‘They’ve finally done it’: Rylan Clark-Neal celebrates his brother’s long-awaited wedding as he shares rare post since splitting with husband Dan
The TV presenter, 32, has kept a low-profile on social media since it was revealed he has split from husband Dan Neal.
Rylan was seen for the first time since news of the break-up surfaced at the beginning of August as he attended his brother Jamie’s wedding in Essex.

‘After 32 years (genuinely!) my actual age (again genuinely!) they’ve finally done it. Congratulations to my brother and sister-in-law. Love you both,’ Rylan shared alongside a photo from the nuptials.
It saw his brother’s wife proudly wearing her wedding band as she rested her hand on groom Jamie’s shoulder.
Rylan returned to social media in July after a two-month hiatus.
On his return, he shared a statement thanking fans for the ‘love and kindness’ they have shown him over a difficult few months.
The former Big Brother’s Bit On The Side host penned: ‘I just wanted to write a message to thank you all for the love and kindness you have shown us.

Quiet: Rylan’s last post on Instagram before taking a two-month hiatus was a selfie he took with his mum wearing matching face masks
‘We are currently prioritising our mental health and looking after the ones around us we love the most. I am working towards getting back to the jobs I love in due course.’
As he signed off, Rylan added: ‘Thank you for being patient with me.’
Rylan’s last post on Instagram before his statement was shared was on 9 May and was a picture of himself and his mum ‘colour co-ordinating’ in matching masks.
It was revealed that Rylan and Dan went their separate ways in June almost six years after they tied the knot, with Rylan announcing he is ‘seeking help’ for issues following his seven-week absence from BBC Radio 2.
Last month it was revealed that former Pussycat Doll Nicole and Simon Cowell are ‘amongst the stars rallying around the presenter’ who is in a ‘very dark place’ amid the breakdown of his marriage.
It was reported that Katie Price has ‘been his rock’ as he comes to terms with what has happened, while Ruth Langsford has also been offering her support.
A source told Closer: ‘Katie Price in particular has been his rock over the last few weeks, and given she’s been through three marriage splits herself, she understands the torment he’s going through.
‘Nicole has also been messaging him and has given him a list of books that have helped her through painful break-ups.’
The source further revealed to the publication that Rylan was in a ‘very dark place’ but found it ‘hugely comforting’ to have his friends supporting him.
In June, Rylan broke his silence on the split, saying he made a ‘number of mistakes’ that led to the ‘breakdown’ of their marriage.
In a statement, he said: ‘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. I have taken time away from work as I am not in a good place at the moment and am seeking help.’
Rylan added he is trying to take each day at a time and thanked his fans for their support and respecting the couple’s privacy.
