Rylan Clark-Neal addresses his break from ITV’s This Morning
Rylan Clark-Neal has explained the reasons behind his decision to take time off from presenting on This Morning.
The TV host announced he would be taking a break from the ITV daytime show last month, but with rumours spreading on Twitter that he had been given the chop, Rylan has now set the record straight.
Appearing on Lorraine this morning, Rylan explained: “If I’m being completely honest, I just need some time to myself.
“And I put a tweet out saying I’ve worked constantly for five years, and I got a lot of insults.
“And I get that, but what I’m saying is, I’ve not had time off. I’ve not had Christmas or summer off, and just for my head I just need mornings back for a while.”
He continued: “[The break is] just really, really nice. It’s nice to focus on me personally than Rylan at work. To sit there and say to any job, whether it’s This Morning or Big Brother or any other job that you need some time off, it’s tough.”
Rylan added that he will be returning to This Morning “at some point”.
“I will go back to This Morning at some point,” he said. “If I’m being completely honest, I just needed some time to myself!”
This Morning airs weekdays at 10.30am on ITV.
