Gary Barlow In 'Fag Ash Breath' Jibe At Tulisa
The X Factor judges get personal as they critique Christopher Maloney...
The pair had been bickering over Gary's controversial act Christopher Maloney when the Take That star made it personal with T.
According to Sky News, she had asked him: "How many of these '80s classics are you going to let him keep destroying? Every week he's getting the same critique from all of the judges. I even feel bad having to say the same thing."
To which an irate Gary responded: "I don't know what's offended me more. What you've said or your fag ash breath."
Former N-Dubz star Tulisa looked mortified for a moment before shooting back: "Just a note for Gary - lay off the red wine because I can really smell that as well."
And later on The Xtra Factor Gary admitted that he had enjoyed "a little sip" of vino before the show.
He added: "Can I apologise to Tulisa - I mean it. You have the freedom to be as personal as you like to me for the rest of the series - insult me."
Tulisa's contestant Lucy Spraggan was given a free pass to the next week's show after coming down with a severe dose of flu, leaving her unable to perform.
