After taking a two year break from the The X Factor, Guy Sebastian has returned to some bickering between the judges that has turned so nasty that he’s considering not returning next season.
Sebastian has said that sitting next to fellow judges Dannii Minogue, Chris Isaak and James Blunt has turned into a not so friendly atmosphere.
‘You know how we sort of have those little grabs of us being competitive? That’s always been in jest. But this year for the first time it’s been taken very literally,’ the 34-year-old singer reveals. ‘It’s been quite catty.’
Audiences can see the heat between Chris and James, and the tension continues, even when the cameras stop rolling. ‘James and Chris – there is proper tension there,’ says Guy, adding that he’s staying away from the conflict. ‘I’m not about squabbling at our age, so that has been a little bit challenging.’
So will he be back next year? ‘I only ever sign on year by year [because] my priority is music,’ he admits to. ‘It’s not a priority for me. It’s just… a little sprinkle on top.’
Do you thing Guy will return next year?
