X Factor 2013: Gary Barlow admits he doesn't watch the show!

Gary Barlow (X Factor 2013)

X Factor 2013 judge Gary Barlow has confessed he doesn't watch the show himself.

Speaking about the upcoming tenth series, the Take That hunk conceded he didn't know what to do about the falling ratings.

In an interview with the Metro newspaper, Gary claimed the judges were at the hands of the producers, saying he doesn't even bother to watch the show back.

Asked what he would do to get viewers tuning in again, Gary told the newspaper: "It’s hard for us in the show because I don’t get home and watch it all back so I don’t know.

"So when they come and tell us the new changes I think 'Oh that’s good we should have done that before'. So, you know, we’re very much in the producers’ hands. It’s a big show."

He added: "[My family] watch it because I’m on it, you know, and they enjoy it and all the rest of it."

Gary refused to be drawn on whether or not he'd be back for a fourth series next year, instead speaking about his decision to return this summer.

"I think we talked about it in November last year. I had a good year last year and I was feeling good at the end of the show," he told the paper. "[Last year was] much better than the first year I was on. And I thought 'Yeah. Let’s go again'."

X Factor 2013 airs next month on ITV.
