Before the party, Rylan made an entrance with a pal, who looked glamorous in a purple dress.  

While at the event, the star posed with a number of his famous friends, including the celebrity stylist who wore a leather jacket and stylish shirt. 

The outing comes after Rylan revealed he ‘didn’t know if he could continue to live’ following the breakdown of his marriage to husband Dan Neal last year, which saw him take a highly-publicised step away from the spotlight.

He shocked his fans when he temporarily gave up his BBC Radio 2 hosting duties, but has now confessed he was hospitalised for ‘safety reasons’ after refusing food.

Dropping to just nine stone, he admitted he ‘was a danger to himself’ and ‘didn’t think he would get better’ when things were at their worst, nor that he would ‘be here today’.

At a time where drones were flying over his house and concern from his adoring supporters was mounting, Rylan revealed he couldn’t have felt lonelier.

He told The Observer: ‘It’s really strange talking about this, because I’ve not even spoken about it to my friends. I just never thought I could get that ill.’

‘I went down to just over 9st and I’m 6ft 4in. It got bad. Like, very bad. And I didn’t think it would get better. I needed help.’

The former X Factor contestant confessed he ‘did not know himself at certain points’ and was ‘having thoughts and doing things that made him f****d up’.

He continued: ‘I didn’t think I’d be here. I didn’t think I could continue [to work or to live]. I didn’t think I’d actually come back. I was very… gone.’

Rylan admitted in a recent interview with The Sun that he became ‘dangerously thin’ and ‘mentally unwell’ following his split from husband Dan Neal last year. 

The television presenter and former policeman Dan announced their split in June last year after six years together, with Rylan saying his weight dropped to 9st 13lb because he ‘didn’t deal with what happened’.

And, while Rylan admits life was ‘s**t’ after the break-up, he has since bounced back, concentrating on his health and diet while buffing up in the gym, putting on four stone.

He said: ‘I got ill and I lost weight, I went down to under ten stone — and I’m six feet four inches, so that’s not good.

‘The honest truth is that it’s been s**t.’

One-time Celebrity Big Brother winner Rylan took a break from his work commitments over the summer in a bid to look after himself, hailing his mother Linda as a ‘lifesaver’ in that time.

The media personality said his family had been ‘majorly worried’ about him after he ‘disappeared’ for four months this year, taking a break from public life and staying quiet on social media.

‘One of my biggest regrets of this year was putting my mum through me not being well,’ he said. ‘I needed to get back to me.’

Oh no! Dropping to just nine stone, he admitted he 'was a danger to himself' and 'didn't think he would get better' when things were at their worst, nor that he would 'be here today' (pictured in November 2021)

Rylan was back on television screens in September to present Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two.

He enlisted the help of fitness guru Scott Harrison in a bid to feel more confident about himself after splitting from Dan.

‘Getting fit and looking after my body has saved me. Fitness has given me a goal,’ said Rylan.

The screen star cut down on alcohol and had between seven and nine small meals a day, as well as snacks.

And he insists the changes have positively influenced his mental health in addition to the physical benefits.

He said: ‘I’ve decided to look after myself for a change instead of worrying about everybody else.

‘Last year I properly lost myself. I wanted to get me back and make a better version.’

Rylan and his ex Dan met when Dan was a housemate on series 14 of Big Brother in 2013, with Rylan hosting spin-off show Big Brother’s Bit On The Side.

The former couple wed in November 2015 after Dan asked Rylan to marry him in Paris.
