FLAMBOYANT X Factor finalist Rylan Clark celebrated the first birthday of his godson Beaux – the son of 2 Shoes star Charley Bird.

Rylan, from Stanford-le-Hope, who came fifth in the ITV1 talent show, went to Partyman World in Basildon to celebrate with Charley, her family and Beaux’s godmother and his mum’s bandmate Lucy Texeira.

Rylan said: “I love coming home and with my schedule travelling round the country it was hard to get back, but I wanted to ensure I made the effort as it’s a special day.”
