Having had a busy weekend, it was back to work on Tuesday for Gary Barlow as he made his way to Manchester for the X Factor auditions. However it wasn't all bad for the star, who was a part of the Queen's Jubilee concert and specially commissioned song, 'Sing', as he was called Sir Gary for the whole day.
Revealing that it was Gary's fellow judge Louis who came up with the idea of calling him 'Sir' for the day, a source told the Mirror:
"The audience erupted into applause when Gary was introduced as ‘Sir Gary’when the judges walked on stage and began to take their seats.
“He was jokingly knighted by the warm-up man while Louis Walsh, sporting a new haircut, started calling him Sir Gary, too. The crowd then got behind him, chanting: 'Get Gary knighted!'"
Speaking about the concert, which saw the likes of Sir Elton John, Grace Jones and Cheryl Cole perform, Digital Spy reports Gary as saying:
"It was an amazing day - hopefully for the audiences at home watching and everyone there. Not only were the acts having a great time front of stage, the whole of the backstage area were having a good time as well... It was an amazing day for our country yesterday."
