Barlow now odds-on to be an X Factor judge

| 29.03.2011

Gary Barlow is now odds-on to be an X Factor judge this year according to Ladbrokes.

The bookies have slashed the odds on the Take That singer taking up a permanent position on the judging panel for the next series.

Lily Allen is a 4/1 chance with Louis Walsh and Danni Minogue the shortest priced to return at 1/8 each.

Rumour also has it that Barlow would mentor the groups category should he get the gig and the bookies quote odds of 4/1 that a group wins the show this year.

Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Barlow might be playing down his chances but we think he’s getting ready to sit alongside Walsh and Mingoue on the panel.”
