Ready, Steady, Cook's Rylan admits 'I don't know where the f*** I am' during hectic filming with just 30 mins off a day

READY, Steady, Cook's Rylan Clark-Neal admitted that he didn't know "where the f**k he was" during filming for the new series.

The X Factor star, 32, took over presenting the popular daytime TV cooking game show from Ainsley Harriott last year.

And with the second series due to hit our screens very soon, Rylan lifted the lid on what viewers can expect to see early next month.

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, show bosses have had to switch things up a little – meaning that Rylan isn't allowed to taste any of the food and there's is no live audience anymore.

And all of these changes made filming super hectic, especially considering he only got 30 minute breaks per day.

The telly favourite told The Sun's TV Mag: "I’m in four shows a day, I don’t know where the f**k I am.

"I’ve just been pushed into cupboards and then pulled out… We have good food every day. We have some very good chefs, we’ve got brilliant food, I’m just so annoyed I can’t taste it no more.

"I’m not allowed to taste it – we’re Covid-secure so we maintain social distancing.

"The chefs are allowed to handle the food but it’s only the contestant that’s allowed to eat their own food. I’m very jealous."

Although Rylan admitted that he does miss having the audience with him, it has allowed him to show his cheekier side off with the rest of the contestants.

He added: "So we’ve brought the remaining chefs that aren’t cooking onto set and they’re sat at a chef’s table and watching everything that’s going on and actually it’s the three remaining chefs that end up voting for their favourite dish and that decides the winner.

"So it’s lovely for me because we’ve got all of our chefs involved in every single show now.

"It gives me a bit more time to have a laugh with them because when they’re not actually cooking, they’re more at ease to have a bit of banter."

Back in 2019 it was revealed that the BBC were rebooting the legendary cooking show without host Ainsley Harriott – who hosted more than 1,000 episodes from 2001 to 2010.

Before Ainsley, Fern Britton hosted the show from 1994 to 1999.

After shooting to fame in on the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012, Rylan has become a huge household name in the showbiz world, with various show's wanting a piece of him.

A year after finishing fifth in the ITV singing competition, he went on to win Celebrity Big Brother 11, which helped him bag his presenting gig on Big Brother's Bit on the Side.

He's also managed to present on shows such as This Morning, The Xtra Factor and Supermarket Sweep.
