It's double shifts for X Factor judge Gary Barlow

Take That's Gary Barlow is having to multi-task for his new role on The X Factor - by judging and performing on the same day.

The singer, who attended the first audition of this summer's competition yesterday, will watch hopefuls by day and fill stadiums by night.

"Double shifts for me," he told BBC Radio 5 Live.

He said he would be attending all 12 auditions, despite clashes with live dates as his group play to 1.7 million people on their sell-out stadium tour.

"That was one of the things, I didn't want to miss any of the audition days," he said.

"I want to see all the talent."

Barlow was at Birmingham's LG Arena along with fellow judges Louis Walsh, Tulisa Contostavlos and Kelly Rowland to see thousands of hopefuls perform.
