Rylan Clark-Neal apologises for a comment he made on ITV's This Morning


Rylan Clark-Neal has clarified a comment he made on This Morning on Wednesday which was uttered during a discussion on sexual consent.

In a series of tweets, the Big Brother's Bit On The Side presenter apologised for any unintentional offence.

On ITV's popular morning show, the topic in question was whether sexual consent classes should be compulsory. This follows the University of York's decision to introduce compulsory sexual consent classes for male students.

Rylan, who was sitting in for regular host Phillip Schofield, asked guest Martin Daubney: "Should there be a compulsory alcohol class that talks about how much you drink, then? Because this is very much a two-way street."

The observation was not received well on social media and the 27-year-old took the decision to explain his position, saying that the comment was taken "out of context" and "misinterpreted".

Rylan retweeted a comment on the subject from a supporter who said she had understood what he had meant.

The Press Association contacted ITV for a comment.
