Rylan Clark was stunned as he was able to tick seeing the Northern Lights off his bucket list – from his own mansion in Essex.

Traditionally, many people make the trip to Iceland in an attempt to see the incredible light phenomenon, however, the Aurora Borealis lit up the skies in some parts of Britain on Sunday and Monday night, with some lucky viewers seeing gorgeous pinks and greens up above.

Rylan, 34, who has enjoyed presenting stints on shows such as This Morning and Big Brother's Bit on the Side, couldn't contain his excitement as he took to Twitter to post a snap of his view from his home.

He posted a rather blurry picture of a pink, green and blue sky, as he wrote: "Ok I can’t believe I’m saying this but my entire life I’ve wanted to see the northern lights…. Not the best pic but this is from my ACTUAL house in ESSEX 5 mins ago. I think I’ve caught it?!?"

Rylan then posted four more snaps of the light show that he saw from his house as he was clearly mesmerised by the display.

An astrologer commented: "Awesome work… amazing to think the charged particles that caused that wee generated inside the sun maybe 400,000 yrs ago, then traveled toward Earth at 400 km/sec to make the gas in the atmosphere glow!."

Rylan replied: "It’s crazy. I’m obsessed."

One of Rylan's followers – who may live near him in Essex – thanked him, as the star had inspired them to go out and have a look.

They wrote: "Thank you! We went out because of you and saw them too."

Another of Rylan's followers apparently hadn't seen anything, as they wrote: "That’s incredible. Very jealous! Very cloudy and wet here in Yorkshire!"

A Rylan fan from Northamptonshire also didn't get lucky, as they wrote: "Jealous. Too cloudy in Northamptonshire. Awesome photos."

Rylan also took to Instagram to share some snaps, as he captioned his post: "Never thought I’d be able to say this, but I THINK I just captured the northern lights from my house in ESSEX.

"This is not a drill. Not the greatest pic, brought the shadow down slightly to show it more. I can’t believe it x."

Rylan has become a much-loved celebrity in the UK since he burst onto our screens on The X Factor in 2012, when he got through to the live shows and finished in fifth place.

But it appeared that his future lay in TV, as he went on to win Celebrity Big Brother a year after his stint on the X Factor, before landing a number of lucrative presenting roles, such as the one on ITV's This Morning.
