X Factor 2012: Robbie Williams backs Rylan Clark to annoy Gary Barlow!

Gary Barlow (The X Factor 2012)

Robbie Williams has given his backing to Rylan Clark, no doubt in a bid to wind up Gary Barlow!

Perhaps after being subbed for judges' houses by Gary this year, the 'Candy' hitmaker has thrown his support behind Gary's foe Ryaln.

Writing in his personal blog on his website, Robbie said simply: "TEAM RYLAN ALL THE WAY

It's sure to be a downer for Gary, who last night once again clashed with the 23-year-old from Essex on the show.

Following Rylan's latest wacky performance mashup - which included songs by Rhianna and JLo for this week's club classics theme - Gary blasted: "My problem is that for every week you’re here another talented contestant will be going home.

"You always say you’re a dance act, you should have been the best performer tonight but you were the worst.”

But with support building for Rylan it seems that Gary could be in danger of losing one of his acts again tonight, the third in as many weeks.

As well as featuring the latest sing off and subsequent elimination, this evening's episode will also feature performances from JLS and Labrinth.
