Simon: 'Gary may not return to 'X Factor''

Wednesday January 25, 2012

Simon Cowell has admitted Gary Barlow may not return to the judging panel on the next series of The X Factor.

Take That plan to release a new album and Simon hinted that Gary may be too busy promoting that to audition new music hopefuls on the ITV talent show.

Simon told The Sun: "This show takes over your life, it is not a two day a week show."

"I always thought that with Gary he would have the Take That commitment in 2012.

"But there has to be a certain amount of unpredictability with this show, it is what keeps people interested."

The music mogul has also said there could a reshuffle and hinted he may even return himself.

Simon said: "We have got to look at everyone, the whole show. I don't know if I will keep the panel the same. I haven't decided yet.
