X Factor 2012: Rylan Clark claims he's more talented than Gary Barlow!

Rylan Clark (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Rylan Clark has claimed that he's more talented than judge Gary Barlow!

Rylan and Gary have failed to hit it off on the show, with the Take That star not fond of Rylan's outrageous performances.

The weekend saw Gary once again call for viewers to boot the 23-year-old out, but the Essex performer avoided the bottom two.

Speaking to heat, Rylan said this week: "To be perfectly honest, Gary ain't really of concern to me in the slightest. Some things I do think he goes a bit far with.

"There's a difference between being critical and having a dig. Why would you kick me in the mouth as I'm about to leave?"

He continued: "What Gary doesn't remember is when he first started out he was the one doing photo shoots with his arse out and stuff. Everyone's got to start somewhere.

"Gary doesn't dance around on stage. Anyone who can sing and dance at the same time... in my eyes, that's more of a talent than just standing there."

Rylan previously admitted that he was keen to win Gary over with his more serious side.

He said: “I have absolute respect for Gary as a mentor and as a musician. I really want to win him over – I don’t want there to be a war between us.

“I reckon by the end of the series we’ll be bessie mates –move over Robbie, I am taking your place!”


The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday and Sunday night on ITV1.

This weekend will see the remaining eleven finalists singing tracks with a Club Classics theme.
