Gary Barlow's The X Factor co-stars Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh have reached out to the singer after he pulled out of his promotional commitments for the UK show to deal with the loss of his daughter.

X Factor judges send best wishes to Gary

The Take That star's wife, Dawn, gave birth to a stillborn baby named Poppy on 4 August, and Barlow is taking time off from his TV duties to grieve.

He skipped the official launch of the new series of The X Factor in London on Thursday, but his co-judges had the star on their mind.

Walsh says: "We've all spoken to Gary, we're all in touch with him all the time", while ex-N-Dubz singer Contostavlos adds: "He knows all of our thoughts are with him."

Barlow, who has three children with Dawn, sent his best wishes to fans in a special message, stating: "Thanks for all the support. 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 at judges' homes and on the live shows."
