The glamour model-turned-reality TV personality is sticking up for the much-maligned Rylan after the Essex boy was the runner-up on her Signed By Katie Price talent search show last year.
Appearing on Daybreak, Pricey said: "I'm supporting Rylan so watch The X Factor and support him tomorrow. I had to say that."
And when asked about Rylan's pledge to sing a duet with her if he made the final, she replied: "We do in my lounge. I've got my karaoke set up, I'm a frustrated popstar aren't I, so we've done many duets in the lounge... but I'm better than Rylan. No, I'm only joking I'm not really."
Meanwhile, Rylan has been keeping his options open - conceding that he would consider an appearance on The Only Way Is Essex if the time was right.
Digital Spy quoted him as saying: "I'm concentrating on X Factor at the moment. It's my priority. But a couple of my friends are in the show and I absolutely love it, I love the show. It's gone from strength to strength, series to series.
"Who knows, maybe one day. It's something I wouldn't mind getting involved with, but at the minute I want to do dance music and it's my priority.
"Having Nicole [Scherzinger] and everyone behind me is brilliant."
