X Factor 2012: Rylan Clark

X Factor 2012: Rylan Clark

From: Essex
Category: Boys
Mentor: Nicole

Essex boy Rylan is always the life and soul of the party – a dedicated clubber and party go-er who wants to record dance anthems that will be played in Ibiza!

Since his first audition, when 23 year-old Rylan had long blonde hair, he now sports a short back and sides and black hair. In his words he says he has gone from ‘Barbie to Ken’.

Rylan spends hundreds of pounds every month on his grooming – spray tans, facials – you name it, he has it done! When any contestant is asked about their time in the hotel so far, everyone mentions Rylan; he is at the centre of everything that goes on.

He shares a room with James Arthur – he says: “I am constantly cleaning up after James, I am like the mother hen. Saying that, I am the one who brings everyone to our room for a party too.” Rylan has confessed to being mugged…by a fox! It ran off with his wallet so he called the police to get a crime number…he says his assailant is ‘still at large’.
