We caught up with Rylan Clark just before his recent 33rd birthday celebrations to talk getting drunk with his co-stars, his hopes for the future after a challenging time and why this year’s Strictly Come Dancing is too close to call.
The TV presenter also opened up about why the BBC One dancing show is "keeping him going" and teased an exciting project for 2022…
Hi, Rylan! You’re very busy at the moment. What are you excited to be working on?
Strictly Come Dancing is amazing. I am so excited to be working on it. Filming is busy, to say the least, but I honestly can’t believe the level of the talent we’ve got this year. It is crazy.
Strictly is keeping me going and I’m working on quite a few other things too. I’ve got a project coming up in January, which is completely mine. It’s exciting, nerve-racking and time-consuming. I’m buzzing about it but it’s top-secret.
We’re loving you on It Takes Two. What are your predictions for this series?
Without being Mr Diplomatic, this year’s Strictly is anyone’s game. Every week, a different person is at the top and bottom of the leaderboard.
You just don’t know what’s going to happen week by week. That’s what makes Strictly so much fun.
Do you have any post-pandemic night out plans?
I’ve been on one big post-pandemic night out [the Attitude Awards], which Google reminds me about daily. That was more raucous than any club I’ve been to.
You’re also working with i Heart Wines. What’s your favourite type of night out?
I’m a night in kind of guy, but I do need to start going out as I’m becoming a bit of a hermit. My favourite night out is
good food, good wine, good company and good vibes.
I’ve had enough bad vibes – I think it’s time for some good ones. My go-to wine of choice is the i Heart Merlot from i Heart Wines
It’s very classy and perfect for those who have veneers – you never get red wine teeth!

Of all your co-stars, who would you most like to get drunk with?
I’ll tell you who’s great on a night out, Ruth Langsford. She is an absolute goer. We just sit there, we talk, we slag people off. It’s a little bit like therapy.
