Rylan Clark issues call out as he makes complaint about his love life after ditching UK for work

Rylan Clark issued a tongue-in-cheek call out to his followers as he appeared to make a complaint about his love life. The TV and radio star is currently living it up in Italy with another famous face.

But it is for work as after spending some time working on a project in Greece, Rylan jetted over to Italy where he moved on to filming for his next TV gig with Robert Rinder. The former Strictly It Takes Two host and Rob, known to many as Judge Rinder, are set to star in a new BBC travel show which will see him and Rob Rinder explore the art and culture Italy has to offer.

The three-part BBC Two series will see the TV personalities follow in the footsteps of the romantic poet Lord Byron and English aristocrats who took on the Grand Tour, a classic trip through Europe popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. With a working title of Rob And Rylan’s Grand Tour, the series will see them visit artistic treasures in Venice, Florence and Rome.

Rylan has since been updating his fans and followers with some snaps from his filming trip and in his latest Instagram post, it appears the 34-year-old was referencing his love life as he shared a selfie of himself, Rob and his pal and makeup artist Bernice Cole.

The pictures showed the trio appearing to be enjoying a drink outside but Rylan's frown suggested he wasn't impressed as he perched on a separate table to Tob and Bernice. "Always 3rd wheeling," he started the message alongside the post to his Instagram Story.

He then added: "If you're in Florence, hit me up," alongside a string of crying laughing emojis. It comes after Rylan shut down speculation after he shared a snap that appeared to suggest he was with a mystery man.

Last week in a different Instagram Story post, BBC Radio 2 presenter Rylan was seen flashing some bling while in Venice as he was seen sporting a ring while filming as he posted a picture of his leg in beige chinos with his hand resting on his thigh. And quick to put a stop to the rumour mill before it started turning, Rylan followed up the post with a typed-out message across a black background which read: "That’s my right hand, FYI [for your information]."

That message came after Rylan's fans thought he had posted a cheeky 'reveal' of his new partner. He ended up having to confirm it was, in fact, him in one of his recent social media posts as he put on a cool, topless display. Fans were quick to wonder whether the former X Factor star was auditioning to be the next James Bond as the video showed him emerging from a crystal clear pool.

He had his back to the camera but those watching could see Rylan slicking back his trademark dark locks that had been submerged in the water under the burning sun in Greece Posting it to both Instagram and Twitter, Rylan wrote: "Coming soon…" But as the comments came flooding in, it appears Rylan needed to clarify something as he replied to his own tweet: "That’s me btw ffs."

Meanwhile, Rylan got fans talking over the weekend as he debuted a drastic new look. Or not so new if you've followed him since his days on The X Factor when having long hair wasn't unusual for the star. Rylan showed off his new long locks as he shared two photos with his 1.6 million Instagram followers.

He first teased his stylish new barnet before later posting a picture with his long straight hair on full display, with the caption 'Venezia'. Fans quickly took to the comments with one writing: "Stop it". Another said "Ha ha WTF??," as a third added, "Jesus Christ."

But later that day, the former Celebrity Big Brother winner then confused fans as he shared a post with his usual short dark trim back on show. Looking out at the views across Venice, Rylan wrote: "Front and back Firenze."
