XFactor 2012: Gary Barlow says sorry to Tulisa for fag ash comment

Gary Barlow (X Factor 2012)

Gary Barlow has said sorry to Tulisa for complaining about her 'fag ash' breath!

Earlier tonight, after Chris Maloney's performance, Tulisa remarked: "I have to stop having a go at you and let your mentor take some blame for you. Gary, how many of these 80s hits are you going to let him keep destroying? He is getting the same critique every week, why not change it up for him? It’s not working."

But Chris' mentor Gary Barlow hit back: "Tulisa, I don’t know what’s offended me more, what you said or the fag breath!"

A stunned Tulisa was left speechless, before eventually replying: "Lay off the red wine, because I can smell that from here as well."

Speaking on Xtra Factor, Gary said: "Can I apologise, Tulisa, this means you have the freedom to be as personal to me for the rest of the series.

"This is live TV, Chris was getting killed up there..."

But Tulisa wasn't too keen, saying: "Don't do this on screen!

"I'm going to tell you a little story, when we were in the auditions, I asked Gart if I smelled of smoke, and he said 'I love he smell of cigarettes, it reminds me of when I used to smoke'"

Asked if she accepted his apology by Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack and Olly Murs, Tulisa said: "Not yet."

The latest results show airs tomorrow night, which will feature performances from Fun. and Robbie Williams, as well as one more act being given the boot.
