Viewers of Celebrity Gogglebox were amazed after discovering the real name of Rylan Clark-Neal, thanks to her mother.
Rylan appeared on the popular Channel 4 show with his mom Linda on Friday (July 3).
Mother and son were settling down for one night in front of the television when Linda made the surprise revelation.
Earlier in the show, his son from the TV star explained that he would enjoy some ice cream sandwiches as an evening snack.
“I bet you have one,” joked Rylan.
“No, I won’t,” he replied. “Ross, you want to stop it, I don’t want one.”
Fans were shocked, with many questions as to why they had only just discovered the Supermarket Sweep and the Ready Steady Cook host was named Ross.
A surprised fan tweeted: “As I just realized that @Rylan is really called Ross.
Another commented: “#CelebrityGogglebox I just spent 5 minutes wondering that Rylan’s mom called him Ross than I realized I had the Internet and I found out that his name is Ross, thank goodness for the World Wide Web. “
A fan thought they had the mishead, tweeting: “Ross? Who is Ross? #CelebrityGogglebox …. and then I understood, I had heard @Rylan say on Radio 2, that Ross was his birth name!”
Another said that although they knew the real name of Rylan, they were still surprised.
The fan tweeted: “Hearing Rylan being called Ross by his mother #CelebrityGogglebox I know his name wasn’t expecting it,” said another.
A quarter wrote: “Wait Ross? ROSS? I’m shaken by @Rylan #CelebrityGogglebox.”
Celebrity Gogglebox airs on Friday night at 9pm, with various celebrities appearing.
Among the stars present, the presenter of This Morning Eamonn Holmes and his wife Ruth Langsford, as well as Susanna Reid of the British Good Morning.
Rylan catapulted into family fame after appearing on The X Factor in 2012 and continued to carve out a very successful presentation career.
