"No one could control me," he admitted. "Genuine fear covered [Nicole's] face."
"At one point I think Nicole even asked if there was a paramedic because she thought I was having a fit," he added. "After a while I realised I needed to assure everyone I was just so shocked and not indeed dying on the spot."
He then revealed how he proceeded to hit X Factor host Dermot O'Leary.
"Dermot received the tail-end of the storm, with me repeatedly screaming that he was out of order for having a poker face, and also with me hitting him around the legs whilst I was crouched down in the foetal position on the floor."
Rylan has since gone on to become one of the UK's most sought after presenters.
His rise to fame has been meteoric and he is now one of the biggest stars in Britain.
Not only does he have a net worth of around £5M, he also has a huge Essex mansion, and job offers pouring in all the time.
