Surprising backstage secret of This Morning revealed

And Rylan's not happy about it!

| Updated:

Have you ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of This Morning? Beyond the occasional technical hitches and crew members laughing at Phil and Holly’s gaffes, that is.

Well, wonder no more! Celebrity host Rylan Clark-Neal has revealed some of the goings-on at Team This Morning, and shed some light on the subject for us.

And it’s safe to say he’s not exactly delighted about some of the things he’s brought up, either!

First, he explained how hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are the only stars with their very own dressing rooms – that also contain their own private toilets.

29-year-old Rylan even suggested the pair use their dressing rooms to hide from “peasants” like himself, Alison Hammond and Gino D’Acampo!

Of course, it was all said in jest… mostly.

Rylan spoke to The Sun, saying: “A little trade secret – we don’t all have dressing rooms at This Morning. Unless you’re hosting the show you don’t have a dressing room.

“So Holly and Phil have got a dressing room, then on a Friday Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes have them and the rest of us just fend for themselves.”

“They don’t mix with us peasants. Even when I’m hosting I end up going to sit in the green room, because it’s like my little home.”

Rylan also hilariously talked about how he and Alison Hammond pinch things from the set when they think they can get away with it!

He said: “I rob at work, but I’m quite an honest robber. If there’s a gadget or a candle I’m like, ‘I’m taking this, bye’ and I’ll just walk out and no one will stop me.”

Talking of technical hitches, This Morning was beset by one just today.

Fans were expecting to see the usual title sequence of Holly and Phil walking in to work – updated with December’s Christmas twist.

Instead, they were shown a bemused looking pair of presenters, as the credit sequence hadn’t loaded, and the live feed started in the studio straight away!

Fortunately, Phil and Holly, ever the professionals, sprung into action straight away – if in between laughter.

“We’ve lost the titles!” Phil exclaimed.

“Is this my chance to sing?” Holly questioned while Phil quipped: “Good job we were ready then and not picking our noses!”

Never mind guys, tomorrow’s another day – just keep an eye on Rylan!
