Rylan Clark-Neal, 32, has insisted he ensured his Strictly Come Dancing 2020 and BBC Radio 2 colleagues were not put at risk after he came into contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus outside of work.

The former X Factor star addressed concerns from fans after he shared the news this morning in a Twitter post.

Rylan confirmed that he is self-isolating and will be unable to host Strictly’s spin-off show It Takes Two and present his radio show for the next couple of weeks.

He tweeted: “I found out this week that someone I have been in recent contact with outside of work has tested positive for coronavirus. I am therefore now following the government guidelines and having to self isolate.

“I have sought a Covid test and thankfully that has returned a negative result.  

“That does mean I will miss the next two weeks of Strictly It Takes Two and my BBC Radio 2 Saturday show. 

“I look forward to being back soon and wish all the couples good luck for this weekend.”
