Robbie Williams Keeps Gary Barlow Off The Top Spot On UK Album Chart


Robbie Williams Gary Barlow Take That One Direction Ellie Goulding Beyonce Knowles Michael Buble Olly Murs Eminem The Killers

It was like 1997 all over again this weekend, as Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow battled it out for the Number One spot on the UK Album Chart. Much like the battles of the mid-to-late nineties, it was Robbie who came out on top again, making him the last artist to top the album chart in 2013.

Robbie WilliamsGary Barlow
The Take That guys were fighting for the top spot yet again

Robbie's new big band album, Swing Both Ways, held on to the No. 1 spot for a second week, having emerged victorious from another closely fought contest from last week. It was One Direction who Robbie managed to beat to the No. 1 spot last week, with his latest album beating Midnight Memories to the top spot by just 200 copies. This time around it was a relatively more clear contest, with Swing Both Ways outselling Gary Barlow’s latest solo effort, Since I Saw You Last, by approximately 12,000 copies.

BBC Scales Back 'Gary Barlow Day' After Overexposure Criticism


Gary Barlow U2

The BBC have been forced to scale back plans for a 'Gary Barlow Day' set to take place on BBC Radio 2, scheduled for Wednesday 11th December. Though the singer is a judge on The X Factor for ITV, the BBC had a whole day of interviews, performances and online Q&As planned. The Take That star has also recently released his first solo album in 14 years, Since I Saw You Last, which added to concerns that the broadcaster's heavy focus could be seen as endorsement.

Gary Barlow
He's Everywhere!

The BBC originally defended their plans for a day of Barlow-based entertainment, describing the planned broadcast as "no ordinary performance." The scheduled on the BBC website outlined appearances on Ken Bruce and Steve Wright's Radio 2 shows, as well as a broadcasted concert from the BBC Radio Theatre and an 'Ask Gary' online Q&A.

Patience: Gary Barlow Trying To Overcome His Fear Of Flying


Gary Barlow Take That

You basically can’t be an international pop star if you’ve got a fear of flying. It’s the ‘international bit – which is hard to achieve without being airborne. Unless you fancy getting a ferry around the world, like Dennis Bergkamp. The tour will feature some pretty sparse dates though.

Gary BarlowGary Barlow Has A Fear of Flying

This is something Gary Barlow knows all too well, although he must have been doing something to remedy it, as Take That weren’t exactly singing at the local pub. “I’m scared of flying – especially the take-off. I just don’t like it, and yet I have to do so much of it. I get really nervous,” he said. “Maybe it’s because I’m scared of dying.” (The Mirror)

Gary Barlow has revealed that Elton John laid down the vocals on his new song Face to Face in just ten minutes.

However, the 61 year-old Irish entertainment manager has now sheepishly revealed in an interview with TV host Jonathan Ross that he hasn't had his X Factor fill just yet.

A week after Sir Paul McCartney's latest solo album, New, debuted, the brand new video for track 'Queenie Eye' premieres today (October 24, 2013). However, this isn't any old music video: the former Beatle has called on a few friends to help, with stars including Gary Barlow, Alice Eve, Kate Moss, Chris Pine, Johnny Depp, James Corden and Jeremy Irons all featured.

The song is named after and draws inspiration from a childhood game McCartney used to play in Liverpool. "Queenie eye, queenie eye, who's got the ball? It isn't in my pocket.

There’s a new boss in town, and this time it’s a woman. Sharon Osbourne has stamped all over the ‘head judge’ mug and now she’s taking the title for herself, as Gary Barlow admits to The Sun.

Gary BarlowGary Barlow concedes that Sharon is in charge of everything X-Factor

Barlow himself was brought in to replace Simon Cowell after he quit the show in 2010 to launch x factor USA. “There’s no question she’s the head judge. The mug – I can’t even find it. It’s gone. She has been in and stood on it. She’s the queen. She’s back.” He added: “It’s been brilliant having her back. It’s so good to have someone who has done so much TV work because she is totally at ease and she has brought out the worst in all of us!”

