Gary Barlow to Leave X Factor UK

The Sun Reports that Gary Barlow will leave the X Factor UK at the end of this season to concentrate on his music career.

X FACTOR judge Gary Barlow is quitting to relaunch Take That — paving the way for Simon Cowell to return to the hit show he created. Singer Gary, 42, has told X Factor bosses he will be too busy to do the series again next year as he will be working on a new Take That album and tour.

Gary signed a £1.5million deal to continue as X Factor head judge after the group’s new album was delayed.

But he has now started working on the record with other band members, and managers are making plans for a major European tour in 2014 and 2015.

Gary has been a judge on the show for the last 3 years.
