Rylan Clark Neal, 32, has expressed his annoyance at the “petrol drought” on his Twitter today as he made reference to his recent split from husband Dan. The Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two host admitted he “had been through enough” this year as he attempted to go undetected for a late-night shopping trip to his local M&S garage.

Rylan typed in view of his 1.6 million followers: “I’ve been through enough this year, really don’t need this petrol drought to make a sly trip to the M&S garage at midnight in a dressing gown taken away from me tbh.”

In response, his fans shared their experiences with the ongoing “fuel shortage” chaos that has been unravelling in the UK this week.

@LuckinJulie typed: “Oh Rylan we have all been to the shop in our PJs either get fuel or food, I’m sure this crisis will be over soon. Watch Strictly in your PJs like me, dance around the living room with your husband and feel fabulous darling! Xx.”

While @Phil_Gahan commented: “Invest in an electric car. 300 miles on one charge these days and one overnight charge is about a fiver hun.”(sic)

And @Willbobber commented: “There is no drought. My brother and I both deliver fuel. We are busy with lots to go around. If a garage is filled and emptied on the same day they will have to close because they order on averages.”

It comes as petrol stations saw long queues as a number of garages in the UK had temporarily closed, with BP and Esso warning of petrol and diesel shortages at some of its stations.

BP said on Thursday it had closed a “handful” of its petrol forecourts due to a lack of available fuel – transport secretary Grant Shapps said as of Thursday five BP petrol stations were affected.

A “small number” of Tesco refilling stations have also been impacted, said Esso owner ExxonMobil, which runs the sites, however, there’s no shortage of petrol or diesel in the UK.

The issues with transporting fuel to petrol stations is being caused by the ongoing shortage of HGV drivers.

BP doesn’t employ any lorry drivers directly, it outsources deliveries to Hoyer, an independent haulier.

Rylan recently returned to work, after taking a break from the spotlight to process the end of his marriage to Dan.

On his first show back on BBC Radio 2 earlier this month, Rylan thanked his fans for all their support through the tough times.

“It really is me. Welcome back to Rylan on Saturday,” he told listeners.

“You are listening to Rylan on Saturday and it is good to be back in the seat and a massive thank you to Vernon, to Gary, to Oti and to Cat Deeley for keeping this seat and my little baby lovely and warm.

“When we’re allowed I’ll give you all a big cuddle. Thank you so so much.”

“Secondly a massive thank you to you, the lovely listeners and thank you for all your lovely messages.”

Rylan confirmed his split from Dan back in June, where he admitted he was “trying to take each day at a time”.

“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,” he said in a statement at the time.

“I have made a number of mistakes which I deeply regret and have inevitably led to the breakdown of our marriage.

“I am trying to take each day at a time and would like to thank you to everyone for their support and for respecting our privacy at this time.”
