Rylan Clark Drops Out Of Live TOWIE Episode

The X Factor star's exit follows threat by cast members Mario and Kirk to quit...

Rylan Clark has pulled out of this evening's first-ever live episode of The Only Way Is Essex.

The singer, who has become a household name after his stint on this year's The X Factor, has claimed that he is too busy with commitments to the ITV talent show.

The Mirror
quoted Rylan: "TOWIE's a great programme and I wish them all the best of luck. But I can't do the show because I've got commitments to the X Factor tour and I've got to be in rehearsals."

But his decision follows a threat by TOWIE cast members Mario Falcone and Kirk Norcross to quit the show if Rylan were recruited as a regular cast member.
