up. Be back soon.’  

The Supermarket Sweep host has not confirmed why he was in hospital. 

MailOnline contacted Rylan’s representatives for comment at the time.

A week prior, Rylan was forced to pull out of hosting his Radio 2 show after falling ill with the flu.

The presenter usually hosts Rylan On Saturday every week from 3 to 6pm, but was too poorly and replaced by Gary Davies.

The TV star took to Twitter the day before to make the announcement to his followers, writing: ‘Gone and got the flu (not surprised) been in bed for a couple of days. 

‘Have lat tested and not Covid thankfully but won’t be able to go on the wireless tomorrow. Be back soon x’

It comes after Rylan stepped down from his BBC Radio 2 show for four months last year after splitting from former policeman Dan Neal.

Sources close to the former Celebrity Big Brother star told The Mail on Sunday the couple tried to reconcile at their marital home after he spent much of the summer with his mother, Linda, who appears on his Saturday afternoon show.   

They said: ‘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.’ 

Friends insisted the couple spent weeks ‘trying to work through their problems’, but the marriage is now said to be unsalvageable.

Rylan’s absence from Radio 2, social media and hosting the Eurovision Song Contest in May led to speculation.   

In June, Rylan broke his silence to say: ‘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.’  

The couple married in 2015 at Braxted Park in Essex with guests including his This Morning co-stars Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes.

They met in 2013 and got engaged in Paris. In July 2016, they stepped in for Eamonn and Ruth, becoming the first gay couple to present the ITV programme.

Returning in September to Rylan On Saturday, he assured listeners: ‘I am feeling better.’

In January, Rylan told The Sun On Sunday how he became ‘dangerously thin’ and ‘mentally unwell’ after the breakdown of his marriage to Dan.

He said: ‘I got ill and I lost weight, I went down to under 10 stone – and I’m six feet four inches, so that’s not good. The honest truth is that it’s been s***.

‘I didn’t deal with what happened and now I am. I felt unwell and it was a very difficult time for me.

‘My mum was majorly worried about me, as were all my family. I don’t just disappear for four months – that doesn’t just happen.

‘Mum has been a lifesaver to me and one of my biggest regrets of this year was putting my mum through me not being well. I needed to get back to me.’
