X Factor: Rylan hits back at Gary Barlow comments

X Factor’s Rylan Clark has hit back at judge Gary Barlow for calling him “absolute s**te” at a recent gig.

The Essex-born singer, who has had an ongoing battle with Barlow on the X Factor live shows, was taunted by the Take That star at a gig in East London earlier this week.

Responding to the incident after it was reported in the press today, Clark reminded Barlow that he “entered the x factor…. NOT the voice” and appeared to complain that Maloney has not grown as an artist.

“I’d rather be ‘absolute s***’ than just stand there and sing the same old stuff every week on the spot……. #boreme @GBarlowOfficial,” he tweeted.

“And I entered the x factor…. NOT the voice….. Cheers……”

Clark has previously claimed that his feud with Barlow is put on and even suggested that the pair perform a duet should he reach the X Factor final.

Barlow, however, has blamed Clark’s presence in the show for the unjust departure of “good acts” like Ella Henderson, who was controversially voted out last weekend.
