We get the feeling X Factor fellas Gary Barlow and Simon Cowell aren’t exactly bosom buddies. But things are about to get a whole lot more awkward between the two of them.
After Simon slated the Take That star in his tell-all book, Gary has now decided to give him a piece of his mind in his own biography.
Gary was blasted by the music mogul in Tom Bower’s unofficial book Sweet Revenge, in which Simon said he was “too scripted” and should be sacked.
And in the new paperback edition of the book, even more narky remarks were reported, including Simon’s anger over Gary’s OBE.
Gary, 41, has recently described Simon’s remarks as “tittle tattle” but promises to get his own back on his boss.
He said: “Wait until my book comes out! It will be bloody beautiful. I’ll get the lot of them.”
Gary added: “I've had plenty of abuse in the past 22 years. I’m so used to having people saying things about me — then when I actually meet them it turns out they’ve never said the things. I take it all with a pinch of salt.
“Gossip and tittle tattle, I’ve got no time for that.”
Simon’s thoughts on The X Factor
Gary added that Simon had not said anything negative to his face, but gives his thoughts on The X Factor show every week.
He said: “We get messages every couple of weeks. He gets the show sent to him. He approves it.
“I don’t get advice. We get feedback on the shows just saying, ‘We love the pace of the show’ or whatever.
“He’s the executive producer on the show so he makes changes to the edits but yes, we’ve had good feedback.”
