With rumours that the former X Factor contestant could be taking up camp on the Essex reality show, Mario said: "If he comes on Monday's live show, that's fine because it's all for charity, but if he comes on TOWIE as a main character, I'm leaving. We hate him. He's a douche-bag."
Kirk agreed and said: "I've met Rylan before and he's actually a really nice boy but when people think of Essex they just think of the abbreviation, the 'Shut-up', the 'Oh my god' - that was all Amy Childs and we don't want that."
Mario said: "We've moved away from that. I don't think he'd benefit the show. Bobby and Joey said they'd leave as well."

Later on, Digital Spy talked to James Argent, Joey Essex and Billie Faiers.
Arg said: "I would love to see Rylan on TOWIE - not only that, if Mario and Kirk say they'll leave if that happens, I'm telling you now that's bulls**t, because they wouldn't!"

Billie Faiers added: "Bobby moaned the other day about it and said he was the only gay in the village."
The live episode coming up on Monday (December 3) sees them all taking part in a charity talent show, which features Joey Essex in a boyband, James 'Arg' Argent singing and dancing, and a host of other questionable talents.
