It has been reported that furious X Factor judge Gary Barlow has threatened to quit the show amid the backlash of the Sunday night fix row. Gary has stated that if anything like it should happen in any of the future shows, then he would be forced to walk out on the show.
The row came during Sunday nights sing off, which saw one of the X Factor producers talking to Louis Walsh during the performance of Carolynne Poole, who was then voted off of the show by Walsh, after the Irish judge took the decision to a deadlock.
People have since been claiming that the whole process was a fix and that Louis was told to vote that way by the producers to keep over dramatic Rylan Clark on the show. An X Factor insider explained, “Gary is fiercely proud of his reputation and signed up for the show because he wanted to nurture genuine talent.”
“The reason he wanted to be on it was to put a stop to these tricks and to stop insulting the artists and viewers. [Gary's] issued an ultimatum. If this ever happens again, he is off. No questions asked.”
The X Factor continues on ITV this weekend.
