The Celebrity Big Brother and X Factor star, 32, solidified her status as a favorite on television with regular This Morning appearances, but has not graced the couch for two years now.
And opening up about his decision to take a step back, Rylan says the gig made him feel too comfortable in his career.
“I had a great time there and learned a lot about working live and ultimately hosting the show,” he says.
“I took a step back and I think it was the right decision for me to come out of this bubble of not really pushing myself.
“I loved This Morning, but now it’s nice to sit and watch it from home. ”
Rylan added to The Sun: “And I like lay in too much. I can’t handle early departures. ”
And believing Rylan adored Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary, Rylan admitted that he had been “gutted” to see “TV mom and dad” Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford leave their Friday slot.
ITV announced last year that Alison and Dermot would replace Eamonn and Ruth, who had hosted the Friday show for 14 years.
But despite the upheaval, Rylan is still tuned in on Friday mornings to watch Alison and Dermot “Diamonds.”
Rylan rose to fame for The X Factor, before entering the Big Brother house.
And since leaving This Morning, he’s landed an impressive series of concerts, including Best of Big Brother’s show last year and Strictly sister It Takes Two on the BBC.

Rylan’s first flirtation with fame came at just 18, when his stint at Big Brother was canceled before it even started.
What followed was an appearance in a Sky Living model series, in which he reached the final, before in 2012 surprising The X Factor judges with his voice.
A year later and with a poetic stroke of justice, he landed a spot in the Celebrity Big Brother house – and won it.
“I got £ 100,000 to be in Big Brother,” he said, “So for me, I won the lottery.
