Leona Lewis admits soft spot for Gary Barlow

Leona Lewis has admitted that she has a soft spot for Gary Barlow.

The 'Bleeding Love' singer, who recently joined the X-Factor judging panel at one of the audition rounds, told the show’s official website that she was pleased to team up with the Take That star again:

“I have such a soft spot for Gary. I got on the best with him. He’s such an astounding songwriter and person. I’ll never forget performing with him as a contestant on The X Factor – it was truly magical.”

The 27-year-old, who this week debuted the video to her new single, 'Trouble,' also went on to describe the experience of being a judge on the series that launched her career:

“Initially, it felt really alien to be sat behind that desk. I quickly got used to it. The judges were lovely. Tulisa was really friendly and it was great to hang out with Louis again.

“I think I’m the most sensitive judge. I’m honest but also emphatic. I’ve been in the contestants’ positions so I don’t like to be brutal. I take a softly-softly approach.”
