Rylan makes it to X-Factor finals
9:00pm Sunday 30th September 2012 in Echo News
SOUTH Essex' Rylan Clark has made it through to the final 12 of the X-Factor, it was revealed tonight.
Millions tonight saw Rylan, 23, of Stanford-le-Hope, win his place in the live finals.
The party-loving clubber has promised to "bring the X to the X Factor" and wants to record dancefloor anthems.
Rylan has been very impressed with his mentor Nicole Scherzinger who he described as "amazing".
He said: "She's the most stunning woman I've ever met in my life. I even questioned my sexuality when I met her. She's so amazing and we're so on the same level idea wise it's unreal, she's such an asset to me and I hold her very dear."
If he wins he will celebrate in low-key style - with a milky coffee - after he stopped drinking them when he was told they were bad for his throat.
