JUDGE: Gary Bar­low TAL­ENT show judge Gary Bar­low has snubbed Si­mon Cowell’s cast-offs on his new show

The Take That singer ad­mit­ted he doesn’t want flops from the likes of Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent and The X Fac­tor to au­di­tion for his se­ries.

Gary – along­side Martin Kemp, Dan­nii Minogue and Glee’s Am­ber Ri­ley – is look­ing to cast five men to play a boy­band in his up­com­ing Take That-themed mu­si­cal.

The 46-year-old star said: “There are a lot of shows on TV ask­ing for tal­ent, so you’re hop­ing they’re not go­ing to have done Bri­tain’s Got Tal­ent, The X Fac­tor and The Voice.

“This is a show go­ing into theatre – pre­con­ceived re­ac­tions to­wards peo­ple are bad.

“We’re look­ing young, fresh tal­ent.

“You don’t want bag­gage of any kind.”

The tour­ing show, ti­tled The Band, will fol­low the jour­ney of a male pop group and for fea­ture the Take That.

Gary said: “Back in 1989, we were just a group of nor­mal guys from Manch­ester who came to­gether to be­come Take That.

“The se­cret to our suc­cess was that each of us brought some­thing dif­fer­ent to the group and that the five of us had real chem­istry.”
