Gogglebox fans went into meltdown as they discovered Rylan Clark-Neal’s real name on Friday 3 July’s episode.

Rylan, 31, appeared alongside his mum Linda to react to this week’s TV shows and movies on the popular Channel 4 programme.

And fans couldn’t help but notice Linda calling her son Ross rather than Rylan as they had a back and fourth over iced fingers in one particular scene.

As former Big Brother star Rylan fetched a plate of iced fingers from the kitchen in the background, he told his mum: “I bet you’ll have one.”

Meanwhile Linda sat on the sofa and insisted: “No I won’t. Ross will you stop it, I don’t want one.”

Clearly unfazed by his mother referring to him as Ross, he urged: “They are nice, though.”

To which Linda said: “Well, you eat it and I’ll take a couple home with me. You’re only gonna eat two.”

She then noticed Rylan had more than two buns on the plate and asked: “How many have you got?”

Rylan then admits: “Three,” to which his mum reacts with: “Three?! You greedy s*d.”

The scene, in which Linda spilled her son’s real name, caused a frenzy amongst fans on Twitter, who shared their shock over the revelation.

One wrote: “Just when I thought 2020 couldn’t shock me anymore I find out @Rylann ame isn’t Rylan it’s……….Ross”. [sic]

Another quizzed: “@Rylan watching gogglebox tonight and I had to rewind it a few times because I'm sure your Mum called you Ross when you were both talking about your iced fingers?? Am I right? Is that what she calls you????” [sic]

And a third asked: “Why did Rylan’s mum call him Ross?? #CelebrityGogglebox”.

To which a fan replied to explain: “I thought that too… turns out rylan is a stage name, he’s actually called Ross Richard Clark-Neal”. [sic]

While another commented: “#CelebrityGogglebox Just spent 5 minutes wondering Rylan's mum called him Ross than I realised I have the Internet and found out his first name is Ross thank goodness for the world wide web.”

And another shocked fan wrote: “Wait Ross? ROSS? I’m shook @Rylan #CelebrityGogglebox.”

Rylan, who rose to fame on The X Factor in 2012, created his stage name during his early modelling career, which started when he was around 16.

However his mum, husband Dan and the rest of his family are understood to refer to him by his birth name.
