Rylan Clark-Neal makes big change after split from husband

By Emma Wilson & Lottie Gibbons

Rylan Clark-Neal appears to have changed his stage name after his splitting from his husband.

In June, Rylan confirmed he and Dan Neal had parted ways after six years of marriage.

It now appears that Rylan has changed his name, dropping his hyphenated surname of 'Clark-Neal' from his social media account and BBC's It Takes Two.

He now only appears in credits as 'Rylan'.

Rylan and Dan began dating in 2013, when the police officer appeared on Big Brother, and Rylan was presenting the spin-off show, Big Brother’s Bit on the Side, reports the Mirror.

They got engaged during a romantic trip to Paris in 2014, and tied the knot one year later, in a star-studded ceremony that featured Eamonn Holmes, Ruth Langsford, Katie Price, and Emma Willis on the guest list.

Rylan confirmed the end of his marriage with a statement in June.

He said: “Following reports about Dan and I spending time apart, I feel I 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 pulled out of several work commitments - including hosting the semi-final coverage of the Eurovision Song Contest in May.#

He added: “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 thank everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time."

Rylan also returned to helm his Radio 2 show in September, after taking 10 weeks off.

He told his listeners on his return: “It does feel good to be back and I am feeling better."
