Rylan Clark-Neal reveals truth about his 'axe' from This Morning

Rylan Clark-Neal

Rylan Clark-Neal has spoken out about rumours he was 'sacked' from ITV's This Morning.

The X Factor star turned TV presenter announced last month he'd be leaving the show from January.

Discussing his departure, Rylan explained on ITV's Lorraine: "I’ve been working constantly for five years and I just need time to myself."

Rylan previously took to Twitter this week to dismiss the idea he had been fired.

He wrote on Twitter: "Rumours in the press why I'm "leaving" or been "axed" from @ThisMorning.

"Truth is I need a break. I’ve been working constantly for 5 years and I need time to myself."

Rylan added: "I’ll still be at Big Bro. I just need to take some time to myself. That’s all. I’ll be back soon."

However the message prompted a flurry of criticism from some of Rylan's followers, forcing him to delete the tweet.

"Try working 20 years for the NHS we could all do with a break!" one replied.

Another commented: "I've been working constantly for 37 years! Oh, to be able to take some time off? It would be lovely."

Eventually removing his original tweet, Rylan replaced it with an eye-roll emoji.

He then posted: "WHEN YOU PUT A NICE LITTLE TWEET UP AND PEOPLE PIPE UP..... I’ll just keep it simple....... I’ve not been sacked from @thismorning just having some time off that’s all. Night."

So at least that's all cleared up then.
