Earlier this month, Rylan confirmed that he would be making a return soon during the launch of This Morning Live. The TV star confessed that he simply went away on a break to "sort some other stuff out" whilst praising ITV for being so good. "It’s been really, really nice having a bit of time sorting some other stuff out," he told HELLO!. "ITV have just been so good with me that I am in a position that I need some time off and they let me." Clearing up any rumours, Rylan added: "People are saying that I have been sacked, that I have left, that I have a terminal illness. But no, everything is fine. I am just having a break."
