‘It was obviously quite a crowded restaurant but luckily most people didn’t recognise Rylan. He’s been really keen to keep his dating life on the down low since his split.

‘He’s really been playing it all down, but the pictures of them kissing speak for themselves now.’

MailOnline has contacted a representative of Rylan Clark and Declan Doyle for comment. 

Declan – who previously dated Geordie Shore star Nathan Henry – appeared on the most recent series of Ex On The Beach.

Nathan and Declan split in May 2022 after realising ‘they were no longer compatible’ during a getaway in Mexico.

Rylan recently opened up about trying to date again following his split from ex-husband Dan Neal.

He told The Sun: ‘Not only do you have to start again, which is an effort as it is, add to that you are Rylan. It’s a little bit weird.

‘You could just go for dinner with a mate and next thing you know someone has took a photo and the next thing you know they are the mystery man.’

The TV presenter continued: ‘It’s all still pretty new to me, I am s*** at things like this. I am not confident when it comes down to that side of things, so I am just trying to take baby steps.’

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

The TV personality 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’.

He tole 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.’

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.

Rylan and his ex Dan met when he 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.
