The X Factor judge Gary Barlow has said he has closed his music label Future Records because he has too many commitments, including his home life.

All of the artists signed up to the Take That star's Future Records are to be taken over by the label's parent company Universal.

Barlow, whose fourth child, Poppy, was stillborn in August, told The Sun: "It's been a very difficult decision but it came down to time. I've had a lot going on recently and I want to spend more time with my family."
