The Daily Mirror reports that Gary Barlow will not be returning to judge X Factor UK next season, paving the way for the return of Simon Cowell.
Gary Barlow is quitting X Factor – paving the way for a dramatic return by show supremo Simon Cowell.
After a series of on and off-air spats, the Take That star has privately agreed with ITV1 that he will not return for a third series.
He will see out the current contest but plans to spend more time with his family as well as focussing on his band commitments.
Stung by dwindling ratings, Cowell, 51, is said to be lining himself up for a widely hyped comeback as the show’s Judge Dread.
A source said: “It’s time for a shake-up. While Gary has never committed to another series, he was willing to listen to offers if this one went well.
“However, he was given the least desirable category – the Overs – and three of his four acts have already been eliminated.
“He feels his integrity has been compromised and the show has lost its credibility.
Reportedly, Simon will fly between California and London to judge both competitions, similar to the schedule DWTS judges Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman, who also simultaneously judge Strictly Come Dancing in the UK. X Factor UK airs on Saturday and Sunday. Judging both competitions is exhausting, but doable.
If this report is true, I’ll be bummed. I like Gary. Frankly, who wants a double dose of Simon Cowell? Not me.
