Gary Barlow reveals the reason behind his mad dash off stage during live BBC broadcast
Take That star Gary Barlow explained his reasons for dashing off stage during a live broadcast of BBC’s One Show and said he came close to fainting in front of the cameras.
The 46-year-old star was on the couch with bandmates Mark Owen and Howard Donald when he removed himself from the couch and departed the stage, much to the astonishment of presenters Angela Scanlan and Richard Osman.
"Can I leave you two to it? I don’t feel very well," Barlow said to his bandmates before getting up and leaving the set.
Taking to Twitter after the show, the singer told fans he felt faint under the bright lights of the BBC set and felt the need to get off the stage immediately.
Thank you all for the messages. I'm absolutely fine. We had a very hot dressing room and I thought I was gong to faint on live TV !— Gary Barlow (@GaryBarlow) March 31, 2017
"Thank you all for the messages. I'm absolutely fine. We had a very hot dressing room and I thought I was going to faint on live TV," he said.
Despite feeling unwell, the Take That star managed to gather himself for a live performance at the end of the programme, where the band performed their new single Giants.
