X Factor 2013 video: Gary Barlow tells us: 'Nicole is going down!'

A competitive Gary Barlow has declared he's out to win The X Factor 2013 this year.

It's Gary's third series on the panel, but he's yet to win, but this year he's going all out to be champion.

He told us on the red carpet of this year's auditions in Wembley:

Meanwhile, Gary explained that a return to the judges' rooms proved a good move.

It was the first time that Gary had been on the panel for the more intimate auditions, and he explained: "They are completely different, they are very exposing, I think the acts are more nervous than they would be in front of a big audience.”

The Take That hunk added: “I find smaller audiences more daunting than big ones and I think it’s tested a lot of our acts.

"I think today will be a test also, because we’ll really see them now in front of 4,000 people and these audiences, they are not by any means helpful. If the acts aren’t good and they don’t like them, they tell them straight away.”

The X Factor 2013 auditions take place all this week at Wembley Arena.

The show returns to ITV next month.
