X Factor finalist Rylan Clark has explained why he broke into a hysterical crying fit when Nicole Scherzinger told him he had made the live shows, saying he was "hungover."
The 23-year-old became a trending topic on Twitter during Sunday night's episode when he collapsed on the floor in uncontrollable floods of tears when he had learned that he had made the final 12 contestants.
While some criticised his hysterics, claiming he was putting on a performance to draw attention to himself, Rylan says it was actually a combination of factors that caused him to finally lose it.
"I was just so hot, it was fifty degrees out there and I was a bit hungover and it all hit me…it just all came out," Rylan told Lorraine Kelly on her morning show.
"Apparently I looked like Jimmy Hill and Kylie’s love child," he quipped.
