Lauren loves watching Rylan on The X Factor

Lauren Pope

reckons The X Factor‘s Rylan Clark would do well on The Only Way Is Essex.

The DJ has

revealed that she told TOWIE producers about the Essex singer last year after

meeting him when he appeared on the reality show Signed By Katie Price.

‘I had just joined

the same management company, so I’d go and watch the show being filmed

sometimes,’ Lauren, 30, tells us.

‘I said, you have

got to meet this guy Rylan.’

Even though she’s a fan, Lauren

is backing James Arthur to win The X Factor after her favourite, Ella

, was voted off last Sunday.

‘I was devo’d at

the weekend when Ella got voted off, so now I’m obviously fully rooting for

James, she says.

‘And Jahmene, he’s

obviously got an amazing voice – only I don’t get so excited watching him.

‘But I think maybe

it’s time for the scouser guy to go.’
