Rylan Clark caught demanding ‘gimme the gear’ on video during night out

Rylan Clark has reportedly been caught demanding ‘gimme the gear’ in shock footage during a night out this month.

In a video obtained by The Sunday Mirror, the presenter, 33, is allegedly seen asking for ‘gear’ (a slang term for drugs) while being filmed on a mobile phone by his companion outside a London bar – though he is not specifically heard asking for an illegal substance.

Upon spotting he was being filmed, Rylan promptly remarked: ‘Delete that now or I will f*****g kill you!’, though the star was smiling at the time, indicating he was joking.

There is no suggestion Rylan obtained or took drugs.

It comes weeks after Rylan admitted he was a ‘danger to himself’ following the breakdown of his marriage to husband Dan Neal last year, which saw him take a highly-publicised step away from the spotlight.

A source told publication: ‘Rylan was pretty animated and it was clear he wanted to party.

‘He was in the smoking area but he said he wanted to leave and have a wild night out. He wanted to get away from his team.

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Rylan for comment.

In the 22-second video, the star reported to be seen saying: ‘Give me the gear, give me the f*****g gear and we’ll go.’

After realising he was on camera, a laughing Rylan pointed at the phone before stating: ‘No, no, no, delete that now, delete that now, or I’ll f*****g kill you.’

As they continue their exchange down the street, the former Big Brother star, dressed in a black shirt, is heard repeating: ‘No, I’ll f*****g kill you.’

While his giggling companion added: ‘Anyway. You just said give me the gear. I’m not gonna…’

The Sunday Mirror reports Rylan then shook his head before reiterating: ‘I’ll f*****g kill you’, with the other man assuring: ‘Come on, you’re with me.’

It Takes Two host Rylan is then heard repeating: ‘No, I’ll f*****g kill you, you know I will.’

Just days previously, Rylan insisted to Davina McCall on his Ry-union podcast he was ‘never in the place’ where he needed to take drugs.

During a frank chat, he told her: ‘I’ve never been in that place where I feel that I need to do something like that.

‘I was in a boyband in Ibiza, so you can imagine the world that I was in living out there, [but] I never felt the need to do that. I’m a control freak.

‘The thought of not being in control of something, even when I’ve had a drink. Lately I’ve gone out a few times and drunk more than I usually would, I’m quite honest about it.’

Earlier this month, the TV personality revealed he ‘didn’t know if he could continue to live’ following the end of marriage to husband Dan, which saw him step back from the limelight.

Rylan 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 reusing 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’.

At a time where drones were flying over his house and concern from his adoring supporters was mounting, Rylan revealed he couldn’t have felt lonelier.

He told 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.’

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 stones.

He told The Sun: ‘I got ill and I lost weight, I went down to under ten stone — and I’m six feet four inches, so that’s not good.

‘The honest truth is that it’s been s**t.’

The media personality said his family had been ‘majorly worried’ about him after he ‘disappeared’ for four months this year, taking a break from public life and staying quiet on social media.

‘One of my biggest regrets of this year was putting my mum through me not being well,’ he said. ‘I needed to get back to me.’

Rylan was back on television screens in September to present Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two.

He enlisted the help of fitness guru Scott Harrison in a bid to feel more confident about himself after splitting from Dan.
