TAKE That star Gary Barlow is rumoured to hunting for a stately home in Oxfordshire to film the next X-Factor series.

The songwriter and frontman, right, has been on the hunt for a place to hold auditions in the ‘judges’ houses’ section of the hit reality show.

But it looks as though the judge may have found a home elsewhere despite reports of Cornbury Park and Cornwell Manor being considered.

Cornbury Park spokesman Alison Wright said: “Unfortunately X-Factor will not be using Cornbury as a venue.

“I think they were considering it, along with a few others in the area, but I can confirm it will not be at Cornbury.”

The family home of Lord and Lady Rotherwick near Charlbury, is the site of the annual Wilderness music festival.

Other houses reportedly in the running include Cornwell Manor, near Chipping Norton.
