If you saw Britney Spears in Dublin last week (or indeed, at any point on her 'Piece of Me' tour/Las Vegas residency), you'll be aware that there's a section of the show that involves something quite unusual.
During her song 'Freakshow', she invites a man on stage, puts a leather harness on him and walks him across the stage as she 'whips' him.
Usually, that man is a randomly-selected audience member who's been spotted by her 'people' on his way into the show - but at her London gig on Saturday night, the 'freak' of the freakshow was a familiar face.
Former 'X Factor' contestant and current TV host Rylan Clark-Neal was the lucky man, and Britney was apparently astonished by how 'handsome and tall' he was.
Now, however, we're feeling a bit cheated that she didn't do the same at her Dublin gig - was Marty Whelan not available, Brit?
