Gary Barlow sent topless photos to gay music boss

By Sam Rigby


Gary 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:
