Gary Barlow is the new Simon Cowell of the x factor and don’t be expecting Gary to get any less intense any time soon. “This is the point where it gets really, really serious and the competition becomes very ruthless.”

Gary told the Sun TV buzz, “We’ve seen talent and we’ve seen them do great performances, but this is where they should come out of their body and really show us what they’re about.”

Boot camp sounds pretty intense, “They should be excited – they’ve got the doorway to the live show so they should be buzzing”

Insisted Gary, “They certainly shouldn’t be fearing this.” Not too sure how the X Factor contestants feel.
