Ahead of the X Factor Final tonight, this weekend, Gary Barlow has admitted that he isn’t enjoying the live shows as much as he thought he would, as Paddy Power announce free bets on the winner of the competition. Will it be Little Mix or Marcus?
The Take That singer is still passionate about making sure his one remaining act Marcus Collins wins the competition, but admits that he will be relieved when it is all over for this year.
Paddy Power have been in touch to tell us they will throw in free bets to all SqueakyBumTime visitors to spend on the X Factor live final tonight! Claim your exclusive £100 free bet with Paddy Power here!
The judge said: “I’ve got to get my head around it, learn to enjoy it. It’s so intense. All those people out there watching every move you make and analysing it and talking to their friends about it and tweeting and gossiping.”
“I think at this point the reason I’m not ¬particularly enjoying it is I don’t feel I’m in control of it. Maybe I’ll never feel like that. It’s a totally bloody new thing for me.”
Speaking about X Factor gossip, a source close to the show has suggested that Gary might not return to the judging panel next year.
The source revealed: “He wants to spend more time with his family next year, there could be some more work with Take That, and so The X Factor is not looking like it is his priority.”
Gary will still be around this weekend as sthe show reaches its climax after last nights elimination, wher Amelia said goodbye, leaving Marcus Collins and Little Mix to fight it out to be the 2011 winner.
Each will be performing two songs again, so there is plenty of time for the semi-finalists to impress the judges and more importantly the voting public.
Overall, the pressure is really on the two acts left, and its sure to be an exhilerating end to this years X Factor competition.
The X Factor is on ITV One from 8pm on Saturday evening.
