Rylan Clark-Neal has admitted that his six-year marriage to Dan Neal is over.
The TV presenter also confessed that it’s his own mistakes that he “deeply regrets” which were the cause and that he needed to take some time off work to deal with it.
Rylan, 32, has been absent for the last seven weeks from his Radio 2 show and also missed hosting EuroVision and This Morning.
He has also been taking a break from social media.
Rylan said in a statement to the Sun: “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.”
He continued: “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 you to everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time.”
Ex-Big Brother star Dan, 41, is understood to have moved out of the Essex home he rented with Rylan.
It has been speculated that the split may have been because Rylan wanted to have children.
Furthermore, friends of the couple have reportedly revealed that they are not surprised by the recent break-up, as they were aware that the couple both wanted different things from the relationship.
Sources claimed to MailOnline that although Rylan was happy to play step-dad to Dan's son Cameron, he was desperate to have a family of his own.
The source claimed: "Rylan loved being a step-dad and was wonderful but it just couldn't fill the gap he felt for wanting his own children."
The One Show presenter has previously openly discussed his desire to start a family with Dan.
But it's reported that Dan was more focused on his television career and was looking to find fame once again.
Insiders revealed that the former Big Brother contestant had several showreels created to help potentially catapult his career.
Despite his best efforts, Dan never gained much television work.
The former policeman also hoped that after he hosted ITV's This Morning alongside Rylan in 2017 his presenting career would flourish, but it unfortunately failed to do so.
