X Factor 2012: Robbie Williams gushes about talented Gary Barlow

Gary Barlow (X Factor 2012)

Robbie Williams has been defending Gary Barlow on The X Factor, and taking a swipe or two at the other judges!

Gary hasn't had the best of years this series, losing three of his four acts in the early weeks.

The Take That star now only has Christopher Maloney remaining his category, and the Liverpudlian singer is the favourite to leave tonight.

Speaking to TV Magazine this weekend, Robbie said: “Nicole keeps calling him ‘Gary Borelow’ – well she’s Nicole S***singer!”

He continued: “Gary is the most talented out of the lot of them, the captain.

"He is doing a great job as head judge. He’s funnier this season than the last, which is great because he’s way more funny than me."

Robbie added: “I’ve still got my Gary Barlow crush. I love him to bits.”

Robbie also revealed that he was up for a duet with Rylan Clark with the wacky singer from Essex made the final next month.

The 'Candy' hitmaker said: "If Rylan does get to the final then maybe it will be me (singing with him). I wouldn’t mind. I’d love that, I love Rylan.

“I think Kylie Minogue might do a better job with Rylan because I think she’s dancey and poppy but if needs be I’ll turn up if they’re short.”


The X Factor 2012 continues tonight on ITV1 and ITV1HD with Sunday's results show, one more act get the axe, and there will be performances from Rhianna and Bruno Mars.
