Rylan Clark-Neal and his mother Linda were the standouts of Celebrity Gogglebox, with many viewers eager to see them pair up on other TV projects.

Turns out that TV bosses do too, but the duo have had to turn down multiple offers because Linda has Crohn's disease, which really limits what she can do. When Rylan was on The X Factor, she was only able to attend one live show.

Speaking to the Daily Star, the host said: "We've been offered hundreds of things. We got asked to do a travel show and the chance to go here and go there. It would be hilarious, but she's just not well enough to do it.

"Gogglebox is enough for us. She feels comfortable doing that show ­because we're just sat in my kitchen.

"It's the only thing we can do ­together. We might do it again. If it comes around again, we'd definitely think about it."

Rylan went on to credit his mum for making him the person he is, adding: "People understand why I am who I am when they listen to my mum for five minutes.

"I'll get her on when I'm doing Radio 2 and people will hear her eating a toastie while she's on the phone, and suddenly everything makes sense."

Rylan has recently presented reboots of Supermarket Sweep and Ready Steady Cook, which premiered earlier this month on the BBC.
