Former 'X Factor' judge Gary Barlow has insisted his co-star Nicole Scherzinger should return for another series, praising her work ethic and admitting he hopes she is back later this year
Gary Barlow has claimed Nicole Scherzinger should return to 'The X Factor'.
The Take That singer - who stepped down from his role as a judge when the most recent series came to an end in December - has said he hopes the Pussycat Doll will be back and he expects to see Louis Walsh on the TV talent show's panel later this year.
Discussing this year's judges on 'Alan Carr: Chatty Man', he commented: "Is Louis back ... He's back, he's always back!
"For me I'd have Nicole back again. I thought she was a great judge and for all of her contestants she was great, she'd spend all week meeting with them, going to Greggs with them. She really did work really hard."
The 'Greatest Day' hitmaker also explained that the show's boss Simon Cowell was fine with his decision to quit, and he is now ready to "move on".
He added: "Do you know I had three brilliant years, especially last year. Last year was a hoot from the word go and it was just time to go.
"Three years is just long enough, I didn't overstay my welcome, I just did it and enjoyed it and I can move on now."
