X-Factor favourite Rylan Clark’s has already kicked off his celebrity career after winning a presenting job on ITV’s Daybreak.

The Essex boy who wooed the X Factor audiences with his big performances has landed the job just a week after getting the boot from the show.

Rylan, 24, will be filling in for presenter Richard Arnold who is taking a break after his exit from Strictly Come Dancing.

Starting next Monday Rylan will be guest entertainment reporter giving him time to test drive his TV skills.

‘I’m a massive fan of the show and it’s going to be so much fun sharing all the showbiz news and gossip with the nation each morning.’

‘I’m looking forward to keeping Richard’s seat warm while he’s swanning off on holiday, but I won’t be asking for any dancing tips just yet.’

Richard, who was voted off Strictly last month said he was pleased for Rylan and joked about being replaced by a younger, thinner version of himself, and added: “I wish Rylan all the best in his new role at Daybreak.”
