Dan, a former police officer, was a contestant on Big Brother, and he met Rylan through the spin-off show Bit On The Side. The couple started dating in 2013 and announced their engagement the following year.
At the time of their split, Rylan released a statement that read: "Following reports about Dan and I spending time apart, I feel I have to speak out - as the way it is being reported is unfair. I have made a number of mistakes which I deeply regret and have inevitably led to the breakdown of our marriage."
He continued: "I have taken time away from work as I am not in a good place at the moment and am seeking help. I am trying to take each day at a time and would like to thank everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time."
