X Factor 2011: Gary Barlow doing the show for his children!

Gary Barlow 2011

New X Factor judge Gary Barlow has revealed he's only take part in the show his kids! The Take That front man told The Sun how he wanted to get his children involved in his career, which he has struggled to do as a song-writer and one-fifth of Take That.

He said: "The reason I did The X Factor is because my kids love it and it's so seldom your kids engage with what you're doing work-wise.

"My son sits playing Nintendo all the way through my concerts. They're not mad about what I do — but being a judge on The X Factor, they couldn't believe it.

"They were absolutely made up."

Meanwhile Gary confessed to being scared of Kelly Rowland and her acts!

"I know that the girls are a brilliant category. We've got to work on a plan of eliminating someone," he admitted. "I'm most worried about the girls' category. I think it's bloody strong — but we'll take them."

But Gary insisted the pair did get on, and almost always agreed with one another. "What I say, Kelly usually agrees with and what she says, I usually agree with. Then at the other side is the younger and the oldest.

"They get on great — it's quite amusing, actually. Louis is loving it."

The X Factor continues tomorrow night on ITV1.
