Rylan has been missing from the world of showbiz since before it was announced in June that his marriage to former Big Brother contestant Dan Neal had come to an end
Rylan Clark-neal Says He’s Taking A Break From Social Media After Constant Trolling
Rylan Clark-Neal is set to make his career comeback later this month with the launch of a podcast – making this his first return to work since the news of his shock split from husband Dan Neal.
News of his podcast – which is said to be called The Ry-Union – comes after it was revealed in June that Rylan and his husband of six years, 41-year-old Dan, had called time on their marriage.

Breaking news of Rylan’s new podcast, The Sun quote a source stating: “Rylan’s new podcast is really exciting and is giving him a real trip down memory lane [and] he will be speaking with people who were integral parts of his journey.
“Katie Price has agreed to be one of his guests [and] Cher Lloyd, who was on The X Factor two years before Rylan in 2010, will also come on to speak to him.
“It’s going to be a really uplifting and fun series and will give fans even more insight into Rylan and his background.”
Rylan found fame on The X Factor back in 2012 where he was cast as something of a joke performer on the show – although he ultimately had the last laugh as his career skyrocketed away from music as he landed presenting roles on shows including This Morning and It Takes Two.
Before he was a star on the ITV singing contest – which last month was cancelled after 17 years – Rylan featured on Katie Price’s model-searching show Signed By Katie Price in 2011.
He also appeared as a model on John Bishop’s Britain in 2010.

Rylan met policeman-turned Big Brother contestant Dan in 2013 – with the pair going on to get engaged in 2014, and married in 2015.
Two months ago, it was revealed the marriage was over and that Rylan had been left “in a dark place” over the relationship’s collapse.
The star has been absent from his main jobs – including his radio show on BBC Radio 2 – and told fans he was picking up his life following his marriage breakdown.
Taking to Instagram last month, Rylan explained: “I just wanted to write a message to thank you all for the love and kindness you’ve shown us.
“We are currently prioritising our mental health and looking after the ones around us we love most.
“I am working towards getting back to the jobs I love in due course. Thank you for being patient with me.”
Meanwhile, Katie Price is said to be among the stars rallying around Rylan to help him get his life back together.
A source told Closer magazine previously: “Katie Price in particular has been his rock over the last few weeks, and given she’s been through three marriage splits herself, she understands the torment he’s going through.
“Nicole [Scherzinger] has also been messaging him and has given him a list of books that have helped her through painful break-ups.”
