Rylan was beside himself to meet Davina

Rylan practically jumped Davina as she was interviewed by hosts Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes on the ITV daytime show.

"It's Davina! It's Big Muvva! Three years I've waited to meet Davina McCall!" he screamed, as they hugged intensely.

Before the segment he shared his excitement at their meeting, saying: "Can I just tell you it's the best day of my life!"

The pair got carried away on Friday's 'This Morning'

Abandoning his role as the show’s entertainment reporter, he threw his cue cards up in the air and said: "I've got some showbiz gossip but don't worry about that, I'm going to see Davina!"

After the show, Rylan tweeted: “Just had a 26 second hug with @ThisisDavina and I'm now dead X.”

Sharing a picture of their embrace, Davina added: “Matthew [her husband] is going to have something to say about this X.”

Davina presented the Channel 4 version of ‘Big Brother’ from 2000 to 2010, before Brian Dowling took over when it moved to Channel 5 in 2011.
