Gary might have to go solo, and we all know how that went last time...
"We’re still waiting to hear but, if it doesn’t happen, I don’t know what we’re going to do," Gazza Bazza told The Mirror.
"I might just have to get on the piano and do a bit of Roll Out The Barrel."
Meanwhile, one of Cheryl's less cherished aquaintances has gobbed off to the paper in a much more dramatic fashion;
"There’s a chance that Cheryl might have to pull out," they said.
"The next 24 hours are crucial. She’ll see a doctor on Wednesday morning to see if she can perform.”
Gary's also confirmed that Lady Gaga will be the show's opener - hopefully not in her decapitated mannequin outfit that she wore on the X Factor and may have stolen from the set of Friends (Phoebe's scary painting, anyone?).
“Lady Gaga has pretty much flown in to do X Factor and this," said Gary.
"She just wants to hang around with me!”
Children In Need Rocks Manchester is set to take place this Thursday November 17th, with JLS, Ed Sheeran and N-Dubz also set to perform.
