Gary Barlow has had a difficult last week, with the death of new born daughter Poppy over shadowing plans for the singer to appear at the Olympic closing ceremony.

Yet the brave star plans to ensure that as a judge on The X Factor he oversees the best series in the show's history.

Speaking to The Sun before his personal tragedy he said: “I want to savour that this year. The first live show is going to be unbelievable. We have all different types of singers as well so it’s going to be hard for viewers to choose who to vote for."

Barlow also shrugged off the idea that the BBC's The Voice would make it tougher for his show, saying that the arms race to sign up the best talent for both shows would lead to a better series.

The 'Forever Love' singer said: “I think if there was any pressure it’s been dealt with. The talent we have seen this year has been unbelievable. I’m so pleased as that was my one complaint of last year. I thought we were missing four or five better singers in our final 12. It’s been extraordinary this year. Everybody thinks so."

He even described how crew were impressed with how the show was shaping up, saying: "I have even heard cameramen saying to each other that it’s a massive improvement. “The standard has definitely gone up a few notches. I think the audience is going to love it.”

We wish Gary well in his personal life, and also hope that the new series is every bit as good as he thinks it will be!
