Host: Clark-Neal- Biography

Clark-Neal was born Ross Richard Clark on 25 October 1988 in Stepney, East London, and grew up in Stanford-le-Hope, Essex, to mother Linda Clark. He was raised by his mother and his older brother Jamie (1974).

In 2007, he applied for Big Brother 8, but, “the day I was going in, it got taken away from me because it got leaked to the press. It was devastating.”

Clark-Neal is openly gay and has been a part-time model since he was 16. It was during his early modelling career that he adopted the stage name “Rylan” as it was more unusual. He was in several Take That and Westlife tribute bands in Ibiza, and was also part of a Spanish boy band called 4bidden until January 2010.

In 2013 Clark-Neal began dating media personality and ex-police officer Dan Neal. On 18 September 2014 the couple announced their engagement and were married on 7 November 2015 in Essex.
