Rylan Clark has admitted he attempted suicide after his husband packed his bags after the TV presenter told him he had cheated.
The TV host, 33, reveals in his new book that he reached a low point in his life and spent weeks in a mental health unit, after feeling the need to tell his partner he had fling "years ago", prompting his lover to leave him.
He writes: "And for the first time in thirty two years I felt I couldn't carry on no more. What's the point I thought. I'd lost what I thought was everything, the one thing I always wanted. A man I loved. A family of my own. And now it was gone. And so I tried to end it."

Rylan was reportedly admitted to a mental health hospital and was able to get the help he needed.
Speaking at an event in London on Wednesday (September 21), the former X Factor star said it was no secret that his marriage collapsed last year.
He explained: "And I disappeared for five or six months and people knew when I didn't turn up for work that something was wrong because I am always on f*****g telly, you know what I mean?"
He added: "For someone looking from the outside in I look as if I have the perfect life. You know I have got a family, I am lucky to have money in the bank, I have got a regular job but things are not always as they seem. In my head it was really difficult."
Rylan advised people in a similar situation to seek help, but that in reality he was the only one able to pull himself out of the mire.

Referencing how bad things got he told the audience: "I went back to physically being in that situation and no-one can help you."
He added: "I was admitted to a mental health unit which is f****d up for me to sit here and say now because I don't know that person," adding: "I just never thought that would happen to me."
