GARY Barlow is going to war with arch-rival Simon Cowell by launching and starring in an X Factor-style talent show.

The Take That superstar’s series is lined up by the BBC to replace The Voice, which is moving to ITV after its current Saturday night run.

His as yet unnamed multi-million pound programme will compete directly with The X Factor — on which he was a judge from 2011 to 2013.

Last night a TV source revealed: “This is Gary’s own format that will be made by the BBC entertainment team.

“If it is a success he could make hundreds of millions of pounds around the world like Cowell has with X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent.

“Cowell is going to be furious because he thinks it was X Factor that gave Gary the experience working on a show like this. Now he’s gone and set up a direct rival.

“He’s always been paranoid about Gary trying to set up a huge entertainment company incorporating music and TV, which seems to be happening.”

The Beeb considered more than 200 ideas for new shows.

Sources close to Gary said he was “very excited” about the project — but still planned to keep his music commitments, including being a full-time member of Take That.

Tbh, if Gary doesn't quit making music, this news makes me extremely happy, cause I'm having serious Barlow withdrawal symptoms right now tongue.gif

If this goes big, he might be able to use it to break into America. However, it will be hard to create a show as successful as the Voice or X-Factor.

At this point, any show would be more successful than The X Factor tongue.gif

I imagine Gary wants to discover singer-songwriters. That's what I hope the show is about. It would be pointless to have another karaoke style show on tv. People are sick of the XF and The Voice.

Just what we need for a Saturday night - another talent-free talent show! And no - it isn't my dislike of Barlow that makes me say that - I just can't stand these shows - seriously they should have consigned these kind of things to the bin after Opportunity Knocks and New Faces - they were shite then!

Great publicity for Gary though! And probably Cowell too! All news is good news - even if the product is pants!

I look forward to discovering the format. It would be wonderful if this comes out very successful.

I agree with you, Kath. I can't stand these shows either - I never look at X Factor or The Voice, not even here in Romania, where the format is relatively new and successful.
My hope is that Gary comes up with something new and different. His record label did go bankrupt after all because he was genuinely interested in investing in real talent, unlike Cowell who drops an artist when the money isn't satisfactory.

Oh dear. I hate these kinds of shows too. They are very manufactured and lack any real talent.

According to The Sun, this talent show will be all about finding the stars for a Take That musical! So along the lines of the Andrew Lloyd Webber shows.
Will be great publicity for the show if true!

This sounds like a great idea and would be excellent exposure for the show and their back catalogue.

Yes, it is a great idea! Can't wait, but I probably won't be able to see it in the states.

Simon Cowell isn't too happy with Gary's new talent show...

Can Cowell be more arrogant and self-absorbed? I live for the day when someone will throw eggs at him again. Well, I'd replace eggs with something else, but I'm trying to be a lady angel.gif

Simon appears to like nothing he is not involved in himself.
