X Factor: Gary Barlow under fire for snubbing Kingsland Road


Former X Factor judge Gary Barlow has been criticised by Kingsland Road for not keeping in touch with the boys.

The boys – Josh Zaré, Joe ‘Connor’ Conaboy, JJ Thompson, Matt Cahill, and Jay Scott – have complained that they've been snubbed by the Take That star after finishing the show last year.

The group were kicked out of the live shows last November, with the band's Josh blaming Nicole Scherzinger's boobs.

He said: “Nicole has a great cleavage. It was distracting. That is why we were in the bottom two.”

Speaking to Gay Times this week, JJ revealed since then the group have yet to hear a word from Take Gary Barlow.

"We haven’t spoken to him since before we left," he said in an interview this week.

Josh added: "He always said we reminded him of Take That and wanted to help us, and we had a really good relationship with him and we felt like he was one of the band.

"I thought we’d have heard from him a bit more after."
