Rylan Clark has responded to ITV after he made a fresh demand for a show to return. Not only does he work in TV - and radio - but the 35-year-old is also a fan of plenty of shows just like the rest of us and can often be found sharing his thoughts on social media.

In his latest post on X, formerly known as Twitter, BBC Radio 2 star Rylan shared his thoughts on wanting a gameshow to return to screens with fans suggesting he could be the new host after previously being behind the reboot of Supermarket Sweep on ITV.

"Gonna say it again #BringBackGoldenballs," wrote on X. One of Rylan's followers, @Khalidaubin97, was quick to respond, writing: "@ITV come on, you’ve heard it from the king of tv."

ITV then got involved and replied: "It’s not happening anytime soon we’re sorry to say Khalid," but Rylan said back: "I’ll die on this hill." But for ITV's social media team, there was not much else they could say, replying: "We know Rylan we know, we’re just a lowly social media manager!"

But many people did agree with Rylan. @ollieollieGA said: "YES PLEASE." @WebkinsWorld wrote: "Yes we need it back! Best game show ever!!!" @wright_jacqui posted: "Omg yes I loved that show." @hollyoak_emily added: "Yes please I miss this show."

It comes Rylan was praised for his latest work as he revealed he'll be supporting the Samaritans at this year's London Marathon. "I’m really proud to be supporting #TeamSamaritans, and be a cheerleader for this year’s @londonmarathon runners who are raising money for this incredible charity alongside the beautiful @damekellyholmes," he shared on social media.

Alongside pictures of himself and Olympian and Loose Women star Dame Kelly, the TV and radio favourite added: "The fact that @samaritanscharity is able to respond to calls for help and be there for absolutely anyone who is struggling, to listen to them without judgement and offer their support at any time of day, every day of the year is amazing. Good luck to all the runners - I’ll be cheering from the sidelines."

Samaritans social media team was quick to respond, writing: "We're SO grateful for your support, Rylan! Welcome to #TeamSamaritans." And Rylan's fans and followers were keen to support his efforts.
