Last month the news broke that Rylan Clark-Neal and his husband Dan had ended their six-year marriage.
Now the X Factor star, 32, is said to be leaning on his celebrity pals to help him get through his split after he confirmed the shocking news online just a few weeks ago.
It has been reported that the TV presenter, who recently revealed lockdown was "strange" for him and his husband Dan before their split, is being surrounded by support from the likes of Nicole Scherzinger and Simon Cowell as he works through this difficult time.
A close source to the star revealed to Closer magazine that Katie Price has “been his rock” as he slowly adjusts to his newly single life, while his co-presenter Ruth Langsford has offered her ongoing support.

The insider told the publication: “Katie Price 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.”
The source went on to share how the Essex native was in a “very dark place” after he announced the break up publicly but found it “hugely comforting” to have his loving friends supporting him every step of the way.
The star returned to social media on following the news of his split as he celebrated his nephew’s 21st birthday in style with a mouth-watering birthday cake complete with Ciroc vodka bottles for the birthday boy.
He also took the time to thank his loyal legion of fans for their continued support during this challenging time.

“We are currently prioritising out mental health and looking after the ones around us we love most.

He added: “I am working towards getting back to the jobs I love in due course. Thank you for being patient with me.”

“I am trying to take each day at a time and would like to say thank you to everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time.”
