Rylan Clark 'banned from Tinder' after app thought he was a 'catfish'

Rylan Clark has revealed that his Tinder account has been banned after the dating app thought he was a ‘catfish’.

The TV presenter shared a screenshot of the Tinder app removing his profile.

Joking on his Instagram Stories, he said “Catfish” along with a laughing face emoji over the notification telling him his page violated their Terms of Use.

Rylan’s short-lived dating app experience comes after his marriage to police officer Dan Neal broke down after 6 years.

According to The Mirror, the star joined the app recently, with his bio reading: “Tall normal bloke – 6’4″ – am I actually on this thing?”

At the Attitude Awards earlier this month, Rylan made a joke about joining Grindr when he arrived on stage a little late.

“Sorry, I was a little bit distracted. I was trying to download Grindr. It’s been 10 years! What a year,” the star quipped.

He also appeared to reference his marriage split in the speech and praised Steps star, Claire Richards, for her support.

He said: “On a personal level, one of the members of this band is like my big sister.

“For the past four months, probably for the toughest time in my life, she’s been there for me, and without her, I probably wouldn’t be giving this award out tonight.”

After splitting from his husband Dan, the 32-year-old dropped his usually hyphenated surname from the credits on BBC2’s It Takes Two.

Rylan, whose real name is Ross Richard Clark, hyphenated his surname to Clark-Neal when he married former policeman Dan in 2015.

But after six years of marriage, Rylan announced the couple had broken up. In June, he released a statement saying:

“I have made a number of mistakes which I deeply regret and have inevitably led to the breakdown of our marriage. I have taken time away from work as I am not in a good place at the moment and am seeking help.”

He then took a few months off work and didn’t post on any of his social media.

After his return, Rylan had to respond to claims that the BBC offered him a year off work after he had a ‘breakdown’.

The BBC Radio 2 presenter reportedly worried bosses after he started crying on air.

It was claimed by The Sun that Rylan’s coworkers played music to give him a moment to compose himself.

In response to the claims, the presenter took to his Instagram Stories to assure fans that he’s doing okay.

“Couple of news stories today. Be assured, I’m good. I wasn’t, but I am now x,” he wrote against a black background.
