X Factor 2012: Rylan Clark's family snubbed at his party!

Rylan Clark (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Rylan Clark snubbed his own family during his birthday party this week.

The Daily Mirror reports that Rylan stayed behind a barrier of security guards as he filmed with the show's judges and fellow finalists ahead of Saturday night's show.

Even though family and friends were invited to the party in London's Mayfair, they were banned from even speaking to to Rylan!

A family member told the newspaper: “What’s the point of coming if we aren’t even going to get to speak to him?”

And an onlooker added: “A lot of people made the trek from Essex for what was meant to be his birthday party but he spent most of the night behind both a cordon and security.

"No one could get close.”

Most of the finalists were at the party, along with judges Nicole Scherzinger and Tulisa.

But favourite Ella Henderson had to stay at home, because she was too young.

A show insider commented: “Ella is only 16 so we couldn’t allow her to go out clubbing.

“She got to go on a ghost tour with the other contestants.”
