Gary Barlow believes he's found the next big girl group after putting together three female singers including Jeanette Akua at X Factor's Boot Camp

Gary Barlow thinks he's created the new Destiny's Child.

The 'X Factor' judge is convinced he's made pop history by assembling the perfect girl group after putting Sunday's auditionee (15.09.13) Jeanette Akua together with two other female singers at Boot Camp to create a band called Stop, Look, Listen.

An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Gary really believes this trio could be the new Destiny's Child if they work hard.They sound really good together, they can dance and they look great.

"Both Little Mix and One Direction were put together half-way through the competition and look at their success. If the group make it to the live shows, they'll be one to watch."

South African-born Jeanette's rendition of Birdy's 'Skinny Love' went down a storm with the judges - Gary, Sharon Osbourne, Nicole Scherzinger and Louis Walsh - who branded her a "vision" and said she had "star quality".

Gary is hoping the girl group can achieve the same chart success as 2011 winners Little Mix, as well as drawing in the extra viewing figures TV bosses need.

An insider said: "At the moment bosses think the Sunday night show is doing better, but they're pleased with both figures."

Another added: "If it's around 10 million that's OK, but if it's over 10 million, it's much, much better."
