Rylan has recently shared his candid reason for not wanting the This Morning job on a permanent basis.

This weekend it was reported Cat Deeley wanted Rylan to be her permanent co-host but it has been tipped she will star alongside Ben Shephard. During her presenting trial, Deeley had the joy of working alongside Rylan on This Morning and they had great fun together on screen.

In recent months Rylan has stepped in to help on This Morning while ITV continue their rota of hosts following Holly Willoughby's resignation. Fans have delighted over seeing Rylan reunite with Emma Willis recently as well as branding Rylan and Rochelle Humes an "iconic" duo last week.

And while Rylan has been a central part of the This Morning family for many years, he has already ruled out a return to the daytime TV show on a permanent basis. In recent weeks, he told Yahoo he would say "no" if they tried to persuade him to return full-time.

He explained to Yahoo: "I worked at This Morning for what, six years and then I left and I got used to sleeping in and now it's so nice to be able to just pop in for a week, see everyone, have a lovely time, give away some money and then go home and at the end of the day if I do anything wrong, ain't my show don’t care!"

With many friends in the showbiz worlds, it's no surprise that Rylan has loved starring alongside different celebrities on the ITV show. So much so, he doesn't have a favourite he would like to see on the sofa permanently.

"This Morning it's gone for a change over last year," he said. "I love everyone that's there. I hate to be Mr Diplomat... But I've been really lucky, I've hosted This Morning with pretty much everyone: Phil [Schofield], Holly [Willoughby], Ruth, Eamonn, Geri Halliwell.

"I think I presented a show with Lorraine. I get about on that show. I’ve had everyone!" Only this weekend, Rylan was out with his showbiz friend Willoughby.

In chatting about his friendships with the stars, Rylan also enthused over his co-star Josie Gibson's recent success. Gibson has been having her moment after starring on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here late last year.

Kind-hearted Rylan said: "I'm thrilled for Josie because for years I remember even when Ruth [Langsford] and Eamonn [Holmes] were there, we all loved Josie and Eamonn and Ruth were very vocal in getting Josie to do more while they were there and I'm thrilled she's having a moment now because I think she's great and it's been lovely working with her."

Rylan has had an incredibly busy schedule recently having filmed reality series Hot Mess Summer as well as preparing to film Naked Dating UK. Having been in showbiz for more than a decade, the presenter lifted the lid on his secrets to success.

"Just be nice to people," he said. "I made no secret of the fact I got ill a few years back and had to have a few months off. And, when I come back, all my jobs are waiting for me and that's because I always treated everyone the same. I don't care if you're my runner, the head of a channel. I always treat everyone the same."
