Despite Rylan Clark-Neal’s larger than life TV persona, he actually likes to keep his home life incredibly private and low-key, and it was no different when he wed partner Dan Neal in 2015. The Ready, Steady, Cook host tried to keep his nuptials top secret, until a close friend of his sold the story to a newspaper and he was forced to cut ties with his pal altogether!

The interviewer probed Rylan for a name, but he said: "I've never said… and I won't, but she knows!" but his remark divulged that it was one of Rylan’s female guests, who was also a celebrity.

The star admitted that he then cut her from his life, confessing: "You do something like that to me, that’s it, that’s not on."

Rylan’s wedding guest list included many famous faces such as Eamonn Holmes, Ruth Langsford, Katie Price, Amy Childs, Claire Richards, as well as Matt and Emma Willis.
