It's a far cry from his early days in Take That, having jelly mopped around his bottom and dancing about with a studded jockstrap over black cycling shorts, but Gary Barlow's risen through the ranks of celebritydom and is now so famous and great that the Queen's awarded him an OBE.
There's been whisperings of Gary getting a knighthood in the past week - not only did he put loads of effort into making the Queen's Diamond Jubilee concert just right for her majesty, he also went around the world to make a song to commemorate the Queen's 60th year on the throne.
The song, called Sing, was put together by Gary and Andrew Lloyd Webber. But Gary did most of the legwork - plodding around the Commonwealth, recording the music of lots of different creeds and cultures onto an iPhone and then taking it all home on a laptop and turning it into a soaring, heartfelt track.
According to The Sun's royal source: "The Queen was delighted with Gary Barlow’s brilliant work and dedication. She made it clear he should be rewarded at the first available opportunity.
“Mr Barlow was told of Her Majesty’s offer a few weeks ago. He was quite surprised, but he has accepted it.”
Well done, Gary!
