Louis Walsh: 'British X Factor Is The Best'
X Factor judge insists the UK version has 'the edge' over foreign rivals...
In other X Factor news, it has been reported today that Gary Barlow will be inviting the Over-25s category to a stately home for the judges' houses phase of the competition.
While his fellow judges, Louis, Tulisa and Nicole Scherzinger, will be jetting off to exotic sunshine destinations, the Take That frontman is keen to stay close to his wife following the tragic loss of their baby.
According to Digital Spy, three manors, Cornbury Park, Cornwell Manor and Boughton House, in Oxfordshire and Northamptonshire are being considered as possible locations.
A show source told the website: "Gary understandably doesn't want to be too far from his family after their ordeal so we're making sure we give the wannabes a treat here in the UK."
