X Factor star Rylan Clark has said he feels he's winning over Gary Barlow.

The 23-year-old performer from Essex sung a medley of Toxic by Britney Spears, Horny by Mousse T and Poison by mentor Nicole Scherzinger for this evening's Halloween themed show.

Nicole Scherzinger told him: "For me, that was my favourite performance so far, you did a beautiful job you had fun and you let go."

Gary Barlow commented: "Rylan, I've realised that I've not given you an honest critique yet. It wasn't any worse than last week. The music was so loud, I couldn't hear you sing, that was a good thing. I liked the dancers."

Speaking on the Xtra Factor, Rylan reckons that he's slowly winning over the Take That star.

"I'm loving life, Gary's had a lot to drink tonight, he's been quite alright to me tonight," he said.

But when Rylan opened a special birthday present from Gary on the ITV2 spin-off show, it seemed that his hopes were dashed as he unwrapped a Singing for Dummies book.

But an optimistic Rylan quipped: "If I get through to next week, this might help me right out!"
