X Factor 2012 judges: Gary Barlow 'feels betrayed' by Louis Walsh

Gary Barlow (The X Factor 2012)

X Factor 2012 judge Gary Barlow reportedly feels "betrayed" by Louis Walsh over Sunday's results show.

The first live results at the weekend saw Gary's Carolynne Poole and Nicole's Rylan Clark in the bottom two, with Louis deciding to send the result to deadlock, after first opting to save Carolynne.

It meant that Carolynne left the show, and saw Gary storming off the panel.

According to The Sun, Gary is still refusing to talk to Louis for changing his decision.

A source close to the Take That star told the newspaper today: “Before the live shows, Gary was talking all week about the vocal talent this year and how it was going to be all about the singing on the show.

“Then on the first weekend his act Carolynne was kicked off and tone-deaf Rylan survived. He says he feels betrayed by Louis and the show.

“He is very frustrated which is not a good sign so early on in the series.

"Gary is blanking Louis and has also ignored a number of phone calls from production staff.”

Over 2,500 have complained to TV watchdog Ofcom over the result, with many claiming that Louis had been told to take the vote to deadlock after he was spotted talking to producers during Carolynne's sing off performane.

A source added to the newspaper this morning: “We like the show being talked about and having attention, but fix allegations are never good for The X Factor.

“It is important we get the show back on track this week so that people talk about it for the right reasons.”

The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday night on ITV1, with the results show following on Sunday night with performances from Taylor Swift and Rebecca Ferguson.
