Speaking exclusively to The Sun Rylan said: ‘All I can say is me and Holly have done something and you’ll find out what it is very soon!

‘Put it this way, we’re not doing a show together but all will become clear…’ he added.

It comes as Holly could be set to continue her TV career in America after leaving This Morning last year when she became the subject of a terrifying kidnap plot. 

For the first time in her career, she’s now a ‘free agent’ and is keen to explore opportunities across the pond and draw a line under her domestic troubles.

Following her ‘year from hell’, which saw her embroiled in Phillip Schofield’s controversial This Morning exit and become the subject of the kidnap plot, Holly could be set to continue her TV career in America.

It’s a scenario that seemed highly unlikely just 18 months ago, when in-demand Holly was locked in a contract battle between ITV and the BBC.

Holly quit This Morning after 14 years in October following Phillip’s sacking from the broadcaster. 

He left the show after admitting to an affair with a younger colleague and lying to his co-star when questioned about the mounting speculation.

After she returned to the ITV programme without him, Holly was mocked for the statement she made addressing the nation, asking whether viewers were ‘okay’ following the revelation.

She then faced a further setback as a man was arrested for an alleged plot to kidnap and murder her, leaving her terrified. 

According to reports, she was too afraid to leave her house after Gavin Plumb was charged with the crime, forcing her off-air for months. 

She deliberated over whether to present Dancing On Ice with new co-host Stephen Mulhern, finally deciding to return to work in the New Year.

But it could be the last UK show she presents before going to America with sources close to Holly saying it is the first time in her career she’s a ‘free agent’ and looking for new prospects. 

A source told the Sun on Sunday that she is meeting with ‘US bigwigs’ including bosses at streaming platform Disney+.

They explained: ‘Holly’s a free agent and for the first time in years she’s free to be courted by these huge streaming platforms.

‘A number of US networks and production companies have been interested in her for a while and she’s caught the attention of some major brands.’
