X Factor 2012: Rylan Clark claims show has ruined his love life!

Rylan Clark (X Factor 2012)

X Factor star Rylan Clark has claimed that the show has ruined his love life!

The 23-year-old has revealed he's made plenty of fans, but very few are his type.

“I just think after this show I am never going to have sex again!" Rylan said. "I’ve had people on Twitter say 'marry me' – but they’re all like 12-year-old girls! Not really my cup of tea, to be fair."

He explained: “If some 6ft Italian, English guy came up to me and asked me for a date I would not turn it down. I haven’t really got a type, it’s desperate at the minute.

"But if I could design the perfect boyfriend I would say that personality is most important – you can be stunning but if you don’t have banter there’s no point.”

The Essex performer added that his perfect guy would be a cross between David Beckham, comic Alan Carr and his mentor Gary Barlow!

Rylan confessed: "My ideal man would look like David Beckham. He’s totes gorge. I’d also like my dream fella to be funny like Alan Carr and have the guns of Barlow."


The X Factor continues with its live shows this weekend with a guilty pleasures theme.

Sunday's results show will feature performances from Alicia Keys and Olly Murs, as well as one more act being given the boot.
