An insider told The People
, "Gary wants to go back and Simon wants him but he has got a lot on this summer, namely the Jubilee concert which is taking up a lot of his time. This and other projects he is working on mean that unless the audition schedule changes, Gary won't be an X Factor
judge for this year's show.
The insider added, “It will be a huge blow for Simon. He loved the X Factor line-up last year and he hopes that he will be able to keep it the same. It is going to take a lot of juggling around though."
Simon Cowell has had his work cut out this year, replacing the outgoing judges and host of The X Factor USA and now it seems that he may have to find a replacement for Gary Barlow on the UK version of the show.
Who would you like to see replace Gary Barlow as a judge on The X Factor?
