X Factor judge Gary Barlow was refused to fly further than Europe for judges' houses, with worries that he'll miss the birth of his new daughter!

Gary and wife Dawn are expecting their fourth child to be born later this year, but the timing clashes with the filming of the judges' houses stage of the competition.

And it's meant that Gary has refused to jet out to the US with his hopefuls, telling show bosses he'll only go as far as Europe.

“Gary’s daughter is due to arrive at exactly the same time the judges’ houses are set to be filmed," a source said today.

Speaking to The Sun, the supposed insider explained: “Gary is really torn — he wants to be with his acts but he knows he can’t miss his daughter’s birth.

“You could see Gary making a hospital dash on the show. This really is reality TV.”
