“Am I actually doing this?” Rylan Clark-Neal Joins Tinder Amid Divorce From Husband Dan After Joking About Setting Up A Dating Profile
A verified profile featuring Rylan Clark-Neal’s photo has appeared on dating app Tinder, after the TV host confirmed his divorce from husband Dan Neal.

According to The Sun, his profile reads: ‘Tall normal guy – 6 feet – am I really on this?’

The former X Factor contestant was able to joke about his difficult year and shed light on the tough times at Thursday’s Attitude Awards at The Roundhouse in London.
He joked, ‘Sorry, I was a little distracted. I tried Grindr. to download [a dating app designed for the LGBTQ+ community]. It’s been 10 years! What a year.’
He was there to present the Icon Award to pop group Steps, which has seen a resurgence in popularity in recent years.

Rylan has long been a fan of the dance-pop group, rocking the charts in the 1990s with songs like Tragedy and One For Sorrow – and recently saw their seventh studio album What the Future Holds Pt 2 hit number two on the UK chart.
At the award ceremony, Rylan gave a special mention to singer Claire Richards, 43, for the support she has provided him as a friend over the years.
He said: “Personally, one of the members of this band is like my big sister and for the past four months – probably the most difficult time of my life – she’s been there for me.
“I probably wouldn’t be presenting this award tonight without her.”
The This Morning host surprised onlookers when he left the room with a mysterious male companion strapped to his arm.
Rylan has previously released a statement regarding his split with police officer Dan.
He said, “I’ve made some mistakes that I deeply regret and which inevitably led to the breakdown of our marriage. I took time off from work because I am not in a good place right now and looking for help.
“I’m trying to take each day at a time and would like to thank everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time.”
A Rylan representative has been contacted for comment.
