Former X-Factor contestant Rylan Clark has spoken to Mirror TV about his new found fame as presenter of Big Brother spin-off Bit On The Side and he seems to be enjoying the confidence it has brought him. The 26-year-old admits that he is not afraid to speak his mind when people criticise him and says that he took a lot of stick from the public after his stint on the X-Factor talent show – particularly for the dazzling veneers that he had put in last year.
Rylan told the publication ‘If anyone abuses me, I’ll have it out. I’m done with all that now. I paid that price when I came off X-Factor, I took, took, took.’ After winning Celebrity Big Brother, Rylan was offered the chance to co-host a spin-off of the reality show and he has chosen to ignore negativity that might reach him via social networking sites like Twitter.
He might get some abuse from Twitter followers about his veneers but Rylan has no regrets, saying ‘I’m glad I did my teeth. I had my teeth done the day I started presenting Big Brother and back then I couldn’t present a show for nothing, but everyone was talking about the teeth so no-one thought I was a crap presenter!’ He also joked that people comment that ‘his new teeth look so much better’ when he hasn’t changed them since they were first placed.