Gary Barlow Joins Chris Evans For Cross Country Charity Trip In Pink Rolls Royce


Gary Barlow Chris Evans Brian Cox James May

Gary Barlow and Chris Evans make an unlikely driving team as they travel up and down the country in a pink Rolls Royce in a bid to raise £1 million for Breast Cancer Care. They are joined by James May, the Top Gear presenter and Brian Cox, the TV science bod. The four celebrities are driving from Land’s End to John O’Groats to raise £1 million for Breast Cancer Care.

The FAB1 Million Challenge kicked off this morning, with the celebs heading off in the Rolls Royce, after Chris Evans finished his TV show. They’re expecting to finish in Scotland at about 4am on Friday morning (April 19, 2013) according to the Metro and they’ll be stopping off in Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and Glasgow. The Take That singer, Gary Barlow, said: “If we can raise £1million it will be amazing. The car is incredible. I can’t wait to drive it, I’ve been designated as the tour chef and I’m going to dig my camping stove out, give it a dust-off and bring some food with me. I’m hoping along the way we get lots of support from the country.”

The fundraising idea was thought up by Chris Evans, who explained that they plan to use the car after the trip to continue raising money for the charity, by making it available to hire. “FAB1 Million aims to raise a million pounds for breast cancer, it’s as simple as that,” explained the radio DJ. “You can hire the most famous Rolls Royce in the world as the icing on the cake to whatever special event you are attending, knowing that you are donating to a very worthy cause in the process. It’s a win-win situation.”

Gary Barlow Folds Record Label To Be With His Family, Also It's Gone Bust


Gary Barlow

Yesterday (Dec 29) it was announced that Gary Barlow would be disbanding his record label, Future Records, with the Take That man saying the reason behind the label's folding was so that he could spend more time with his family - however the fact that the label has lost £4 million over its short lifespan probably has something to do with it.

Future Records was founded by Barlow in 2009, and despite signing a number of promising acts, including rapper Aggro Santos and Sky TV talent show winner Emma’s Imagination, the label failed to ever set the charts alight and thus amassed loses of £4 million. This is something Barlow neglected to mention when he announced he was calling it quits with the label, telling The Sun earlier this week: "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."

Today though, Barlow's financial indescrpencies have seeped into public knowledge, when a source close to Barlow revealed: “Gary’s label wasn’t making enough money or generating any success. It’s as simple as that."

Gary Barlow To Sell Off His Record Company So He Can Spend Time With His Family


Gary Barlow

Gary Barlow really couldn't make himself any more endearing to people, as his next act will be to sell his record company, Future Records, so that he can spend more time with his family. What a guy.

The Take That and Diamond Jubilee mastermind told The Sun that he is tired of juggling so many different responsibilities, and the first of his duties to go is Future Records. The artists signed to Future Records, which includes Aggro Santos amongst others, will now be re-housed by Future's parent company Universal.

Barlow told the newspaper: "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."

Christmas Number One: The Race Is On


James Arthur The X Factor Simon Cowell Sir Paul McCartney Melanie C Rage Against The Machine Matt Cardle Robbie Williams Gary Barlow

With only nine days left until the big day, the race is on to see who will be sitting atop the UK Singles Chart this christmas, with the charity Hillsborough single battling it out with X Factor winner James Arthur for the coveted Christmas No. 1.

Only a few years ago, it was pretty much a given that the festive number one spot would go to The X Factor or Pop Idol/Popstars winner, however the competition has gotten a little more heated in recent years for for a number of reasons, and unlike before there is an air of uncertainty as to who will walk away with this year's number one spot at Christmas.

Girls Aloud were the first to do it back in 2002, when 'Sound in the Underground' took the Yuletide top spot. Then, from Shayne Ward in 2005 to Alexandra Burke in 2008, Simon Cowell's creations had that top spot wrapped up like dad's songs on Christmas Eve. That all changed when a successful Facebook campaign saw Rage Against The Machine's 1991 debut single 'Killing In The Name' take the top spot away from that years' winner, and thus outrage erupted (even though all profits RATM made were donated to charity, as opposed to Simon Cowell's already bulging wallet). Even though Matt Cardle managed to come up trumps the next year with 'When We Collide,' 2011 again saw a change in the wind when the choir ensemble Military Wives with Gareth Malone took the Xmas top spot with their rendition of 'Wherever You Are.' This time round though, SiCo was a little more forgiving.

