Take That singer Gary Barlow is the 1st judge to be confirmed to return to the next series of The X Factor.
Gary Barlow has confirmed, via Twitter, that he will be returning to the judging panel on the ITV1 talent show The X Factor. The show is due to air on ITV early Autumn.
“I’m thrilled to be back and really looking forward to working with The X Factor team again,” he said. “The fact that a superstar could just walk out on that stage is very exciting.”
Simon Cowell, who is a fellow judge and owner of the show’s production company SyCo, was delighted at Barlow’s return, and said
“It’s great to be able to confirm our first judge for this year’s show. Gary has earned his place and I’m excited to be working with him again.”
However, the news follows reports that appeared earlier today which suggested that Cowell had almost sacked Barlow after complaining that the Take That star was too boring.
Here is last year’s X Factor judging panel….So who will join Gary in the line-up this year???? 😀
All will be revealed..:)
