NEWLY single Rylan Clark has asked the BBC to call him ‘Rylan’ – after dropping husband Dan Neal’s last name.
The It Takes Two host was credited by his first name only when he appeared on Strictly spin-off show, while co-host Janette Manrara was credited by her full name.
“He thought it was best to have a fresh start and the easiest way to do that was to go back to just one name,” Strictly sources tell The Sun.
“He didn’t want to make a big fuss – just to change it onscreen.”
Any reference to the popular presenter's last names have also been deleted from his Twitter account.
Rylan recently returned to work after a break to focus on his marriage to Dan, who he tied the knot with in November 2015.
The TV favourite put his work on Radio 2 and The One Show on pause for five months, finally returning to TV in September.
At the time, he told The Sun: “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.
“I am trying to take each day at a time and would like to thank you to everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time.”
However, it was reported last month that the “only way forward” for the couple was to divorce, and Rylan stopped wearing his wedding ring late last month.
Rylan’s reps have been approached for comment.