Cheryl Cole Answers Simon Cowell's SOS For X-Factor Return


Cheryl Cole Simon Cowell The X Factor Gary Barlow Nicole Scherzinger Louis Walsh Girls Aloud

In potentially worrying news for Nicole Scherzinger, Cheryl Cole has flown to Los Angeles for showdown talks with Simon Cowell about returning to x factor. The show has been blighted by poor viewing figures, poor acts and a pretty appalling judging panel this year and Cowell is ready to bring back the Girls Aloud star.

It's thought that either Cowell himself or Cole must return to the judging panel for the show to regain any sort of credibility. Gary Barlow hasn't made the grade as head judge, while Nicole Scherzinger doesn't appear to be gelling with the British public. Louis Walsh is never going to leave, so there's little point in even speculating. Anyway, it's likely that either Nicole or Gary will leave at the end of the current season, paving the way for Cheryl to get back into the hot seat. The Geordie singer arrived at Simon Cowell's Los Angeles mansion at 8pm on Wednesday (November 28, 2012) and stayed for three-and-a-half hours, according to the Daily Mirror. It is thought the two were discussing Cheryl's return to X Factor, which Cowell sees as a way of reinvigorating the ailing show. The meeting comes 18 months after he sensationally sacked Cheryl from the US version of the singing show after just a couple of weeks of auditions. 

In his recent biography, Cowell he admitted falling for Cole during their time working together. The music mogul, 52, told friends he was "mesmerised" by Cheryl, adding, "I would have liked an affair with her. I felt like a mouse being played with by a beautiful cat."  Bit weird.

Good News For Take That Fans - New Album Due In 2013


Take That Gary Barlow Andrew Lloyd Webber

Gary Barlow has announced that Take That will start work on a new album next year and they’ve got none other than Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber on board to help out with the songwriting. Quite what that will mean for the man-band isn’t clear but hopefully they’re not going to go all jazz-hands and stage musical on us.

In an interview with the Daily Mirror, Barlow confirmed “I have got a lot of Take That stuff next year and then, hopefully, a tour the year after. A new studio album feels right for us, it has always been in our minds.” He added “The band cycles are obvious. Everyone wanted a year off this year, and now everybody can't wait to get back into the studio in February and that is what we are going to do. So, hopefully, an album for Christmas and a tour the following year.” The band have been enjoying their renaissance, after splitting in 1996 and then getting back together in 2008.

Fans will no doubt be wondering just how long they’re expecting to carry on, but Barlow assured them “We’re far from over. We’re all creative, we’re singers and songwriters. There’s plenty left in us, don’t worry… Mark’s solo album is out next year. I was talking to him about it earlier today and he’s very excited about it.” Good news then… now all we need to figure out is whether or not Robbie’s going to stick with them at all.

Robbie Williams Live 02 Gig Shows He's Still Got It


Robbie Williams Gary Barlow Alan Carr

For someone who spends more time holding out his microphone to the audience, ironically meaning the crowd do most of the leg work at his concerts, Robbie Williams can still attract the crowds. His latest show - at the 02 London - had gone down marvellously.

He was even given a Twitter boost by his pal and old band mate, Gary Barlow, who posted, "Have a great show tonight @robbiewilliams #O2london", and after the show, celebrity praise was ample, with comedian Alan Carr tweeting, "Just seen @robbiewilliams at the 02 - amazing - what a showman!! Now how can I get him on @chattyman hmmmmn!!!!" The Telegraph were perhaps the most doting, however, giving the show a 5 star review, writing, "The show was staged in the round and it felt fitting because we were seeing many sides of Williams - the self deprecating comedian making cracks about the Queen not recognising him, the Norman Wisdom impersonator and the great British pop icon."

