The BBC are said to have suggested It Takes Two presenter Rylan take a year off work after he appeared to breakdown on his Radio 2 show last month.
The 32 year old, who is dealing with the break up of his marriage, is said to have started crying off air sending bosses into crisis mode.
Rylan's colleagues apparently had to cue the next track on his Saturday show giving the star time to compose himself, reports The Sun.
A source told the publication: “Rylan’s one of the BBC’s favourite stars.
"When he returned to work everyone supported him but when he broke down people were concerned he’d come back too fast.
“One of the BBC’s top brass was at the meeting. They even suggested he take a year’s break to focus on himself."
The Mirror has contacted the BBC and Rylan's reps for comment.
The much-loved presenter made a welcome return to his hosting duties last month following a hiatus after the breakdown of his marriage to Dan Neal.
In June, the presenter confirmed he and Dan were separating after six years of marriage, and now the former X Factor star has ruled out a reconciliation as he has dropped his husband’s surname.
Rylan reportedly asked BBC bosses if he could be known as Rylan on the credits of the BBC Two spin-off show, which he hosts alongside former Strictly pro Janette Manrara.
Rylan and Dan began dating in 2013, when the police officer appeared on Big Brother, and Rylan was presenting the spin-off show, Big Brother’s Bit on the Side.
They got engaged during a trip to Paris in 2014, and got married one year later, in a star-studded ceremony that featured Eamonn Holmes, Ruth Langsford, Katie Price, and Emma Willis on the guest list.
However in June, Rylan confirmed that speculation about the couple had split was true and blamed himself over their break-up in a heartfelt statement.
He told The Sun in a statement: "Following reports about Dan and I spending time apart, I feel I have to speak out - as the way it is being reported is unfair.
“I have made a number of mistakes which I deeply regret and have inevitably led to the breakdown of our marriage.”
He continued to say that he was trying to "seek help" as he was struggling with some personal issues and was "not in a good place at the moment".
However fans were delighted when Rylan decided to go back to his Radio 2 show last month and he thanked them for their kindness and patience.
The TV and radio presenter said he was focusing on his mental health and was grateful to be returning to the 'jobs he loves.'Read More Read More
