Take That legend Gary Barlow has revealed that he is very disappointed at missing out on the chance to work alongside Geordie songstress Cheryl Cole. Gary is one of this year’s judges on The X Factor UK, which Cheryl left to take part in the US version. Cheryl has since been sacked and rumours surfaced that she would return to the UK show.
Cheryl has since rejected the chance to rejoin The X Factor UK and executives even claim that she wasn’t even offered a return. Barlow will instead be judging alongside N’Dubz star Tulisa Contostavlos and former Destiny’s Child singer Kelly Rowland, as well as regular judge Louis Walsh.
Gary said, "I sent Cheryl some texts just saying, 'Sending support'. She's a good friend of mine. I'm disappointed she's gone. The other two girls are going to be great. I love Tulisa - I've worked with N-Dubz before and I love working with them. She's great and is going to bring a whole new dimension to the show."
