Rylan previously revealed his joy at returning to Gogglebox with him mum, despite constantly worrying about what she is going to say.
Speaking to The Sun, Rylan said: “It’s the easiest job in the world but also the most worrying because I don’t know what is going to come out of her mouth.
“I can literally sit there and do fuck all and she just does it, which is great. She has no idea she’s even doing it.
“That is what makes it work with her, that is why people love her. I am always there thinking ‘what the fuck is going to come out of her mouth?’”
