On Sunday night Gary Barlow stormed off The X Factor set when co-judge Louis Walsh failed to save his act Carolynne Poole from leaving the competition.
Gary was pretty pee’d off, so we assumed that during this weekend’s live shows that there would be a lot of tension between Gaz Baz and Louis. But it looks like the boys may well have kissed and made up.
All the X Factor judges – that’s Gary, Louis, Tulisa Contostavlos and Nicole Scherzinger – as well as host Dermot O’Leary, and the man at the centre of the fixing claims producer Richard Holloway, met up for dinner in London last night.
The X Factor team were spotted at the mega swanky Arts Club in London – so we’re going to assume that Gary and Louis are on talking terms again. Unless the conversation at the table went something like this…
Gary: “Tulisa, will you ask Louis to pass the salt.”
Tulisa: [sighing] “Louis, could you pass the salt to Gary.”
Louis: “I want to save the salt… no! I want save the pepper… no wait! I don’t know. Let’s go to deadlock.”
Earlier this week Xtra Factor host Caroline Flack admitted that following the events of Sunday’s show it was very awkward on-set,
“I have never felt an atmosphere like that in the X Factor studio before ever.... it was very tense,” she said on this morning.
Pick up this week’s heat to read Caroline’s very first X Factor column – she’ll be dishing all the X Factor dirt every single week throughout the live shows.
