X Factor's Rylan Clarke gets job presenting ITV's Daybreak

 

X Factor flop Rylan is heading back to our screens with a presenting stint on ITV's Daybreak only days after being voted off the talent show.

The 24-year-old singer, whose quirky performances split public opinion, will fill in for Richard Arnold on the breakfast show next week while the presenter takes a break after his exit from Strictly Come Dancing.

He said: "I can't believe it. I only left X Factor a week ago and now I'm joining Lorraine (Kelly) and Aled (Jones) on the Daybreak sofa.

"I'm a massive fan of the show and it's going to be so much fun sharing all the showbiz news and gossip with the nation each morning.

"I'm looking forward to keeping Richard's seat warm while he's swanning off on holiday, but I won't be asking for any dancing tips just yet."

Arnold, who was voted out of Strictly this month, said: "The wonderful thing about this hurly burly business we call show is that you know ultimately you will one day be replaced by someone younger, thinner and, in this case, much taller than you. I wish Rylan all the best in his new role at Daybreak."
