Today (January 20) marks Gary Barlow’s 47th birthday. Since his last birthday, the Take That front man has had a year bursting with incredible achievements. From touring the world with Take That and The Girls hitting the West End, to Let It Shine and the launch of The Band musical, it’s safe to say that his 46th year was an absolute triumph.
However, one of our favourite things that Gary has done in the past year is set up his own Instagram account. From posting concert snaps to selfies, Gary has gone the extra mile to give fans across the world a further glimpse into his life.
To celebrate Gary’s 47th birthday, we’ve done the almost impossible task of scrolling through his Instagram to pick out 47 of his best posts from the past year. Happy birthday Gary Barlow!
