Boo! Gary Barlow denies those X Factor judging rumours...

The X Factor

Take That star Gary Barlow has denied recent reports linking him to a judging role on The X Factor this year. The singer's camp said last night there was "no truth" to the rumours suggesting he was being lined up to replace Simon Cowell on the panel this series.

A source said: "The show’s bosses are really keen on Gary – they know he is highly knowledgeable about music, and probably more reliable than Robbie.”

However it appears as though Gary's huge European stadium tour with Take That will mean he won't be able to join the show even if he wanted to. Still, on the plus side at least that means we won't be seeing Howard Donald joining the panel anytime soon...
