Ryan Clark will return to our screens tonight – and he’s not alone.
Starting off as a singer on The X Factor, Rylan shot to fame on Celebrity Big Brother in 2013 and is now worth a whopping £4.8 million, according to CelebrityNetWorth.
The 33-year-old is now back at Celebrity Gogglebox alongside beloved mother Linda, who quickly won the hearts of the nation by starring with her son.
The two quickly won the hearts of viewers as humorous and iconic duos as they reacted to some of television’s most puzzling moments.
The pair, who are clearly bonded, were missed by thousands of viewers following the show’s absence last year.
In 2020, Rylan told The Mirror: “It’s going to be another year, we’ve been really lucky to be a part of the first and the second.

“It will all just depend on what we are doing and if my mother is well enough.
“We would never say that we never didn’t know where we would end up.”
Linda’s battle with the Crohns meant she not only had to miss the show, but also had to miss her famous son performing on The X Factor.
In 2019, Rylan discussed his mother’s illness with the judges on ITV’s daytime talk show, Loose Women.
He explains: “My mother has suffered from severe Crohn’s disease her whole life and I don’t think Crohn’s disease gets talked about as much. [should].
“I almost lost my mother last year. The third time.”
In another shocking revelation, in October 2021, Rylan shocked listeners when he revealed on his popular BBC Radio 2 show that his mother Linda had been diagnosed with skin cancer .
The very lucky radio presenter confirmed that the condition was “not life-threatening”.
“I should probably tell people what we’re talking about,” he said.
“What a mummy, and all is well, she has skin cancer on her face, but she’s perfectly fine.”
“It’s not life-threatening and it’s only spread a little bit, so we’re going to cut it all out.”

The original Gogglebox fan-favorite won hearts in the UK with her hilarious comments about the show.
After her days on the show, Rylan optimized his motherly intelligence and love from the nation by appointing her as a very special guest on his radio show.
At the time, he announced the discontinuation on his Instagram page.
He shared a snap of the couple alongside the tagline, “Rylan & Linda on Saturday”.
Rylan captioned the post: “Next Saturday… God help us!!!!” – but it looks like his celebrity friends as well as fans are all here to collaborate. “
