X Factor 2012: Gary Barlow still annoyed with Rylan Clark!

Rylan Clark (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Gary Barlow is still annoyed that Rylan Clark is in the live shows.

Gary said in tonight's first live shows that Nicole should be "ashamed" of putting the 23-year-old through to the live shows, following his performance of Gold by Spandau Ballet.

He added: "I wanted to have some fun this year and I really was until you started singing. I have to be honest and say that I am actually embarrassed to be sat here."

Nicole tried to defend Rylan after his first performance on the live shows tonight, saying backstage afterwards: "He has done such a great job, his vocals have come along so much. He brought it tonight, he's fierce, Gary needs to loosen up a bit more and have fun."

However Gary hit back: "I think I have different ways of having fun. I know how to have fun, I've got three kids!"

He added to Xtra Factor hosts Caroline Flack and Olly Murs: "I've got to be honest, I can't believe we're saying his name, we have the best talent this year, I can't believe it"

But Nicole quipped: "By the end of the season, Gary's going to be wearing gold!"

Rylan himself added after the performance: "It was so surreal, I hope I've done enough

"I agree with that people have been saying to a certain extent, I know not everyone's going to love me."
