Rylan Clark suffered from a nervous breakdown – recovery tips
The 32-year-old has already taken a hiatus to return to his role as a presenter last month where he is a big fan favorite. But concerns over his all-too-quick return after his divorce from ex-husband Dan Neal prompted the BBC to suggest he take another extended hiatus to “focus on himself”. Rylan has yet to comment on the matter, but it’s clear from her on-air show that the star is struggling.
Rylan and Dan started dating in 2013. The couple met when Dan was a Big Brother contestant and Rylan hosted the spinoff show Bit on the Side.
After getting engaged a year later, the couple married for six years until Rylan confirmed their separation in June this year.
In a candid statement, Rylan felt he had to “speak out” on the matter. He told The Sun: âFollowing reports that Dan and I are spending time apart, I feel like I have to speak up – because the way this is reported is unfair.
“I made a number of mistakes which I deeply regret and which inevitably led to the breakdown of our marriage.”

Continuing to explain that he was “not in the right place right now,” the star decided to take a break from the job he loves and focus more on his sanity, adding that he was trying to “ask for help”.
Now known as Rylan in the credits of Strictly It Takes Two, the star has eliminated any chance of reconciliation with her partner.
A source from Strictly added, âHe thought it was better to make a fresh start and the easiest way to do it was to go back to just one name.
“He didn’t want to make a big fuss – just to change it onscreen.”
MedicalNewsToday also highlights 21 common features of a nervous breakdown, including feelings of anxiety, depression, emotional exhaustion, sleeplessness, tremors, difficulty thinking, and in the worst-case scenario, suicidal thoughts.
According to figures from the Mental Health Foundation, one in 20 people are likely to suffer from “clinical” depression, that is, severe depression, a disabling disorder including breakdown.
As Dr David Bell, consultant psychiatrist and psychotherapist at the Tavistock Center, confirmed, âBlackout is a general term people use to describe a very, very wide variety of experiences.
Some of the common ways to treat and reduce the effects of a nervous breakdown or severe depressive episode is through therapy. One of the most popular types is talk therapy – especially cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), as well as antidepressant medications.
