Rylan Clark-Neal rose to fame as a contestant on The X Factor in 2012.

Since then, the former Celebrity Big Brother Bit on the Side presenter has become one of our favourite TV personalities.

The 32 year old Essex lad that won over the nation married Dan Neal-Clark, who rose to fame on Big Brother back in 2013.

Recently, it was announced that the pair had sadly ended their marriage, though, with Rylan admitting he is in a "bad place" as a result.

Supermarket Sweep host Rylan admitted he made a "number of mistakes" which he "deeply regrets" as he opened up, after it was claimed the pair had parted ways.

From how they met to their wedding day, here's a look at their relationship timeline…

How did Rylan and Dan meet?

Dan and Rylan met through work when Rylan was hosting Big Brother's Bit on the Side.

In 2013, Dan took part in Channel 5's Big Brother. It was during his exit interview he first met Rylan, and clearly there was a spark between the two.

The former police officer and previous The X Factor hopeful began dating not long after.

The proposal

The duo got engaged in September 2014.

The TV presenter shared the happy news on Twitter at the time, writing alongside a cute couple snap: "Pleased to say we're engaged. Thank you for all your lovely messages. Myself and @DanNealOfficial are very happy xxx".

Dan popped the question during a romantic trip to Paris, and Rylan later revealed in his book The Life of Rylan how much the event took him by surprise.

Holly Willoughby's pal said of the "magical engagement night" that when Dan popped the question, his response was: "'F**K OFF, C**T, C**T, YOU'RE A C**T 'and then I hit him in the arm."

Rylan added: "Seriously this is exactly as it happened. He didn't know what to say and neither did I. I was just in so much shock… [He thought] Am I on Ant and Dec? Is this a wind-up?".

Rylan had previously spoken about how he sees Dan's teenage son Cameron as his own.

He told Star magazine: "I look at him [Cameron] like he’s my own. He can talk to me – I’m Dad, but he can talk to me about sex! I’ll say, 'As long as you’re being safe!'".

Rylan continued: "If that was Dan, he’d be like, 'Stop it, Dad!'."

The beloved star also said at the time that the married couple were keen to extend the family: "We definitely want kids of our own, but we haven’t gone that far into how we would do it."

Making TV history

In July 2017, the wedded duo made TV history when they became the first gay couple to present the ITV show.

And in fact their appearance went down so well with viewers, they've returned to fill in for Holly and Phillip Schofield several times since.


Rylan admitted he made a "number of mistakes" which he "deeply regrets" as he opened up, after it was claimed he had parted ways from his husband Dan.

Rylan said: "Following reports about Dan and I spending time apart, I feel 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."

Rylan added he is "seeking help" and explained his ongoing break from his Radio 2 show, which left fans concerned.

He added to The Sun: "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 say thank you to everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time."

Their split came after Rylan spoke to OK! last year, about how it was "strange" for him and Dan to have so much time together in lockdown.

The presenter admitted: "It has been strange because we're both used to working so much. We're not used to spending this much time at home and it's made me realise, as much as I love going to work and I miss doing what I do, it's actually been nice to have this time.
