Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack has said she thinks Gary Barlow will grow to love Rylan Clark.
While we admire Caroline's optimism, we're not so sure.
Gary didn't hold back with Rylan at the weekend, telling him: "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 speaking to the Daily Star today, Caroline insisted: “I think that he might grow to love Rylan one day. I can be Cilla Black between them."
And the Xtra Factor co-host defended Gary from claims he was taking the show too seriously.
Caroline told the newspaper: “Gary’s not taking the fun out of X Factor – he’s the most fun when he comes on the Xtra Factor.
“I think he’s just passionate about the kind of act he wants to mentor."
She added: “Nothing’s predictable on X Factor. The bottom two in the past few weeks have been surprises.
“Even with someone like Ella Henderson, there’s always a chance she could be at risk of people not voting because they think she’s safe.”

The latest results show follows on Sunday, which will feature performances from Fun. and Robbie Williams, as well as one more act being given the boot.
