`X-Factor` judges take dig at Barlow

London: Singer Gary Barlow became the target of digs by US reality show ‘X-Factor’ judges.

Barlow is speculated to receive a knighthood soon as he organised Queen Elizabeth II`s recent Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

On the sets of ‘X-Factor’, judges - Irish manager Louis Walsh and singer Tulisa Contostavlos, wasted no time in poking fun at Barlow`s prospective new title.

"The audience erupted into applause when Gary was introduced as `Sir Gary` when the judges walked on stage and began to take their seats," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying.

"He was jokingly knighted by the warm-up man while Louis Walsh, sporting a new haircut, started calling him Sir Gary, too. The crowd then got behind him, chanting, `Get Gary knighted," the source added.
