X Factor's Gary Barlow has said he's in "love" with Louis Walsh... although he seems to have a thing for new judge Nicole!

Speaking to the official ITV1 website, Take That star Gary gushed: “I think me and Louis are totally in love this year, I think all of the arguing of last year is far behind us.”

And he confessed that he was loving new judge Nicole and her "British" sense of humour.

“Nicole is perfect, she’s really settled in well. She has a good sense of humour, quite a British sense of humour. She’s interesting," he told the website.

The hunky singer added: “I think the big thing for me this year for The X Factor is the talent. The talent seems to have gone into the stratosphere!”

Meanwhile Louis seems to have been taken by new judge [tag]Nicole Scherzinger[/tag].

The Irish music mogul was seen making Tulisa jealous by getting close to Nicole backstage.

Nicole said: "Me an Louis have a very special relationship. Louis loves me more and Tulisa knows that! He looks so handsome..."

Tulisa joked: "Louis has a special something that makes ladies want him... I think it's the new hair!"

The X Factor airs Saturday nights on ITV1.
