Rylan Clark admits truth about ‘illness’
At the time, Rylan appeared to claim he was at fault for the split.
And he took time out from his presenting duties, TV appearances and social media.
Returning to Celebrity Gogglebox for the new series tonight, Linda was asked about the last series by This Morning host Alison.
Opening the interview, she said: “It’s a pleasure seeing you. It’s lovely that you’re back because there was a little bit of a break where you wasn’t very well Linda, how are you now?”
“Well it wasn’t me that weren’t well,” she said.
At the time it was like: ‘Mummy’s not too well with her Crohn’s,’ but no, it was actually me that wasn’t too well last year.
“It wasn’t,” Rylan admitted.
“It was actually me last year, I wasn’t too well.
“At the time it was like: ‘Mummy’s not too well with her Crohn’s,’ but no, it was actually me that wasn’t too well last year.”
Alison responded to Rylan and said: “Oh is that what it was, what a lovely mum.”
“Yeah, she’s always taking the fall for her son,” he quipped.

Alison then asked: “How are you then Rylan?”
“I’m really good and it’s so nice to be back on Gogglebox,” he said.
“We were a bit gutted we couldn’t do last year, we were going to but obviously things changed.”
Talk then turned to Eurovision and Rylan’s involvement in the event.
“It was the ultimate reset. It was the week I needed after the year I had,” he said.

‘I am in a good place’
The X Factor star is currently writing his second book and again made reference to Dan while chatting about it.
“It’s about the lessons I’ve learnt and obviously with the year I had last year with my personal life, the book’s slightly changed,” he said.
“You look like you’re in such a good place.” Alison said.
“I am in a good place,” Rylan confirmed.
