Rylan opens up about quitting Twitter: 'I don't need the homophobia'

RYLAN ON QUITTING TWITTER: 'I'VE HAD A DRAMA THIS WEEK'

Who could have predicted that the man who rose to fame for sporting gold lame leggings and sobbing for a solid 23 minutes when he got through to the X Factor finals, would have turned his 15 minutes of fame into a credible showbiz career?

But being a thoroughly decent guy has seen Rylan Clark-Neal go on to present on Big Brother, The Xtra Factor, This Morning and now, a brand new quiz show Babushka.

But this week, Rylan has decided to come off Twitter after the announcement that the show will be placed temporarily in The Chase's 5 o'clock slot.

'I have had a drama this week. I'm not annoyed at them [fans of The Chase], I'm annoyed at the online media. What they've done with their headlines, is 'Rylan's axed The Chase' - I was getting tweets saying 'I can't believe The Chase has been axed for you'.

'It's like a new Chinese whispers that's got out of control. Ultimately, I've come off Twitter because I felt like I'd gone back five years. I don't need the homophobia and everything in my life.'

'There was one morning in January, Pollyanna was 10-weeks-old, and I just woke up and I thought, "I can't feel my legs". Because I don't want to. I don't want to get up, walk and get out of bed. I thought if I don't do something for myself now, it's going to be that downward spiral into darkness.'

'It was interesting listening to what you were talking about earlier, about bottling up your feelings and not talking about it – which is something that I did,' Jane explained.

'I’m quite an emotional, heart on my sleeve, kind of person – but that was something I chose to keep to myself because it was my own personal journey.'
