Gary Barlow is "sick of Adele".

The 'X Factor' judge - who sits alongside Tulisa Contostavlos, Kelly Rowland and Louis Walsh on the panel of the ITV1 show - explained the quartet have "had enough" of contestants singing Adele and Lady Gaga tracks to the extent that he's even told the 'Someone Like You' hitmaker about his dislike for her songs.

He explained: "This year has been all Adele - we're sick of Adele. She came to one of the Wembley shows and I said to her, 'Listen, I've got to be honest right now, I'm really sick of your album because it's all that's being played at 'X Factor'.' But she completely understood.

"And Lady Gaga - we've really had enough of those two."

While the Take That singer - who replaced Simon Cowell on the 'X Factor' judging panel - admits the foursome are getting annoyed with Adele and Lady Gaga tracks, Louis is still struggling to even understand the name of Tulisa's hip-hop group N-Dubz.

Gary added to BBC Radio 1: "Tulisa and Louis - the most unlikely of couples - are really getting on well.

"When we first come out for the auditions, he says, 'Everybody, have you heard of The N-Dubz?' He still hasn't quite got his head round the fact it's just N-Dubz, not The N-Dubz."
