X Factor 2012: Gary Barlow annoys producers with solo tour

Gary Barlow (X Factor 2012)

X Factor judge Gary Barlow has apparently annoyed the show's producers with his solo tour.

The Take That announced a range of solo performances earlier this year at venues across the country from this winter through to the new year.

But bosses aren't happy that it could mean that Gary will be spending time away from the show and his acts, assuming of course he still has some!

Gary has already lost two acts and had a third in the bottom two, although last night was the first time since the live shows started that Gary didn't have an act in danger.

A source revealed: "Gary is set to tour the UK from 13 November to 8 January and there is a worry that he won't be able to give his acts the attention they need.

"It's not exactly going to help relations between him and Simon."

A spokesperson played down the claims however, insisting: "We work with the judges' teams to schedule around any commitments they have."

The latest results show follows on Sunday evening, which will feature performances from Rita Ora and No Doubt, as well as one more act being given the boot.
