Strictly Come Dancing 2019: Rylan Clark-Neal reveals he won’t compete in more reality TV | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

This Morning relief presenter Rylan Clark-Neal found fame on X Factor back in 2012 before competing in and winning Celebrity Big Brother in 2013.

But the 30-year-old doesn’t want to compete in the hugely popular reality show Strictly Come Dancing, or any other reality show for that matter.

Now, he has revealed why he wouldn’t participate on the BBC contest.

First speaking on why he wouldn’t compete in Dancing On Ice, he told Digital Spy: ”It's a time thing. I would love nothing more than to become a professional ice skater but I would rather do it privately. Do some private lessons then do it!"

He then went on to discuss whether he would take part in any other reality programmes.

Rylan explained: ”As a contestant, no. It's how I started and I've been so lucky to have the career that I've had in reality TV and I will never forget where I came from, and that's why I'm a massive supporter of reality TV.

“But I enjoy hosting too much, or it would take a lot of money."

Rylan has since gone on to host Celebrity Big Brother’s Bit On The Side as well as provided commentary for the semi-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest.

When Strictly returns later this year, judge Darcey Bussell will not be on the panel again.

After seven years on the show the ballerina has chosen to step down from her judging position.

In a statement the 49-year-old said: "It has been a complete privilege for me to be part of Strictly, working with such a talented team.

"I have enjoyed every minute of my time and will miss everyone from my fellow judges, the presenters, the dancers, the musicians, the entire backstage team, and especially the viewers of the show, who have been so supportive.

"I am not leaving because of any upset or disagreement at all, I am just stepping away to give more focus to my many other commitments in dance, after seven truly wonderful years that I can't imagine having gone any better."

Other judges still on the show are Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli as well as head judge Shirley Ballas.

On news of Darcey’s exit, Shirley took to Twitter to wish her well.

She wrote: “We've had the most laughs and fun times on the show. Today is certainly the end of an era.

“Thank you for holding my hand all the way and being such an incredible friend.

“You were my rock when I was new to the show and have always been so kind.

“I for one will dearly miss my partner in crime and our girly chats. It just won't be the same without you!”

Strictly Come Dancing is expected to return to BBC One later this year.
