A Five-star review! Gary’s fury at ‘backing singers’ claim
GARY BARLOW has shot down claims that the winning band on Let It Shine will only have a bit part in The Band, his Take That musical.
Gary, the BBC One talent show’s head judge, denied claims that the group, Five To Five, will just be backing singers, saying AJ, Curtis, Nick, Sario and Yazdan will be on stage almost the whole time.
‘Let’s set this straight right now, I am very protective of the guys in the show,’ he said. ‘We are doing something that has never been done.
‘Our musical has three leads. One is The Band, the second leads are the young girls, and the third leads are the older girls. Our guys The Band are never off the stage.
‘I think we have an unbelievable band for this show. If we had gone round the country looking, I don’t think we would have got a better group.’
