Gary Barlow Set To Return To The X Factor, Vows He's 'Looking Forward' To Mentor Acts


Gary Barlow has vowed to make a return to the X Factor by revealing that he's "looking forward" to mentoring his acts through judges houses and the live finals.

The judge, who pulled out of the X Factor press launch yesterday, has been spending time with his wife, Dawn following their tragic loss of their daughter Poppy who was stillborn.

Revelaing his plans to watch the first episode of the ninth series of the show, at home with his family, the PA reports Gary saying:

"Thanks for all the support. I'll be watching the show at home on Saturday with my family and I know you're going to love it.

"The talent is amazing this year and I'm looking forward to working with and mentoring my acts at judges homes and on the live shows."

It is believed that the plan to film Gary's judges house segment in Majorca has now been axed due to the judge's personal circumstances. According to The Sun, an insider said:

"The Majorca plan has been ditched. Gary is in no fit state to be out of the country. Everyone is completely behind whatever he wants to do. He has said that he will stick to the planned September 10 and 11 dates but now we are looking for a suitable venue near London.”

We can't wait to see Gary baxk on the X Factor!
