All is not lost for Rylan Clark. Despite being the latest X Factor contestant to be sent home, it looks like his 15 minutes might not be up quite yet.

According to The Metro, Rylan is eyeing up next year's Eurovision contest with the hope of entering. 

Rylan said, "If the country wanted me to represent them (at Eurovision) then I’d happily fly the flag."

And the 24-year-old singer would be perfect for the show, which is already used to X Factor contestants - Jedward have entered two years in a row for Ireland.

Bookies William Hill are currently offering odds of 16/1 that he represents the UK next year.

Spokesperson Mark Young said, "Rylan has really turned the public opinion of him since the live shows started, a number one record may not be far off and we are hearing chat that a Eurovision stint is a possibility."

Let's be honest, Rylan wouldn't be anywhere near the worst person we've entered.


Remember: this happened.

Eurovision isn't the only TV show that Rylan is setting his sights on, with rumours that he could star on both The Only Way Is Essex and Celebrity Big Brother in the future.

Rylan has hinted that he may have a cameo role in next week's live TOWIE episode, telling Yahoo OMG!, "There is a live episode and I may be part of it, it could definitely happen. I am up for anything and I’ve got a lot of friends there so a week today, who knows."

The Sun is also reporting that the producers of Celebrity Big Brother have approached Rylan to take part in the new series next year.
