There are also moments when fans approach him with comments like this,
“They’re always surprised by how tall I am. And they often say, ‘Oh, you’re much better looking in real life,’ which is a bit of a backhanded compliment. Does that mean I look like a freak on TV?”

“LOL at the height difference of @Rylan and @GeriHalliwell on This Morning.”
“Can’t believe the comparison there.”
“Lol the height difference between @Rylan and @GeriHalliwell! Too funny :)”
“Rylan should be the 6th Spice Girl.”

“I won Big Brother, I then got asked to host Big Brother’s Bit On The Side. It gave me a career. It then gave me my husband and gave me the life I have now.
“Without BB I don’t think any of this would have happened. It was the best apprenticeship I could have asked for.”

In 2015, Rylan married Dan Neal, a former police officer who was also a Big Brother contestant. They are now living together with Dan’s son, Cameron who is 19 years old.
Naturally, Rylan had a taste of parenting with his little family.
“It’s the same as being a normal dad. He rinses me dry, I slap him about when he’s naughty… no, I don’t, obviously…but it’s the same as being a biological dad.
“He lives with us. I moan at him to clean up, he cleans up…he cuts the grass, I give him some money…it’s just very normal.”
“I don’t like to talk about sex with Cameron, but I can. But I do warn him – if you make me a grandad at 30, I’ll cut it off.”
Looks like Rylan wouldn’t be needing any help at all!

He mixed up two vastly different topics while answering an interview question!
“In 2013, I had to do The Wright Stuff with about an hour’s sleep. I was asked, ‘What do you make of the situation in Mali?’ and I said, ‘Well, I’ve not seen the film but I know the dog dies in the end.”
“They were talking about the civil war, and the whole audience took an inward breath. I thought, ‘Should I not have revealed the end of the film?’.”
He confused it with Jennifer Aniston’s Marley And Me!

I’ve just awoken from the madness. Been told we’re now just under A MILLION POUNDS. I genuinely cannot thank each person that has donated enough, and thank you so much to everyone who came down to show their support and see me through. I’ll forever be grateful. #KaRYoke @BBCCiN
A few years back, Rylan took a break from hosting This Morning for the sake of his mental health. He had been working crazy hours on multiple jobs and it started taking a toll on his mental health.
“Some have said I’m having a baby, getting divorced and terminally ill. I just needed a break for my head, for my body, for my peace of mind.
“’I just needed a little break from working three, four, five jobs. That’s all. I don’t get holidays, I’m self-employed.
“That’s a really big risk for anyone in telly. There’s always 100 people that are ready to do your job – but I needed to do it.”
Fortunately, he was back healthier and zestier than before!
