AFTER strutting his stuff in a “diva hoedown” Stanford-le-Hope’s Rylan Clark is through to the next round of X Factor.

It was revealed tonight, Sunday, that the 23-year-old will join former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger at a luxury resort in Dubai after making it through bootcamp to judges’ houses.

Model Ryan is excited, but realistic about his chances.

He said: “I’m not the best singer in this competition, I know that. But I know it’s in me.

“If I get to the live shows, that’s when I’ll come into myself.

“Saturday nights will never, ever be the same again I’m telling you now.”

Rylan is no stranger to the spotlight.

Last year he came close to being “Signed by Katie Price” after seeing off competition from hundreds of men and women from across the UK to be the runner-up in the former glamour model’s Living TV reality show.
