Singing Private Ryan...

Since we are talking about The X Factor, here is one more sweet eye candy for you. Ryan Idzi, the first ever serviceman to enter The X Factor, impressed judges, and is now off to the X Factor bootcamp.

The 22-year-old from south Wales is an armoured vehicle driver with the 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards, and had recently returned from a seven-month tour of duty in southern Iraq before trying out for this year's show.

On his audition, Ryan performed 'Lean On Me' for the judges and one, Dannii Minogue, told him, "You are gorgeous, girls will fall over and melt when they see you."

He said that singing had helped him through some difficult times in Iraq. "The second time I was in Iraq the wagon in front of me was hit by a bomb and I lost two friends," he said. "It messes you up a bit and it did scar me, and the nightmares will never go away. That's why now I grab every opportunity I can and pursue my dreams."

To tell the truth, I think Ryan sang OK but there's no doubt that this Welsh boy has something about him which could mean he'll do well in this year's competition. Oops, did I not mention his gorgeous eyes and sexy smile? And he's in uniform!

He has a beautiful Welsh voice, and heart. I hope that his war experiences leave him with the toughness he'll need to keep competing. There are a lot of beautiful voices in handsome Welshmen. I wish him the best.
