Its cancellation was confirmed by a spokesperson for the broadcaster, who shared (via The Sun): "We sometimes have to make difficult decisions to grow new shows and after two brilliant series of Ready Steady Cook, we're making space in the schedule for some exciting new titles that we're sure viewers will enjoy.

"We are hugely grateful to Rylan and our team of chefs for making the return of the series so special."

Following an extended work hiatus, Rylan rejoined the BBC Radio 2 crew earlier this month, so it's not all doom and gloom.

"I have some really wonderful news to share with you, Radio 2 listeners," Zoe Ball originally teased live on air. "Our dear friend Rylan is gonna be back to his show on BBC Radio 2 on Saturday. I know we've all missed him so much, so many of you wonderful listeners have reached out and sent him so much love.

"Well he's gonna be back to his show. Oh I've missed you Rylan. 3pm to 6pm on Saturday."

The former X Factor singer announced his separation from husband Dan Neal back in July.

"I have made a number of mistakes which I deeply regret and have inevitably led to the breakdown of our marriage. I have taken time away from work as I am not in a good place at the moment and am seeking help," read an Instagram post.

"I am trying to take each day at a time and would like to say thank you to everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time."
