ylan Clark-Neal is taking a break from "This Morning" next year.

The 29-year-old presenter - who usually dishes out the showbiz gossip on the programme throughout the week - has announced that he's planning to take a "break" from the brunch time show at the beginning of 2018 - but he's adamant he'll be back.

Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield on today's episode, he said: "I've not really said anything but after Christmas, next Friday, I'm going to be going away for a little bit. It's definitely not goodbye but I'm going to be taking a little bit of a break new year. But I just want to say thank you because it's been lovely and I will be back."

Rylan didn't go into detail about why he was leaving but Holly, 36, was clearly upset to see him leave and compared it to a mother waving goodbye to her child at an aiport.

She said: "I feel like you're our child who is going off travelling to explore new things."
