Rylan Clark-Neal has quit Twitter after being slammed for replacing 'The Chase' with his new show 'Babushka', although the game show was always planned to have a one-month break
Rylan Clark-Neal has quit Twitter.
The 28-year-old television presenter has decided to leave the social media site because he has been bombarded with hurtful messages from fellow users after it became known this his new game show 'Babushka' would air in the time slot usually filled by 'The Chase' while the latter programme takes a one-month break.
The 'This Morning' celebs reporter said: "Getting a bit ridiculous now. Just doing my job. Enjoy the show. Coming off here for a while @Babushka starts Monday (sic)."
And it looks like he's stuck to his word as when you try to search for the dark-haired former 'The X Factor' competitor - who is married to Dan Neal - it redirects people to a generic page, which reads: "Sorry, that page doesn't exist."
Fans of the ITV British series, which is helmed by Bradley Walsh, believe Rylan is replacing the popular game show with his new programme, but he's adamant his programme is only being screened at the time because of a scheduling reshuffle.
Rylan recently admitted his show, which has been commissioned for 20 episodes and will use traditional Russian dolls - also known as matryoshka dolls, wooden toys that contain smaller dolls inside - to determine the prizes, is going to be the new 'Deal or No Deal'.
Speaking previously about the project, he said: "All I'd compare it to in a similar sense is 'Deal or No Deal', because it's extremely simple. All you have to do is find the money and hold onto it.
"And it's the same as 'Deal or No Deal' because if I was trying to explain to you the rules of 'Deal or No Deal', it sounds really complicated. 'Someone's ringing you every five minutes, there's 22 boxes ...' But when you watch it you completely understand what's going on. It's exactly the same with 'Babushka'. It's like a 'Deal or No Deal' for the modern times, I think."
