Flamboyant Essex boy Rylan Clark is pretty hard to miss. Not as much now he's got rid of his long blonde hair, but he still does a good job of getting people's attention.

The 23-year-old made people sit up and take notice when he performed an 'Ibiza' version of Kissing You by Des’ree - you know, that song from Romeo And Juliet when Leonardo Di Caprio falls for Claire Danes. Despite Gary Barlow hating him, he got through and he's impressed ever since. He may not be the best singer in the competition, but by jove he might just be the most fun.

At boot camp this preened fella, who says he spends most of his money on botox andd fake tan, wowed the judges with his rendition of the Pussycat Dolls' Don't Cha. Nicole Scherzinger was particularly impressed as you can imagine.

We cannot wait to see what outfits Rylan, 23, pulls out of the bag for Judges' Houses!
