‘what is the point?’ I believed. I lost what I thought was everything, the one thing I always wanted. A man I loved. family of my own. And now it’s gone.
So I tried to finish it. I won’t go into details because I don’t think it’s fair to my mom, but thank God it didn’t work out.

He added from telling Dan that he cheated on him: I woke up one morning and decided to tell my ex that I cheated on him years ago. He left. He told me it was over and that was it.
It comes after Raylan revealed he was rushed to hospital twice after having his ‘heart stopped’ last year.

After his six-year marriage broke down, his TV favorite took five months out of the spotlight due to his declining health.
He has previously claimed that he only fell to nine stones which resulted in him being hospitalized for “safety reasons” after refusing to eat.
He told the audience at the Royal Festival Hall in London: “I ended up twice last year in the back of an ambulance because my heart failed.”
After the hospital dash, he was given an injection that helped his heart start beating again in a more regular fashion.
He explained: ‘I just remember that the bullet went in and suddenly this feeling from the middle of your body, in both directions, almost took you, and you just stop and my heart stops.’
There are only seven faces and this bright light is looking at me. Then I took a breath. And they were like, “It’s in a natural rhythm.”
I was like, “What’s going on f**k?”
He went on to say that his family members were convinced he was only experiencing heartbreak, but he was confident it was more serious.

I knew it wasn’t right. It turned out that my heart had to be restarted. I remember putting in rhesus and I had all these pads with all these wires and didn’t understand what it was.
He continued, “Only after that I said: What is the purpose of the pads?” And they said, ‘If you don’t take a breath…because we had to restart you electrically.’ You don’t even think about it when you’re there. So not only did I become mentally ill, I also developed a physical illness.
This came after Raylan revealed that his body was “locked up” and that his mother, Linda, was convinced he had suffered a stroke during his health troubles.
The presenter admitted that he couldn’t even talk and that he gave a “stutter” speech while he was away from work.

Now, he’s appearing on Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place PodcastThe TV personality said, “My body has completely shut down. I won’t eat. I went through a phase where I couldn’t even talk, which might be very helpful for some people.”
My speech was sluggish. My mom thought I was having a stroke. My body is just gone. I went down to ninth at six feet four.
A passionate fan of Eurovision, he has been hanging in the semi-finals since 2018, but his notable absence during the 2021 competition raised red flags among friends.
Rylan continued: “ Two days before I was due to participate in Eurovision, everyone knew that when I wasn’t at Eurovision, something was wrong.
If I had, I probably wouldn’t have experienced such a rapid decline. And when I say a quick no, I feel like minutes. I felt like I was hit hard and I was shutting down.
The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate, who claims he hasn’t stopped working since his stint on The X Factor in 2012, admitted he “needed” a break.
He said: ‘It was tough but when thinking, yeah, I needed to stop. It was probably a 10-year merger. I haven’t stopped since the day I went to The X Factor.
Nothing stopped. I do not regret stopping. I feel like if I tried to keep going, I might have handled things better from a personal point of view. I do not regret that I stopped.
