The English singer, 32, said he would blame the presenter for not being able to sing the next day if he distracted him with a night out on the tiles.
It comes after earlier this week Rylan, 33, joked that he may partially be to blame for the UK’s poor Eurovision results in recent years, admitting he’s been given a telling-off by bosses for taking the UK hopefuls on a big night out before the final.
Plan: The UK’s Eurovision entry Sam Ryder has promised that he won’t go on a boozy night out with Rylan Clark before final of the singing contest on Saturday
But Sam has defiantly told The Sun of his plans to be well behaved: ‘I told him it’s not happening. Otherwise it will be Rylan’s fault when I can’t sing.
‘I know it might sound boring but there are a lot of fans in the UK and we all want to do the best job we possibly can.’
He said: ‘It is tradition that I always take the British act out, normally on the Wednesday or the Thursday, and then the head of delegation always has a go at me because I take them out’.

Before adding: ‘But I will make sure Sam is all right by Saturday night.’
Rylan has been involved with Eurovision since 2018 when he took over from Mel Giedroyc as co-commented of the competition’s semi final alongside Scott Mills.
Tiktok superstar Sam hopes to change the UK’s fortunes in the competition after coming last in both 2019 and 2021, with the 2020 concert cancelled due to COVID.
His catchy tune Spaceman is tipped to do well in the final with Rylan revealing he has high hopes for it’s success.

He said: ‘I know full well we will be on the left-hand side of the leader board this year. How high up, I don’t know, but I’ve every faith in Sam.’
Last year’s Eurovision entry James Newman placed bottom of the leaderboard with zero points with 2019’s entry Michael Rice also coming last.
But Sam when speaking to Radio 1’s Greg James, Sam, who has 12 million TikTok followers revealed he won’t let nerves get in his way of victory.
‘I don’t want to let the stigma or fear of coming at a certain place in a table stop me from doing something and being a part of something that I enjoy so much.’
Oh no: Last year the UK was awarded a cataclysmic ‘Nul points’ when James Newman performed his tune Embers in Rotterdam
Sam revealed that he aims to make the most of his opportunity and ‘do the best job’ possible.
He added: ‘As long as I can go to Eurovision and know in my heart of hearts I’m going to do the best job I can then everything else is out of my control.’
The singer-songwriter described his track as ‘a little song about being an astronaut’ and it contains the lyrics: ‘I searched around the universe, been down some black holes, there’s nothing but space, man, and I want to go home’.
Fans of the international competition seemed optimistic when rumours began to swirl of Sam’s involvement.
‘Stumbled across @SamRyderMusic looking at uk eurovision posts and glad I did wow his voice is stunning!’ one enthused tweet read.
A second fan referred to Sam’s ‘potential’, but voiced their preference for another track called Move.
The incredible response to his videos saw him named as the most viewed UK artist on TikTok in 2020.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 live final is on Saturday 14 May, 8pm BBC One.
