XFactor 2013: Rylan Clark still in touch with judges (even Gary!)


Rylan Clark has revealed he's still in touch with the X Factor judges, including Gary Barlow!

The Essex performer is currently on tour with other finalists from the show, and is still speaking to Gary, mentor Nicole Scherzinger and both Louis Walsh and Tulisa.

He said this week: "Yes, I've spoken to all four of them since I've come out of the Celebrity Big Brother house.

"They haven't come to see the live show yet, but they're all being really supportive."

And Rylan continued: "I speak to Nicole literally almost every day - we always email or text. She's become like one of my mates from home - she's wicked!"

Meanwhile, Rylan spoke about those rumours that he's set to replace Olly Murs alongside Caroline Flack on the Xtra Factor.

Olly has hinted that he won't be back on the ITV2 spin off this year to focus on his music, and reports have suggested Rylan could be his replacement.

But Rylan insisted: "As far as I'm aware, no one has left the Xtra Factor and I think Olly and Caroline are doing an amazing job."

He added to Now magazine: "I'm flattered my name has been brought up, but, as far as I'm aware, it's all rumours.

"But obviously it is my dream job and I would love to do it.


The X Factor 2013 live tour concludes in Belfast at the end of the month.
