Singer Rita Ora appeared as a guest judge on The X Factor last year and one of the biggest things she did on the show, was agree to put Rylan Clark through to boot camp. However, Rita has now admitted that, if she was a permanent judge on the show, she would never have allowed him to go through.
Ora told OMG! From Yahoo!, “I let him through in the beginning because he had a lot of energy and enthusiasm on stage. I didn’t know where they [the judges] would take it. I knew that if I was a permanent judge I wouldn’t have let him through. But because I knew I was a guest judge and I wouldn’t have to deal with it- I was cheeky.”
Rita also admitted that she wasn’t sure where Rylan’s career could go after his stint on Big Brother, “I don’t know what he could do. I have no idea. You never know though, these days you can find a job in anything. I think you can become famous with anything nowadays,” she added.
Rylan Clark is still in the running to be the Celebrity Big Brother 2013 winner and is currently the favourite to win the show. Meanwhile, Rita Ora will be hoping to build on her 2012 success, she had two number one singles and a number one album, with another big year in 2013.
