What happened to Rylan before his BBC breakdown?

In a statement at the time Rylan admitted to making several ‘mistakes’.

He said: “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. “
