Gary Barlow ‘Too Young For A Knighthood’
Singer says he's too young to think about becoming 'Sir Gary'...
He may have done a lot for charity and be heavily involved with the Jubilee celebrations, but Gary Barlow insists he is too young to think about getting a knighthood.
Gary, Take That star replied: “I feel a bit young, if I am honest. I don’t wake up every morning thinking about that, I just want to do good stuff.
“When they asked me to be involved in the Jubilee concert I knew what I could do to change it, to make it feel like a new concert.
"As long as I feel I could bring something to a worthwhile project, then I am always willing to be involved.”
Gary, who co-wrote the official Jubilee song, entitled Sing, for the Diamond Jubilee with Andrew Lloyd Webber, has also organised a concert for the Queen including Sir Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder and Kylie Minogue.
Last year, his Children In Need Rocks Manchester concert raised £2.5million for charity.
Now his good works will be highlighted in a documentary about the Jubilee song, which will be broadcast during the Jubilee weekend.
In the same interview, Gary, who will be back on our screens in the autumn on The X Factor, also hinted that we might be seeing more of Geri Halliwell, who is tipped to be the fourth judge on the show.
“We start in Liverpool. I know Geri Halliwell and I think she will make a good guest judge and we could be seeing more of her on the show,” he said.
On Her Majesty’s Service will be shown on BBC1 on Sunday 3 June 3 at 19.30pm. The official Diamond Jubilee song Sing is released on 28 May and will be performed live at the Diamond Jubilee Concert on 4 June.
