Gary Barlow lived up to his role as head judge on The X Factor by taking to the stage to remove a stubborn auditionee.
The Take That star turned bouncer when Michael Lewis - who was booed on last year's show for an eccentric Michael Jackson impersonation - refused to leave the stage after failing to impress the crowd, the Sun reports.
Gary apparently went on stage at the London audition and told the hopeful to leave.
A witness told the newspaper: "Everyone was very grateful. Michael acted like a child by slumping down on the stage and it was clear Gary wasn't going to tolerate that behaviour."
