X Factor 2012: Rylan Clark wants to give Gary Barlow a makeover

Rylan Clark (X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 hopeful Rylan Clark has revealed he hopes to give Gary Barlow a Rylan make over!

After taking mentor Nicole Scherzinger on a trip to Essex last week, Rylan now wants to get Gary in Amy Childs' beauty salon.

"Gary looks great but he’d look even better after I’ve finished with him," Rylan told the official ITV1 X Factor website this week.

He said: "I’d put him in some skinny jeans and a tight top. Have you seen how big his guns are? He needs to show them off more! Remember Gazza, every street is a catwalk."

However if Gary turns down Rylan's offer, there's always mentor Nicole who is up for a good time.

"Nic is like the sister I never had. We never argue and I absolutely adore her. She’s so glamorous too. I could see us getting glammed up and painting the town red together," Rylan said. "I’d probably have to act as a makeshift bodyguard all night to fend off any unwelcome advances from boys. I mean, look at her! She’s outta this."

Meanwhile, Rylan admitted he was left "distraught" during Halloween week when bosses banned him from using fake tan.

He explained: "They wouldn’t let us wear fake-tan that week due to the theme being gothic and all. I get shudders even thinking about that week – it was horrendous. As you know, pale and pasty aren’t words in my vocabulary."

He continued: "The secret to a good tan is to apply three layers at once. You can never be too brown. Also, use a mitt to buff your tan. Don’t under any circumstances use latex gloves. They’re evil; the chemicals in them will make your tan go green. Nobody wants to look like Shrek now, do they?"


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.
