Confirmed: Gary Barlow returning to The X Factor
First it was Louis Walsh who confirmed his place back on The X Factor panel, and now it's Gary Barlow.
In a statement ITV and the producers of the show confirmed the news and Gary himself has said: "I'm thrilled to be back and really looking forward to working with The X Factor team again. The fact that a superstar could just walk out on that stage is very exciting."
Music mogul Simon Cowell also seems to be chuffed, saying: "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."
This follows reports today that Gary reportedly came very close to being fired by Simon last year.
Journalist Tom Bower reveals in his unauthorised biography of Simon Cowell, which is named Sweet Revenge: The Intimate Life Of Simon Cowell, that Simon found Gary to be 'too scripted' and 'boring' in early episodes of the show.
Simon responded to the reports surrounding the book on Twitter and tweeted saying; "This book is not written by me. It is unauthorised. The writer is Tom Bower."
We're just happy that Gary Barlow will be back this year! Welcome back Gary!
