Gary Barlow is reported to be leaving the X Factor judging panel at the end of this year's series to concentrate on Take That's new album.
Take That have a tour penciled in for the end of 2014 and it's believed that they want to spend the end of next year in the studio recording.
A new Take That album and tour is exciting yes, but it would clash with Gary's X Factor commitments and it's unlikely he would, or could, do both at the same time.

Last year Gary battled with tiredness after committing to both the show and a Take That tour and we really can't see him double booking again.
Plus, with chances of a return to the panel already slim, it's thought that he has had enough of the show after rows with producers following the dramas over the weekend.
After seeing Gary storm off the show last Sunday we knew things weren't looking too good.
A source told The Sun: "The events of the last week have really confirmed in Gary's mind that he needs to get back to what he loves best."
"Gary is going to give this series his all and then it will be full steam ahead for Take That.
"The lads are enjoying a bit of freedom at the moment, but they are all united in their desire to get Take That back on the road.
"A new album and tour have been discussed and all five of the boys are making really positive noises."
First Cheryl Cole and now Gary? It's just not fair! Although we can't help but wonder who Simon might draft in to replace Gary…
