Rylan Clark-Neal celebrates 33rd birthday with lavish bash at home

Rylan Clark looked in great spirits as he rang in his 33rd birthday with an epic party surrounded by family and friends on Saturday evening.

Despite seeing a challenging year that saw the breakdown of his marriage to Dan Neal, the presenter was clearly in the mood to celebrate as he documented the fun-filled festivities on his Instagram platform.

Rylan, who recently joined the dating app Tinder, was joined by the likes of Lizzie Cundy as he indulged in a spot of karaoke at his home.

Giving a glimpse of the night to his followers, Rylan also shared a snap of a delicious grazing board that his guests feasted on.

The former X Factor star looked utterly dashing for the occasion in a white turtleneck top that he teamed with a pair of skinny black jeans.

Holding on to a glass of champagne, Rylan couldn't have looked happier as he posed alongside his staircase that was intertwined with layers of balloons.

Rylan, whose actual birthday is on Monday, captioned the post: "33 in 48…. Let's go."

The television personality's birthday celebrations come after he addressed reports he was urged to take a year off work due to a "breakdown" following his split from Dan.

He recently shared a short statement that read: "Couple of news stories today. Be assured, I'm good."

He added: "I wasn't, but I am Now x".

It comes after claims the BBC urged Rylan to "take a year off work" after suffering from a breakdown.

A source told The Sun: "When he returned to work, everyone supported him, but when he broke down, people were concerned he'd come back too fast."

The insider added: "One of the BBC's top brass was at the meeting. They even suggested he take a year's break to focus on himself.

"Rylan's one of the BBC's favourite stars. Ultimately, they want Rylan to feel supported and happy."

The BBC told OK!: "Following some time away from his Radio 2 show, we're delighted to have Rylan back on air."

Rylan recently took time away from his BBC Radio 2 show earlier this year. It was later reported that he and husband Dan had split.

He and Dan tied the knot in 2015, and Dan is dad to a 20 year old son called Cameron. The couple met when Dan was a contestant on Big Brother in 2013.
