X Factor 2012: Rylan Clark heads home after being evicted from hotel

Rylan Clark (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Rylan Clark has revealed he's gone back home after being booted out of the show's hotel!

The singer was kicked out of the 5 star hotel that the contestants have been sharing along with Lucy Spraggan, after the pair attracted some rather unwanted press with their drunken antics.

Speaking to the Thurrock Gazette, Rylan said: "I’m going to come home, see my mum. I’ve not seen her for six weeks and we’re very close so that’s been hard, but it will be nice to chill out, see her and have a few friends round.

“My mum’s told me the support has been great, with people knocking on the door and calling her.

“I really appreciate the support, so please don’t stop voting! I want to bring the title back to Essex.”

At the weekend Rylan once again had a tough time from the judges, and Gary Barlow wasn't won over.

The Take That star told Rylan after his mashup of dance tracks: “If this was a competition of how many songs you could kill in two minutes, you would win hands down”.

But Rylan wasn't too worried about Gary, saying: “I really enjoyed myself on Saturday. I was really nervous in the first week, but this week, I just thought I’m going to enjoy it. “I’ve worked liked every other contestant to get where we are. People don’t realise how much work goes in.

“I’ve got no expectations to win the show. I’m serious about doing dance music, but if going on stage and having fun makes you a joke act then fine, but I’m loving it and I’m so grateful for all the support.”

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, while JLS and Labrinth will guest star on Sunday night's third live results show.
