X Factor 2012: Robbie Williams to duet with Rylan Clark (if he makes the final)

Rylan Clark (X Factor 2012)

Robbie Williams has said he's up for singing with Rylan Clark, if the wacky singer (that's Rylan!) makes the X Factor final.

The Take That also suggested that Rylan could sing along with Kylie Minogue, if the 23-year-old survives the latest eliminations.

Robbie told the Metro newspaper: "If Rylan does get to the final then maybe it will be me (singing with him). I wouldn’t mind. I’d love that, I love Rylan.

"I think Kylie Minogue might do a better job with Rylan because I think she’s dancey and poppy but if needs be I’ll turn up if they’re short."

Robbie also gushed about his former Take That bandmate and X Factor judge Gary Barlow, saying the show is lucky to have him onboard.

"I know he wanted to come back this year and put his stamp on it and I think he’s done that and I think he’s done that very well," he said. "I think he’s obviously the main judge and he’s got a valid opinion, if I need to go somewhere for advice Gary’s the first port of call."

Robbie added: "If he comes back [next year], The X Factor will be very lucky to have him, if he doesn’t, I’m sure he’ll find something to do. Gary’s his own man."


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a Best Of British theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from One Direction and Little Mix, as well as one more act being given the boot.
