X Factor 2012: Nicole Scherzinger argues with Gary Barlow over Rylan Clark

Nicole Scherzinger (The X Factor 2012)

Nicole Scherzinger and Gary Barlow argue about X Factor finalist Rylan Clark this weekend.

Rylan Clark is The X Factor contestant that everyone’s talking about this year. He famously howled when Nicole delivered the news that she was taking him to the live shows, but it’s clear Gary wouldn’t have made the same choice if Rylan had been in his category.

“Come on Nicole, you’ve got ears,” says Gary, when they discussing Rylan with Nicole on the Jonathan Ross show tonight.

“His voice has grown and he’s not a big ballad singer, he’s a great performer,” defends Nicole.

Meanwhile Gary admits to sneaking red wine into his teacup during the live shows, telling Jonathan that he’s a big red wine drinker.

“(I like) any red wine. I’m picky with food, not with drink,” says Gary.

Jonathan jokes that Gary gets drunk during the show.

“That is actually slightly true,” says Gary. “I don’t drink during the ITV1 show but as we flip to ITV2, and I realise less people are watching, my tea arrives and it has got red wine in it,” he laughs.

The Jonathan Ross Show, 10.20pm, Saturday 6th October, ITV1