"Tonight was triumphant," the review went onto say. "A reminder that Robbie Williams remains one of the national treasures of British pop. 'They said it was leaving me, the magic was leaving me' he had sung earlier on 'Be A Boy', adding 'I don't think so.' I don't think so either, Robbie." So it looks like Robbie's still got it!

Arise Sir Kenneth: Kenneth Branagh Knighted By The Queen At Buckingham Palace


Kenneth Branagh Gary Barlow Danny Boyle

Actor/writer/director and all round renaissance-man Kenneth Branagh received his knighthood today at Buckingham Palace by Queen Elizabeth II, having been told of his accolade following the announcement of Queen's birthday honours in June this year.

Sir Kenneth, who is perhaps best known for his Shakespearean roles both in front and behind the camera, also played a part in this year's Olympic opening ceremony, donning the trademark stove-pipe hat as he played Britain's most famous industrialist Sir Isambard Kingdom Brunel at the start of Danny Boyle's breathtaking spectacle.

Branagh was not the only person honoured in the Birthday list from the entertainment industry, with X Factor judge and Diamond Jubilee organiser Gary Barlow recognised with an OBE for his services to the entertainment industry and to charity. Comedy writer Armando Iannucci, known for his work on sitcoms such as The Thick Of It and I'm Alan Partridge, was also given an OBE in the honours.

Banter-Barlow: Rylan Clark Confirms Gary Barlow Feud Is A Sham


Gary Barlow Rylan Clark Kourtney Kardashian

Rylan Clark has confirmed what we all kind of knew to be true. His feud with Gary Barlow is all for the show and when the cameras stop rolling, Barlow is “lovely” to him. The immaculately-facial-haired wannabe pop star is doing a pretty good job of deconstructing the fragile mythology surrounding X Factor and all of the drama that supposedly goes on between the judges and the contestants and talking to ITN News, he’s rubber-stamped our suspicions about Barlow’s apparent disdain for the weak-voiced one.

When asked if Gary Barlow picks on any of the contestants, Rylan said “Barlow’s fine… I love Gary, I think Gary’s lovely… do you know what, tensions get so high in that studio, honestly, it’s like, every judge for their act… it’s banter-Barlow off-stage.” Still, whether it’s genuine or not, those snarky comments between Gary and Rylan are probably still the most entertaining part of the programmes, so far.

Rylan was speaking to ITN at the launch of Kim and Kourtney Kardashian’s new fashion range for Dorothy Perkins, which was unveiled at London’s Aqua nightclub last night (November 8, 2012). The X Factor finalists were all on hand to support reality TV stars Kim and Kourtney and The Daily Mail have shown all of them posing for photos with the two glamorous sisters. Liverpudlian cheeseball Christopher Malone even managed not to break down and cry at the enormity of the situation. Well done Chris!

X-Factor's Christopher Maloney Comes Under Fire From Peers


Gary Barlow The X Factor

Christopher Maloney, who started his X-Factor career as a quivering mess, has turned his fate around and is now the only contestant left in Gary Barlow's over-28s category. However, at least one of this year's contestants doesn't think Maloney is playing fair and square... in fact, they don't even like him.

The Sun has spoken to Kye Sones who was booted out this weekend. According to Sones, when asked why he thinks Maloney is still in the running, "God knows. He must have an expensive phone bill!" 

"All of us have got really close and then you've got Chris. We've been a really strong group and he's been an outsider - and that's nothing to do with any of us lot." He said, "He's very tactical. There are two different people - one when cameras are there and one when they're not there... I'm just glad that, from day one, I have not lied and have been very honest and that was my main thing and I can walk away with my head held high." Plus, according to the Mirror, a member of staff on the show said "I've seen [Maloney] dialling and redialling his own number over and over again. It's sad really but he wants it that much that he is spending a fortune." They also said that an unnamed production executive said, "You can't outlaw this sort of behaviour but it leaves a very sour taste. It's against the spirit of the show."

Gary Barlow Honoured For 'Inspiring Goodwill' By Prince Charles


Gary Barlow Prince Charles

Gary Barlow was praised for 'inspiring goodwill' by the Prince of Wales as the royal presented him with the prestigious Music Industry Award for his recognised efforts in the industry.

