X Factor 2012: Rylan Clark 'wants to be a brand like Katie Price'

Rylan Clark (X Factor 2012)

X Factor's Rylan Clark has said he wants to become a 'brand' like Katie Price.

Dropping the pretense that he's on the show to sing, Rylan confessed he just wanted to be famous.

Speaking to Digital Spy, the 23-year-old said: "At the end of the day I don't want a normal job. I think I'd love to be a brand.

"I'd love to be a household name and I think I've achieved that already... I can sing, I can dance, there's a lot more to me as well, like I love fashion. I'd love to have my own stuff."

Rylan admitted he would love to emulate his celebrity pal Katie Price, who has been supporting him throughout the show.

He told the website: "[Katie and I], we're actually quite similar people and look what's happened, we're getting quite similar press.

"I'd love to have an ounce of success that she's had... anyone in their right mind that says, 'I wouldn't like to have the same career as Katie Price', I would think they're f**king lying."

But it seems that the pressure of a celebrity lifestyle is getting to Rylan, who admitted this morning that he hate was getting "too much".

He tweeted: "The press need to stop writing lies now, it was all harmless fun at first but this Is too much now."
