Rylan Clark has revealed that he has come out of his divorce stronger, after taking some time to ‘disappear’ from the spotlight, on Friday.
The presenter, 33, who went through a highly-publicised breakup his husband Dan Neal last year, admitted that he was ‘glad he went through it in a f***** up way.’
At the time, he took a seven week break from television following their separation in June, after six years of marriage.

In an interview with The Sun, Rylan detailed: ‘What was right for me was to disappear to get bad, to feel s**t, to lose myself. I didn’t want to that, but it happened.
‘It’s only now all these months on that I can sit there and go, ‘I’m glad I’ve been through that in a real f***** up way’ because I know I will never let myself let anyone let me feel like that.’
The TV personality explained that he now saw the heartbreaking event as a ‘blessing’ and has created more boundaries with himself as he now has more power to say ‘no.’

He said: ‘I’ve actually come back with the greatest of respect without sounding like an absolute p***k – I’ve always been nice to everyone and been a yes yes yes man.’
This comes as Rylan revealed Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes along with Steps’ Claire Richards were ‘his rocks’ during his divorce which saw him hospitalised for ‘safety reasons’.
The TV personality who previously confessed he ‘didn’t know if he could continue to live’ during the difficult time, tragically claimed only a handful of friends stuck by him during his break from the spotlight.

He’s now gearing up to release a tell-all book titled Ten, and teased a deeply personal chapter where he will ‘tell the truth’, while speaking exclusively to MailOnline at the No7 Pro Derm Scan launch party.
The former X Factor contestant said: ‘I can tell you that the book is gonna be a collection of lessons I’ve learnt over the last 10 years on different subjects like fame and celebrity, money, friends.
‘But there will be a chapter called 2021 that will be a follow up to the last one.
‘Only a handful of friends stuck by me through it all. Ruth and Eamonn were very much there for me, Claire from Steps.’

Rylan met the Tragedy songstress, 44, during their stint on Celebrity Big Brother in 2013, and counts Ruth and Eamonn, both 62, as former This Morning co-stars.
He continued: ‘Now readers will know the three of them were my rocks. They were there, just to be there when I needed them.’
Rylan, who published his first memoir The Life of Rylan back in 2016, went on to admit how it’s been ‘hard to revisit’ his recent past in his upcoming release.
He said: ‘If I’m being honest, it’s been hard to write the book and revisit everything but when people read it, and when they know the truth, they’ll understand.
‘Every single word of that chapter I debated about including. But I’ve got to be real, I did it the last time, it’s the reason why I’m still here, to be honest.’
