Gary Barlow: £1.5m? I’ll Take That


Published: Today

TAKE That star Gary Barlow will trouser a whopping £1.5million to become a judge on the X Factor.

The singer's deal is THREE times the offer on the table for N-Dubz star Tulisa.

Ready to sign up for X Factor ... Tulisa
ITV chiefs stumped up the wedge in a bid to convince Gary to replace X Factor guru Simon Cowell - who has moved with Cheryl Cole to launch his US version.

Aussie star Dannii Minogue will also not return.

Gary's deal will see him become the show's top earner alongside veteran Louis Walsh, 58, who negotiated a similar deal.

Bosses moved heaven and earth to tempt Gary, 40, after he initially resisted. They have already moved the auditions to fit in around his Take That tour schedule.

Simon revealed he had finally got his way last week, telling US reporters: "Gary Barlow is the first person confirmed." A show source said: "Gary is not exactly a D-list celebrity so hiring him comes with a cost.

"With Cheryl and Simon out of the picture there was some decent cash to hire big names.

"But it's not about the money for him - he is genuinely interested in bringing on new talent."

A contract worth around £500,000 is due to be tabled this week for Tulisa, 22. Pals say she is eager to sign.

One said: "This is a dream come true for Tulisa. This will catapult her to a household name.

"She is being talked about as the new Cheryl."

Simon is still trying to tempt Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland, 30.

Ex-judge Sharon Osbourne, 58, is also rumoured to be keen.
