X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger reckons that Rylan Clark is starting to win Gary Barlow over.
Rylan managed to finally get some sort of positive response from the Take That star at the weekend, after a mash up of Halloween themed songs.
Nicole said: "It must’ve killed him! Saying something vaguely positive to Rylan must’ve been like pulling teeth for him.
"I really do believe that Rylan is finally getting through to Gary!"
She added: "I’d love to throw them both in a room together and lock them in. They need to hug it out."
And Nicole revealed she loved watching Robbie Williams with Rylan: "That was so funny! I think Robbie gave Rylan some invaluable advice and it was great to see them connect."
There were some spats between the judges at the weekend, but Nicole just puts it down to passion!
She told the official ITV1 website: "I think we’re like one big dysfunctional family! I didn’t get involved. As Judges, we’re very passionate about our acts."
