Gary Barlow pledges to bring 'credibility' to The X Factor
New X Factor head judge, Take That's Gary Barlow has pledged to bring the show his brand of 'credibility'.
But arguments have apparently already begun over the Barlow's mission to bring his own style of musical conservatism to the show.
"The TV companies are always going to push for the ridiculous acts to get through, but I’m hoping we can resist so many this year. I know it’s Saturday night entertainment and people want something to love to hate and to laugh at. We’ll see if it's possible [to axe the oddballs]. I'll let you know."
"When I was watching - and I have a ten and an eight-year-old watching it - the Christina Aguilera stuff was too much for me."
