David Walliams couldn't contain his excitement when he met one of his "idols" - X Factor reject Rylan Clark.

The funnyman and the axed talent show wannabe came face-to-face on Daybreak, where Rylan is filling in as a showbiz reporter.

"This is the best moment of my life," David told the Essex performer.

Rylan said: "Everyone thinks we're the same person."

Hugging Rylan, Little Britain star David replied: "People thought I was playing him in The X Factor... I'm going to play you in a movie of your life."

Rylan joked: "I think you should. Although there's not really a lot gone on to be fair."

David later tweeted a photo of the pair hugging, with the caption: "My life is now complete."

And in reply to a tweet joking that he looked "the campest person there", David teased: "Rylan is actually very butch in real life. He has a wife and kids."

Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
