RYLAN Clark has opened up about “drinking more” after going through a tough time – but insists he’s not an alcoholic.
Earlier this month, the TV presenter revealed he had been hospitalized after suffering a breakdown following his split from husband Dan Neal.
12 months is not easy for Rylan, 33 years old – who has the marriage ended last year – saw him lose a stone and drink more wine.
The singer revealed not only the exercise regime he’s working to get in control – but also his lifestyle after being “more drunk than usual”.
Speaking to Davina McCall on his Ry-Union podcast, he explained, “Recently, I’ve been going out a couple of times and getting drunk more than usual.
“I’m pretty honest about it – I’ve been going through a rough time, it’s not like I’m saying I have a problem with the drinks, because I definitely haven’t.”
It comes days after he opened up about having to overhaul his life after Weight dropped drastically after the shock of breaking up his relationship.
Speaking on The Hund Basic Guide To Life, the former X Factor star revealed he recently went on an “exercise journey” to try to change his life.
“Last year I had a bit of a hard time and I took some time out,” he explains. “Next thing I know I’m like a nine-foot stone, and I’m like four feet.
“I was thinking, I have a gym – I only really go there once – so I might as well use it. So I met with a trainer and asked him if he had one. Can you make me look better?”
Rylan has been added The Observer that he decided to be hospitalized at one point for “safety reasons” when he decided to end the relationship.
“I’m having thoughts and doing things that drive me … crazy, wanting a better word,” he explains. “I don’t understand why I’m doing this to myself. So I go out for a bit.”
Talking about what he learned while there, Rylan said: “That I always say yes to everything and I nod and smile.
“But now if there’s something I really don’t want to do, I’ll say no. I’ve learned to be more in control. I haven’t been in control for so long, I feel like Britney!”
Rylan is currently going through a divorce from her ex-husband, 6-year-old police officer Dan Neal.
The couple, who met on the show Big Brother, where Dan was a contestant and Rylan was a host, broke up last summer.
Speaking of his ordeal, he vowed to get fit, saying, “I got sick and I lost weight, I’m under 10 stone – and I’m 6 feet 4 inches tall, so that’s not good.
“The honest truth is it happened. I didn’t deal with what happened and now I am. I was not feeling well and it was a very difficult time for me.”
Rylan spent a lot of time with his mother Linda, whom he considers his rock. “My mother was very worried about me, as were all of my family,” he said.
“I didn’t just disappear for four months – it didn’t just happen.
“She’s been a lifesaver for me and one of my biggest regrets this year is making her unwell. I need to get back to me.”