Prince Charles showed his admiration for the Take That singer's achievements at the award ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, even labelling him a 'national treasure'. 'Over the past 25 years, you have become one of the great stars of the British music industry and you are the very embodiment of that rare species, a national treasure', he told the popstar. 'It seems to me you inspire goodwill wherever you go and your appeal transcends the ages, a very rare feat if I may say so.'

The 'X Factor' judge duly accepted the award making clear how honoured he felt to be presented with it and how much performing music means to him. 'I've been doing this for 22 years now, and the one thing that's more apparent to me than ever before is how much I love performing', he said. 'To be able to do it, I feel really lucky, I never want to turn my back on it. It's so special when you get something like this, because it's recognised within the industry. I'm a lover of this industry, I'd do anything to protect it, and when you're given something from that industry, I'm honoured.'

Can 'Candy' Take The Crown? Robbie Williams Headed For Number One


Robbie Williams Gary Barlow Rylan Clark Greg James Labrinth Fun

Robbie Williams last scored a number one single in 2004 but the former Take That star looks as though he’s heading for the top of the charts this weekend 'with his latest single ‘Candy,’ according to NME.com. It’s the first single to be taken from his forthcoming album Take The Crown and has sold 73,000 copies so far, since its release.

Sales will have been buoyed by his appearance on last week’s X Factor show, during which he joked with his Take That pal Gary Barlow about his support for the controversial contestant on the show, Rylan Clark. When he was asked by Radio One’s Greg James (who presents the station’s weekly official chart show) what he would do if he got the number one slot this Sunday (November 4, 2012), he replied that he would “stay in, look for UFOs, get fat and beardy again.” Robbie’s last number one single was ‘Radio,’ which coincided with the release of his Greatest Hits album in 2004. His ninth studio album, Take The Crown, will be released on November 5, 2012.

Last week, Labrinth and Emeli Sande’s duet ‘Our Version Of Events’ also hit the top spot, after they had performed live on X Factor, though they have slipped to third place, in the midweek charts analysis. The X Factor effect shouldn’t be underestimated. Fun have just leapt 29 places with ‘We Are Young’, after they also appeared on the TV talent contest in the UK.

Did X Factor’s James Arthur Rip Off YouTube Star Noah? (Videos)


The X Factor James Arthur Gary Barlow Louis Walsh

x factor star James Arthur has been accused of ripping off a YouTube star for his latest performance on the reality show. Arthur, 24, performed a stripped back acoustic version of LMFAO’s Sexy and I Know It on Saturday’s show and won praise from all four judges.

 

The arrangement of the song was certainly refreshing and Arthur was easily one of the better performers on the night, though his rendition has drawn comparisons to a YouTube singer known as Only1Noah. His version of the track – uploaded five months ago – has since received 13.5 million hits and features the exact same arrangement as Arthur’s track. Noah had added the caption, “Okay guys! So I've actually always wanted to cover this and I finally arranged a version of it that I hope you like!” Disgruntled fans of the YouTube star have taken to the video’s comments section to vent their anger, with one user saying, “James Arthur should be axed from the show for his disgraceful talent of stealing other people's work. Shame on him seriously.”

Gary Barlow's Solo Concert Run Sells Out Straight Away


Gary Barlow

Gary Barlow has smashed all expectations with his latest string of solo concerts, selling out his run of gigs in just minutes, according to the man himself on Twitter.

With his recent spat with just about everyone on The X Factor, Gary has been looking more and more likely to go his separate way from the show, and with this encouraging reception he has already received for his duo of solo gigs, he might be considering throwing in the towel on the talent show even more.

It has been 11 years since Gary performed his last solo show, and clearly his presence on the road has been missed as tickets for two upcoming shows sold out within an hour of going on sale when they were put online at 9am this morning (Oct 19). The two concerts will take place on the 5th and 6th of December and will go towards raising funds for youth charity The Prince's Trust and The Foundation of Prince William and Prince Harry.
