It Takes Two, which is broadcast live on most days of the week, is pre-recorded for Tuesday's show. He's been singing since 9:15 this morning - with radio legend Ken Bruce for company - and will finish at the same time tomorrow, all to raise money for the charity. Rylan's marathon is being streamed live on BBC iPlayer, BBC Radio 2 and BBC Sounds, leaving some fans confused how he's able to do that and do It Takes Two. It can also be watched on the BBC Red Button service on telly. (Image: Instagram) Fans took to Twitter with their questions, one asking: "Anyone know how @Rylan is on @BBCTwo Strictly It Takes Two???
Thought he was doing #KaRYoke?? Is ITT not live??" Another joked: "So clever how Rylan can do this and #KaRYoke at the same time! The magic of TV! #ItTakesTwo #itt." "So, how does this work?" a third asked, "Rylan Clark is singing a 24hr charity thing for @BBCCiN on Radio 2 and won't finish until early tomorrow morning." (Image: BBC) The BBC said: "The Tuesday show is always pre-recorded on Monday. All the others are live." Rylan - who's new to It Takes Two this year - is doing the marathon to raise funds for disadvantaged young people across the UK - he even visited a youth club before he got going for inspiration. He got in Journey's Livin on a Prayer and Laura Branigan's Gloria in early, among some other bangers. "It was amazing," he gushed, "And do you know what? I didn't actually think about this when I signed up to do this. "I didn't really think that I would need that, but actually visiting the project and meeting all the kids and volunteers and speaking to them and understanding how much this money impacts their lives, when I'm sort of dying at four o'clock in the morning trying to garble together, I know what I'm doing it for now." Meanwhile, It Takes Two saw two of the couples favourite to win sit down for a chat with Rylan. Michelle Visage and Giovanni Pernice were on a high after the judges' gushing praise on Saturday, while Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden were feeling a tad disappointed at their 30 points. Rylan pointed out that 30 is still a very high score. *It Takes Two airs weekdays at 6.30pm on BBC One
