Last week, Rylan broke his silence on the split, saying he made a 'number of mistakes' that led to the 'breakdown' of their marriage. 

In a statement, he said: 'Following reports about Dan and I spending time apart, I feel I have to speak out - as the way it is being reported is unfair. 

'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.'

Rylan added he is trying to take each day at a time and thanked his fans for their support and respecting the couple's privacy.

Rylan recently sparked concern among fans following his mystery seven-week absence from his Radio 2 show as well as being silent on social media.

Insiders have now divulged details of the demise of their relationship, citing Rylan's well-publicised desire to have children and Dan's longing for a TV career as part of the reason for the split, saying: 'They just couldn't resolve their differences'. 

The news comes after BBC officials voiced hopes for Rylan's imminent return, telling MailOnline: 'Rylan is taking a few week's break and we look forward to him returning to Radio 2 in due course.'

Friends of Rylan and Dan, who has a 21-year-old son Cameron, have stated they are 'unsurprised' by news of the split due to their different aims in life. 

Sources told MailOnline on Monday: 'Rylan loved being a step-dad and was wonderful but it just couldn't fill the gap he felt for wanting his own children.'   

Rylan has made no secret of his broodiness, saying in 2019: 'I have a 19-year-old stepson already - Cameron - and he's amazing. I want to be a dad, I'd love it to happen, it's when and how.' 

Insiders also revealed that Dan's desire for fame was a large part of their relationship and he has even have multiple showreels made in a bid to win success.

The source went on: 'Dan really wants a TV career. He looks at Rylan being so effortless. He's had showreels made and would love to be a TV star'.  

After hosting This Morning together in 2017 as stand-ins for the lead presenters, Dan's TV career failed to take off further while Rylan remained firmly in the spotlight. 

Later that year, Rylan spoke about their marriage to BUILD series LDN, where he explained that their relationship was often filled with arguments. 

He said: 'We recently did something together and it was about being the perfect match and they had to keep stopping and say 'you have to make out you like each other' because that is me and Dan and I think that's real...

'I hate when you see all these people on TV and they're like 'I love my husband, he's so amazing, he's my soul mate, he's my best friend', it's like shut up, are you joking?...

'Mine does my head in! I wake up next to it and go to sleep next to it, that's enough! Obviously we love each other but we row all the time, I think that's normal?...

'With me and Dan we're both on a level, we both get it, things that annoy him, annoy me and then I'll get annoyed and he'll ask me why I'm annoyed and that's why we row because we both do the same things to wind each other up...

'Sometimes that's a recipe for disaster but that's why we get on and our families get on so well. It is like one family now.'

While insiders spoke of Dan's desire for fame, at the time Rylan said about their work together, saying: 'We recently did something together...

Decision: According to The Sun , Rylan decided to step back from work amid the couple's decision to separate and he will be back on the airwaves soon

'Dan and I, we don't work together. We're not that sort of couple that do the magazines and stuff like that, good for you if that's what you want to do but I hate it. I can't stand so when me and Dan did This Morning...

'The only reason we did that is because it was such a big deal, we were the first gay couple to do it, it meant something and we're done it a couple of times, we might do it again, we might not but it's not top of our list because
