Take That star impressed by how amazing Marcus is at 23

Gary Barlow came over all modest last week.

Speaking at the Children In Need Rocks gig in Manchester, Gary, 40, admitted that Marcus Collins, 23, is ‘much better’ than he was at his age.

Gary didn’t expect Craig Colton, 22, to get voted off the show last Sunday and believes he too has a great career ahead of him.

‘I’m sometimes sat telling them things, thinking: “Who am I to tell them this?”,’ he admitted.

Never forget, Gary, at their age you and the Take That boys were writhing round nekkid in jelly for the Do What U Like video.

If anything, you’re overqualified.
