Gary Barlow NOT Officially Signed For UK X Factor!

Not so fast!

Although Simon Cowell dropped quite the bomb yesterday when he confirmed that Gary Barlow would be taking over for him on the judges panel of the UK X Factor while he himself moves onto the US version with Cheryl Cole, the reality competition bosses have claimed that this is NOT true, and that the Take That singer has yet to sign a contract!

But let's be real here: just like we knew about Paula and Chezza before the official announcement, we're sure Barlow will be picked up officially in a day or two! He's a pretty solid fit for the show!

We guess Simon just likes to spoil the surprise by jumping the gun on the announcement! LOLz!

What do U think? Do U want to see Gary join X Factor??

Who Will Be Replacing Simon And Chezza On The UK X Factor?

Wow! Not bad replacements, considering the show will be losing TWO huge assets!

Now that Cheryl Cole and Simon Cowell have both left the UK X Factor in order to participate in the judges panel on the US edition, there has been just as much strife across the pond behind the scenes of the reality competition, as producers have scrambled to find two new panelists that can successfully fill the void left by the reality honcho and the former Girls Aloud singer!

However, today, Cowell announced that none other than Take That singer Gary Barlow was in advanced negotiations to take his spot, while reports surfaced that Strictly Come Dancing judge Alesha Dixon would fill Chezza's!

Cowell revealed:

"Gary Barlow is the first person confirmed."

And a source close to Dixon explains:

'He [Cowell] has spent weeks handpicking the right people - he's a perfectionist who changes his mind by the hour. There have been heated debates and disagreements almost every day between Cowell, ITV and senior executives over who they need to sign up to give it some stardust. Alesha is ecstatic. She never thought in a million years that she would be asked. But talks have been on for weeks and have been going well. She has had meeting with ­producers and realises it’s her dream job – an offer she can’t refuse. She’d be sad to turn her back on Strictly, but X Factor is in a completely ­different league.'

Meanwhile, an X Factor spokesperson says:

‘The panel for the UK will be announced in due course.'

Wow! Well - if this pans out the way it did stateside, then we think we pretty much have our new judges!

Here's hoping BOTH new teams will have as much success as the former!

Our fingers are crossed!

What do U think?? Who do you want to see take over for Simon and Chezza??

Robbie Williams And Duchess Fergie Are Besties!

This is too cute! Seriously, what a sweet guy!

Robbie Williams was reported to have become good friends with Duchess Sarah Ferguson when they met on holiday in the Caribbean back in January, and apparently, the two have gotten so close that the Take That singer and the Duchess' daughter, Princess Beatrice, are even quite close now, and visits he and his wife Ayda Field at their Beverly Hills home regularly!

A source reveals:

"Robbie gets on really well with Beatrice. He treats her like a little sister and looks after her. It's really sweet. A few of Robbie's football pals were round the other week and Fergie was just wandering about in her robe. She came and said hello and was really charming. Robbie likes having Fergie around and said she could stay as long as she liked."

So nice!

We're so glad that he can be such a positive role model in Beatrice's life, and that Fergie has such a reliable friend right now!

Keep it up, you guys!
