Rylan Clark has already given us one of this year’s X Factor highlights. His hilarious crying when boys mentor Nicole Scherzinger told him he was through to the live shows got everyone talking.
However, it doesn’t look like we should expect any more Oscar-worthy tears from lovely Rylan because he’s said that the heat of Dubai and a nasty hangover made him react so emotionally,
“I was just so hot, it was fifty degrees out there and I was a bit hungover and it all hit me…it just all came out,” he told Lorraine Kelly this morning.
At least he’s taking his televised mini-meltdown with good humour, “Apparently I looked like Jimmy Hill and Kylie’s love child,” he laughed.
Impressed by Rylan
Rylan is desperate to shed his novelty act reputation, and it sounds like his doubters could be in for a big surprise.
X Factor’s creative director Brian Friedman told us that he’s really impressed by the Essex singer,
“I was really surprised by all the contestants. Some of them I thought were going to be a lot more introverted than they actually were, others surprised me with how little stage process they have,” Brian said.
“I can say that I loved the process with Rylan. It was funny because he says he can move and it’s different when you actually put someone to the test. In our first meeting he said, ‘Oh I can dance, I can do everything’ and I was like, ‘OK, we’ll see,’ but he did really well, very impressed by him.”
Bring on the first live show.
