Robbie Williams: I want Rylan in my family life
Robbie Williams wants 'X Factor' star Rylan Clark to be on the television on a regular basis

Robbie Williams wants 'X Factor' contestant Rylan Clark in his family life.
The 'Candy' singer - whose Take That bandmate Gary Barlow has expressed a dislike of Rylan - would love for the Essex hopeful to do well on the show so he could hang around with him on a regular basis by himself and with his wife Ayda and daughter Theodora.
In scenes where Robbie mentors Rylan, he says: "I don't know what stick Gary's got up his behind, what have you done to upset him?
"I'm a big, big fan and I want you in my family's life. In some way, shape or form, I wanna see you on the TV an awful lot and bump into you backstage at places and say, 'Hey, how are you doing?' "
Robbie also taunted Gary, claiming he was backing Rylan - who is mentored by Nicole Scherzinger - to win the show.
He added: "Gaz, I don't know what this young man has done to offend you so much and I don't understand how you are missing out on the obvious brilliance and talent of Rylan.
"But I am not - I am strictly Team Rylan all the way."
Rylan has been in the bottom two of the show once, and previously performed with a group of fashion pandas.
