Rylan Clark-Neal has reportedly asked the BBC to remove his married name following reports he's going to divorce his husband Dan Neal.
The 32 year old, who recently shared a rare look at his sprawling garden at his home, was referred to by his first name on Strictly Come Dancing's spin-off show It Takes Two. Meanwhile his co-host Janette Manrara, 37, was called by her full name.
Now, it's been said the star wants a "fresh start" as a source said: "He thought it was best to have a fresh start and the easiest way to do that was to go back to just one name."
The insider went on to tell The Sun: "He didn’t want to make a big fuss – just to change it onscreen."
OK! Online has approached Rylan's representatives for further comment.
The star has also removed any mention of his last name from his social media accounts, including Instagram and Twitter.
Rylan and his Big Brother husband Dan got engaged in 2014, after first meeting on Big Brother's Big on the Side the year before.
The couple wed in November 2015 in a ceremony which was kept very much out the public eye.
In an attempt to move on from his marriage, it's been said Rylan has joined dating app Tinder. According to the same publication, his bio reads: "Tall normal bloke – 6’4” – am I actually on this thing?"

It comes after last week the TV personality attended the Attitude Awards with his former The X Factor cast mate Lucy Spraggan.
During the awards show, hosted at The Roundhouse in Camden, Rylan presented the Icon Award to pop group Steps.
Rylan appeared to reference his marriage split in the speech and praised Steps star Claire Richards for her support. He said: "On a personal level, one of the members of this band is like my big sister.
"For the past four months, probably for the toughest time in my life, she's been there for me, and without her, I probably wouldn't be giving this award out tonight."
Rylan also joked about joining dating app Grindr as he said in the speech: "Sorry guys I was a little bit distracted, I was trying to download Grindr. It's been 10 minutes.
"What a year, I'm genuinely thrilled to be here."
