Gary Barlow has dismissed press reports that suggest a rift between him and fellow X Factor judge Louis Walsh.
The Take That star was quick to dismiss the rumours that he won’t be returning to the show next year if Louis stays and revealed his love for the Irish judge instead.
Speaking to Olly Murs and Caroline Flack on tonight’s Xtra Factor, outspoken Gary said: “I wouldn’t come back if Louis wasn’t here.”
Gary’s act Marcus Collins made it to tonight’s live X Factor final and narrowly missed out on this year’s crown after being beaten by girl group Little Mix, but Gary sees big things in Marcus’ future and said of the Liverpudlian lad:
“I’m going to make sure he gets the right label, the right deal, the right songwriters, the right album. I want to make sure this lad is really taken care of, because he has been a pleasure to work with.”
All four X Factor judges made predictions at the start of the live shows as to who they thought was going to win, and they all got it completely wrong!
Gary thought Frankie Cocozza was going to win, Kelly predicted Janet Devlin, Tulisa went for Nu Vibe while Louis thought the final two would be Janet and Frankie.
