Rylan has come a long way since his X Factor audition days – and looks almost unrecognisable too! The 30-year-old shot to our screens back in 2012 as a then 23-year-old, who impressed the judges with his performance. Rylan rocked long, blonde hair extensions for the performance, and was quick to tell judge Rita Ora that it wasn’t his natural hair. During his audition, Rylan opened up about his appearance, telling the cameras about the work he had done to perfect his looks. He said: "I had my hair done, my tan done, teeth whitening, straightened my hair, had my eyebrows done. All my money goes on what I look like, if I can't eat, then I can't eat. At least I've got my foundation colour matching."
