According to reports, the BBC boss has requested Rylan Clarke-Neill to take a year off.
The request came after 32-year-old Rylan ‘broken down during his Radio 2 show’ last month, causing the producers to ‘organize a crisis meeting’.
Rylan – who is set to divorce her husband Dan Neal after fighting to save their six-year marriage – withdrew from the BBC Radio 2 show for four months following their split earlier this year and now worries expressed that his return to work was too hasty.

a source told Sun that Rylan ‘began crying during a Radio 2 show in September’ implying ‘the collaborators had to load the next track so Rylan could make himself’.
He continued: ‘Rylan is one of the BBC’s favorite stars. When he returned to work everyone supported him but when he broke down people worried that he would come back very fast.
The source continued: ‘One of the BBC’s top executives was at the meeting. He also suggested that he take a break of one year to focus on himself.
In the wake of Rylan and policeman Dan’s split, friends ask the couple to spend weeks ‘trying to work through their problems’, but now the marriage cannot be saved.

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Rylan for comment.
In June, Rylan broke his silence, saying: ‘Following reports about Dan and me spending time apart, I feel like I have to speak up because the way it’s being reported is unfair.
‘I have made many mistakes which I deeply regret and inevitably our marriage has fallen apart.’
Sources close to Clark-Neal told The Mail on Sunday that the couple tried to reconcile their marital home after they spent a lot of summer with their mother, Linda, who appears on their Saturday afternoon Radio 2 show.
