X Factor 2012: Gary Barlow 'ignoring Nicole Scherzinger' over Rylan Clark

Gary Barlow (X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Gary Barlow is reportedly ignoring Nicole Scherzinger over Rylan Clark.

It's been claimed this week that the Take That star really isn't keen on the former Pussycat Doll star after Rylan survived yet another week in the competition.

And with a third week of experiencing on his acts in the bottom two, Gary's not happy!

"Things have been very frosty between all the judges and Gary still isn't happy. He's very angry," a supposed source claims.

Speaking to Now magazine, the insider suggested: "He won't decide whether to sign up for next year until this year's done.

"He hasn't spoken to Nicole at all lately. He's angry about Rylan and the fact she even put him through to the live shows in the first place."

We reckon part of the reason why Gary is ignoring Nicole is also due to X Factor boss Simon Cowell deciding to make her head judge!

The Sun reports that Simon has been ignoring Gary and keeping in touch with Nicole Scherzinger, sending her feedback on the series.

A show insider told the newspaper: “Simon’s irritation with Gary is well known. He’s given him the Over-25s — two of whom have been binned.

“And he’s been refusing to call Gary. Instead he’s been buttering up Nicole on the phone — saying her comments are best and don’t sound scripted like Gary’s.”

Discussing next year’s tenth series recently, Gary admitted he wasn’t sure on coming back for a third year on the panel.

He said: “This show gets to me because it follows me round all week. And we are in it from now until Christmas.

“I hate it but I love it.”

The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday night with a spooky Halloween themed episode as the remaining ten contestants perform live once again.

The latest results show follows on Sunday when one more act will be given the boot.
