Gary Barlow to create rival X Factor show and Simon is NOT impressed

While many of us reckon that the X Factor is on it's last legs, former judge on the popular ITV show Gary Barlow has decided to try his hand at television talent competitions. 

After being a popular mentor on the X Factor, the Take That frontman has decided to create his own show on rival station the BBC. 

The show is scheduled to take the place of the Voice on the British state broadcaster after it sold it's red chairs to ITV in a multi-million euro deal at the end of last year.

"This is Gary’s own format that will be made by the BBC entertainment team," a source told the Sun. 

“If it is a success he could make hundreds of millions of pounds around the world like Cowell has with X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent."

While this all sounds very exciting and we can't wait to see Gazza back on our screens, it seems one music mogul is not impressed with the whole situation. 

"Cowell is going to be furious because he thinks it was X Factor that gave Gary the experience working on a show like this. Now he’s gone and set up a direct rival.

"He’s always been paranoid about Gary trying to set up a huge entertainment company incorporating music and TV, which seems to be happening."

Gary's show is said to replace the Voice this time next year.
