Rylan Clark takes cryptic swipe at former This Morning co-star Phillip Schofield with telltale comment

RYLAN Clark makes a thinly veiled dig at Phillip Schofield about his approach to fame.

The presenter, who was thrust into the spotlight after appearing on the X Factor in 2012, has kept tight-lipped about Phillip’s departure from ITV.

Rylan Clark said he has a rule when it comes to working with other presenters

The TV veteran stepped down from his 20-year position on This Morning’s sofa after it was revealed that he’d had an affair with a “much younger” staff member.

Speaking to The Telegraph, Rylan said he has one rule when it comes to working in showbiz: “The only time I get involved with something like that is when my name is involved.”


His motto is simple: “Work hard, be decent to everybody and be nice to everyone on the way up, because everyone has a fall.”

Shortly after the news about Phillip broke, which he’d previously denied, a large number of This Morning staff raised claims of “toxic working cultures”

Phillip said that he was “deeply sorry” for the affair, which he said was “unwise but not illegal”.

The 61-year-old’s replacement hasn’t been chosen yet, with the MailOnline revealing that a decision wouldn’t be made this year.


Instead, Holly Willoughby has been joined by a roster of presenters including Alison Hammond, Josie Gibson, Dermot O’Leary and Craig O’Doyle.

Fans suspected that Rylan would be the new permanent fixture after he posted a cryptic post just minutes after the news that Phillip was leaving the show.

He shared a selfie of him beaming and making a peace sign with his fingers.

Rylan was forced to pull out of his Radio2 show after his mum Linda suffered a fall while the pair were in Marbella earlier this week.


He then told fans she needed surgery following the mishap and has now given a positive update on progress.

In his latest Instagram post, Rylan bore good news as he shared some photos of his mum being wheeled onto a private jet via stretcher.

The former X Factor finalist wrote in his caption, “She might have broke an arm and a leg but she’s cost me an arm and a leg!

“LINDAS COMING HOME!! Massive thank you to the amazing team and surgeons at @helicopterossanitarios. Thanks for looking after my mum x.”


He added in a comment, “And yes she’s still getting her driveway x.”

Earlier in the week, he described Celebrity Gogglebox star Linda as “not in the best of health” and said her other conditions had complicated the matter.

Sharing a picture of his mum’s hand on Instagram, he wrote: “Mum is out of surgery. All went well. Asked me if she can still have a new driveway…. She’s deffo come round. Thanks for all your lovely messages x.”
