So, another week on The X Factor, and another week of Rylan Clark parading around the streets of London like a maniac. This week, the singer turned 24 and chose to celebrate by throwing a swanky Halloween-themed bash. We say swanky, everyone just donned terrible costumes and turned up at the Mahiki nightclub.

Ever the showman, Rylan strutted into the hotspot dressed as a sort of weird American football player. His pal, Lucy Spraggan looked even more ridiculous as a giant pumpkin. Heartthrobs Union J were presumably going for the nurse’s uniform look but ended up resembling a set of unemployed Ghostbusters.

There wasn’t much creativity elsewhere, with boy-band District 3 wearing a set of dismal monster outfits, James Arthur rocking a standard cape, and Jahmene Douglas wearing, er, jeans and a gilet. Spooky.

Nevertheless, the lack of effort put into the outfits was made up for on the dance-floor, with Rylan and company partying till the early hours of the morning. As you may have guessed, this week’s X Factor show will be Halloween themed, with Clark telling ITN, “I’ve got a big performance on Saturday. I’m really worried…This week is completely unreal. It’s my most nerve wracking performance I’ve done so far, it’s very dangerous.”
