Rylan Clark-Neal claims Hillary Clinton wanted him to be her personal aide – but he turned her down – The Sun

RYLAN Clark-Neal has claimed that Hillary Clinton once offered him a job, but he turned her down.

Rylan, 31, dropped the bombshell during a chat with comic Katherine Ryan on his BBC Radio 2 programme as he spilled all the beans.

Explaining the offer was made during his time working on ITV show This Morning, the former X Factor contestant said: "You know Hillary Clinton actually offered me a job once… As in, like, genuinely."

He continued: "It was was when I worked on This Morning, we used to do this thing called The Hub, which is where I was just off the side of the set with a big screen doing viewer comments and I called her Hills babe, and then everyone went mad because they were like, 'This could be the next president'.

"Anyway, we had a lovely chat and she was like, 'I'd love you to be my personal aide'. So if it all goes wrong, I swear!"

Hillary, 72, served as First Lady of the United States from 1993 to 2001, as a United States senator from New York from 2001 to 2009, and as the 67th United States secretary of state from 2009 until 2013.

She became the first woman to be nominated for president of the United States by a major political party when she won the Democratic Party nomination in 2016.

She was also the first woman to win the popular vote in an American presidential election, which she lost to Donald Trump.

Rylan said he would take up the opportunity if he swore on daytime TV and lost all of his lucrative presenting gigs.

The former Big Brother star said: "I didn't, but I did say to her – and I won't say the exact words I said to her because it's not BBC Radio 2 friendly – I said, 'Hillary, if I say a certain swear word on daytime TV and lose all my jobs, I'll give you a ring'."

However, it doesn't look like Rylan will be desperate for work any time soon.

Since leaving This Morning in 2017, Rylan has occasionally returned as a stand-in presenter and once hosted the show with his husband Dan.

As well as hosting Ready Steady Cook, Strictly spin-off It Takes Two and occasionally sitting in on Zoe Ball’s Radio 2 breakfast show, last month it was revealed Rylan has filmed a pilot for a primetime series called The Squeeze.

The show will see the reality favourite-turned-presenter put contestants through their paces with a mixture of tough questions and physical challenges.

Speaking at the Arias radio awards in London in March, Rylan said: "I’ve just flown back from Scotland after filming it and it went really, really well. It’s very early days."

A telly source added to The Sun: "Beeb bosses trialled the show a few years ago but they didn’t find the right personality to carry it.

"Now they know larger-than-life Rylan is perfect. Producers think he’s just the guy for the show."
