Take That star Gary Barlow has reportedly signed on to pen the debut single for the winner of this year's British The X Factor.
Barlow, who is a judge on the talent show alongside Louis Walsh, Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos, wrote 2010 contest winner Matt Cardle's latest single, Run For Your Life, and now TV bosses have asked him to create an original song for the winner of the current British series.
A source tells The Sun, "The move will be a huge boost to the show's credibility as it means the X Factor single won't be just another cover (song)."
