Rylan Clark-Neal has spoken out following concern after he was recorded asking someone to “give him some gear”.
The 33-year-old, who has spoken candidly about struggling following his split from husband Dan Neal, 41, was caught on camera joking that he would “f***ing kill” the person recording him unless they deleted the video.
The story, which was released by the Sunday Mirror, prompted national backlash, with many people looking to defend the Strictly: It Takes Two host.
Comedian Chris Addison wrote: “Team Rylan, personally,” while Coronation Street star Charlie Condou said: “I can’t remember the last time I saw such an overwhelming outpouring of love for someone on Twitter. You can’t f*** with a national treasure like Rylan!”
Rylan himself responded to the numerous kind tweets after the story broke. After initially dismissing the reports as a “slow news day”, he then posted on his Twitter page.
“Cheers for your messages,” he wrote. “Proper decent. Not usually expected on here. Thank you.”
He accompanied his message with a meme, which wrote: “What doesn’t kill you makes you Sonia,” with a picture of EastEnders actress Natalie Cassidy.
The reports come just one week after Rylan said openly he sought hospital treatment following the divorce from his ex-husband Dan.
“I’d got to the point where I didn’t know if I wanted to come back. Or whether I would be able to do this job again,” he told The Observer.
“It got bad. Like, very bad. And I didn’t think it would get better. I needed help.
“I’m the last person that my friends would ever believe could feel as low as I did. I was having thoughts and doing things that made me… f***ed up, for want of a better word… I didn’t think I’d be here. I didn’t think I could continue… I didn’t think I’d actually come back. I was very… gone.”
