Take That's Gary Barlow for X Factor?

Take That's Gary Barlow is reportedly on the verge of signing a deal with The X Factor.

The singer is apparently being offered £2 million to appear on the UK version of the talent show as a judge and is 'just days away' from finalising a deal with Simon Cowell.

'The show's bosses are really keen on Gary - they know he is highly knowledgeable about music,' a source told Star Magazine. 

"Simon really respects Gary - as far as Simon is concerned, he is the perfect person to mentor the groups - not only because of his experience within the industry but because he knows both sides of fame."
