Rylan Clark-Neal was reportedly offered one year off from his BBC Radio 2 job after appearing to have a breakdown off air.

The beloved 32-year-old presenter, who is currently going through the breakup of his marriage, is said to have concerned bosses after crying during his show.

The Sun claims Rylan’s colleagues cued music to give him a moment to compose himself.

‘Rylan’s one of the BBC’s favourite stars,’ an insider said. ‘When he returned to work everyone supported him but when he broke down people were concerned he’d come back too fast.

‘One of the BBC’s top brass was at the meeting. They even suggested he take a year’s break to focus on himself. Ultimately, they want Rylan to feel supported and happy.’

The source added to the publication: ‘Following some time away from his show, we’re delighted Rylan is back on air.’

Rylan announced in a statement posted in July that he and his husband Dan Neal were splitting after six years of marriage.

‘I just wanted to write a message to thank you all for the love and kindness you have shown us,’ he said.

‘We are currently prioritising our mental health and looking after the ones around us we love most.

‘I am working towards getting back to the jobs I love in due course. Thank you for being patient with me.’

Rylan tied the knot with former Big Brother contestant and ex-police officer Dan in November 2015 after two years of dating.

The famous face has hosted his BBC Radio 2 show since 2019, taking over from Zoe Ball.

He’s also guest-hosted The One Show a number of times and shares presenting duties of Strictly Come Dancing sister show It Takes Two with Janette Manrara, which airs Monday to Fridays.
