Early and personal life

Clark-Neal was born Ross Richard Clark [1] on 25 October 1988 in Stepney, East London, [2] to mother Linda Clark. [3] In 2007, he applied for Big Brother 8 , but, "the day I was going in, it got taken away from me because it got leaked to the press. It was devastating." [4]

Clark-Neal has been a part-time model since he was 16. [5] It was during his early modelling career that he adopted the stage name "Rylan", [1] which was conceived when he went into a branch of WHSmith and chose the name from the R section of a baby name book. [6] He was in several Take That and Westlife tribute bands in Ibiza, [2] and was also part of a Spanish boy band called 4bidden until 2010. [5] [7]

In September 2014, Clark-Neal got engaged to Big Brother 14 housemate Dan Neal. [8] On 7 November 2015, the couple got married. [9]

Career

2010–2012: Career beginnings

In 2010, Clark-Neal appeared in four episodes of the BBC series John Bishop's Britain . Clark-Neal was then a finalist on Sky Living modelling series Signed by Katie Price . [10] In May 2012, Clark-Neal auditioned for the ninth series of The X Factor at The O2 Arena in London in front of Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow, Tulisa and guest judge Rita Ora. He performed a dance version of Des'ree's "Kissing You". Barlow said afterwards: "Rylan, love your personality, hate your voice, really strange song choice as well." Walsh also admitted that he was "a bit worried". Barlow gave Clark-Neal a "no", but Ora, Tulisa and Walsh all decided to say "yes" and they put him through to bootcamp.

At bootcamp, Clark-Neal sang The Pussycat Dolls' "Don't Cha" with former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, who was now a judge. After his performance, Barlow admitted: "[I] think he's going to haunt me throughout this competition." Barlow was reluctant to send Clark-Neal through to judges' houses, however, the other three judges were in favour of him advancing. Clark-Neal was eventually put through into the boys category with Scherzinger as his mentor. At judges' houses in Dubai, Clark-Neal performed a stripped-back rendition of Rihanna's "We Found Love" in front of Scherzinger and Ne-Yo. Scherzinger later put Clark-Neal through to the live shows as one of her final three acts with James Arthur and Jahméne Douglas. She told him: "Rylan, it's such a big risk... but I have to take it, and you are in my final three.", and then Clark-Neal appeared to have an immense breakdown. [11]

Clark-Neal sang "Gold" by Spandau Ballet in the first week of the live shows, and was in the bottom two with Carolynne Poole the following night. Scherzinger voted to save Clark as he was her own act, while Barlow and Tulisa voted to save Poole, based on their final showdown performance. Walsh, who had the casting vote, voted to save Clark, sending the result to deadlock, in which Clark had received more public votes than Poole and was saved, much to the disgust of Barlow, who stormed off stage and later called Clark-Neal a "joke act" and "talentless". [12]

In week 2, Clark-Neal persisted to wind Barlow up by first performing part of Barlow's "Back for Good" and claiming that he had booked him a cab in advance in case he stormed off stage again, to which Barlow responded "That's funny [because] I've had yours on hold for two weeks." [13] That week, Clark-Neal was put through to week three on the public vote. [14] In week 5, he was in the bottom two again with Kye Sones, but he was saved by the public vote. This followed after Barlow and Walsh voted to eliminate Clark while Scherzinger and Tulisa, who had the casting vote, voted to eliminate Sones. Tulisa sent the result to deadlock and Sones was eliminated. [15] In week 7, Clark revealed on The Xtra Factor that his psychic had told him he would reach week 7 of the competition before leaving, [16] but the following night, he advanced to the quarter-final by the public vote. [17]

[18] He made it to the final five with Neil "Razor" Ruddock, Claire Richards, Ryan Moloney and Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt (Heidi & Spencer being counted as a single housemate).
