The flamboyant performer is filling in for one week while Richard Arnold takes a break after taking part in Strictly Come Dancing.
Rylan managed to make it to week eight in the X Factor competition, despite judge Gary Barlow insisting he couldn't sing.
The 24-year-old said: "I can't believe it! I only left X Factor a week ago and now I'm joining Lorraine and Aled on the Daybreak sofa!
"I'm a massive fan of the show and it's going to be so much fun sharing all the showbiz news and gossip with the nation each morning.
"I'm looking forward to keeping Richard's seat warm while he's swanning off on holiday, but I won't be asking for any dancing tips just yet!"
