Gary Barlow has promised he will be back on the X Factor judging panel in time to mentor his acts.

The judge missed the launch of this year's show to spend time with his family after the death of his baby daughter.

Barlow said "I'll be watching the show at home on Saturday with my family and I know you're going to love it.

"The talent is amazing this year and I'm looking forward to working with and mentoring my acts."
