Gary Barlow has never been shy about voicing his opinion on “The X Factor” UK, but even if he did choose to be silent following the exit of all three of his team members while his archnemesis Rylan Clark was still in the competition, it would still be written all over his face just how unhappy he is in the competition. We imagine that when the Take That star signed up for the show, he did so under the belief that it would be about singing first and foremost rather than someone wearing colorful costumes and making it far based on their personality. However, that hasn’t been quite the case.
Now,a source claims to the Daily Mirror that Barlow may no longer be interested in returning to the ITV series for a third season, as he opts to place his focus more on his family and his own music career rather than stressing out over whether or not his acts are prepared. As a result of this, sources also claim that Simon Cowell could be taking his place, and would travel back and forth between American and Britain much like Bruno Tonioli and Len Goodman do with “Dancing with the Stars” and “Strictly Come Dancing.”
Thus far, Simon and Gary have stayed silent about the rumors, and nothing will probably be confirmed until the spring of next year, anyway. The one concern we have about this gossip is that judging on “The X Factor” and the aforementioned dance competition are rather different; Goodman and Tonioli have no input in rehearsals, whereas Cowell helps his acts with every element of their performance. It would be an enormous weight on his shoulders along with his other duties, but he needs to find a way to improve on the sluggish “X Factor” UK ratings.
