Caroline Flack has claimed that Rylan Clark could well win the X Factor this year.
The Xtra Factor presenter has been a big fan of the controversial singer since judges houses and has really bonded with him over the last few weeks on the ITV show.
He’s been bookies favourite to leave for what seems like months now, but despite being in the bottom two twice, he’s always been saved and this weekend he will perform on the guilty pleasures themed show, as one of the final six acts.
Speaking on This Morning, Caz insisted that she loved his Spice Girls mashup last Saturday and says Clark is improving each time he takes to the stage. She said:
“His performance was incredible, he spent the week with Geri Halliwell which I think helped. He was just really ready for it.”
Flack revealed that the hopeful is always prepared to leave the series and on each results show is convinced he will be going home, but she thinks people now need to realise that he could win next month and added:
“Rylan has got this mentality now where he thinks every performance is his last so he gives it his all and really enjoys it but I think perhaps it’s time to start considering the fact that he might win.”
After weeks of slating the wannabe, even Gary Barlow was warmer than usual to Rylan at the weekend, telling him that his performance was brilliant, though he did add that his singing was ‘diabolical.’
Caroline thinks that the Take That star’s change in attitude is indicative of what’s happening with viewers in general and claimed that people are starting to come around to Katie Price’s pal.
“He’s so fun! What you notice with Rylan and what I have certainly noticed in the studio audience is on day one he walked in and people booed him. Now he gets the biggest cheer, people have completely turned the other way and warmed to him.”
Rylan spent this morning rehearsing his new song for Saturday and before he took off for a trip to Disneyland, he tweeted his fans thanking them for their continued support. He wrote:
“Don’t know what to say THANK YOU ALL so much! Cant thank you enough for picking up your phones. Means the world! Love you’s so much! Rylan x”
