Gary Barlow sent topless photos to gay music boss

GARY620_1843819aGary Barlow sent topless photos of himself to music bosses in an attempt to kickstart his career. The singer sent a photo, alongside his demo, to gay music boss Nigel Martin-Smith, who gave him the opportunity to join Take That. James Corden will discuss Barlow's tactics in the forthcoming BBC documentary When Corden Met Barlow. Nigel Martin-Smith said of the topless photo: "It looks like Annie Lennox but I knew he could be hot property." He added that he knew Barlow would become a crucial part of his new boyband when he received the demo and photo back in 1990. "How could I refuse?" he said. When Corden Met Barlow airs on BBC One next Monday (May 5) at 9pm. Watch a trailer below: [youtube height="315" width="560"][/youtube]
