It's no secret that Gary Barlow isn't a fan of X Factor's Rylan Clark, but it seems this year's resident novelty act is holding no grudges against him as he's only gone and had a 'tattoo' of the Take That singer.

After Gary's act Carolynne Poole was axed from the competition ahead of Rylan in Sunday's controversial elimination, Rylan has decided to ensure that Gary will back him in future - quite literally.

Rylan showed off his new back inking of Gary for Heat magazine, where he revealed his new nickname for Gary.

"Gary Bore-low. Just bore me later Gary, that’s my little saying now," he told them.

Gary will be pleased to hear that the tattoo is only temporary though.

He has openly slated Rylan since the Essex lad's first audition, and after his performance of Spandau Ballet's Gold on Saturday night's show, Gary laid into him again.

"I wanted to have some fun and I really was having fun until you started singing tonight. I was embarrassed to be sat here," he said.

However, despite all the criticism and controversy, Rylan has insisted he has no hard feelings towards the head judge.

"I have nothing but respect and admiration for @GBarlowOfficial x," he tweeted.

The full interview with Rylan will appear in next week's Heat magazine, on sale Tuesday 16 October.
