Today is the 20th of January, which marks Take That frontman Gary Barlow’s 46th birthday!
For all Gary fans, 2017 is definitely set to be a year to remember. The singer is currently head judge on new BBC1 talent show Let It Shine, which aims to find five young men to take part in a new Take That musical. Staying in on a Saturday night has never been so appealing! Speaking of musicals, Gary and Tim Firth’s musical The Girls is preparing to launch in London’s West End next weekend, following a successful run in Leeds last year.
Of course, 2017 also sees the return of Take That, with a brand new album on its way in March. The band will also embark on a 32-date tour across the UK in May and June.
It’s evident that Gary has a lot to celebrate this year, on top of his special day. But for now, we wanted to put the spotlight on Gary’s birthday and celebrate in our own way. What better way to do so, than by sharing 46 GIFs of the man in all his glory? Enjoy!
