Gary Barlow isn't looking forward to Saturday's (12.10.13) 'X Factor' because of the pressure of losing an act from the show

Gary Barlow isn't looking forward to Saturday's (12.10.13) 'X Factor' because an act will exit the show.

The judge - who is mentoring the Groups - isn't happy at the prospect of potentially losing one of his acts in the 200-second Flash Vote, where viewers have the short time to vote for their favourite performers.

He told The Sun newspaper: "I always enjoyed Saturday nights as there was no decision made, but now they have been ruined.

"I have always hated Sundays because we get a vote in there, but I think it will definitely add to the drama on Saturday night."

The wannabe or act to get the lowest number of votes in the Flash Vote will face the axe on the Sunday show.

Gary also admitted he was initially disappointed when he was given the Groups - Rough Copy, Miss Dynamix and Kingsland Road - but is amazed at how quickly they have adapted.

He said: "It was the worst I had ever seen all the groups. It was really bad.

"And that's because they get given a song and within 24 hours have to do it. For groups, it is the hardest bit.

"I was sat there thinking, 'Oh my God'. And then, when we go back to doing the songs they know and have rehearsed, they have completely knocked it out the park.

"They feel relevant. It is early days but I feel really good about this year."
