London, Sep 1 (IANS) Singer Gary Barlow surprised a fan of Take That band on her wedding day, with a performance at the fan’s reception.
Bride Katie Hardy had no idea the “Back for good” singer was about to walk in on her wedding day after friends kept the secret for eight months, reports mirror.co.uk.
Even groom Stephen Hardy was kept in the dark, having booked a local Robbie Williams tribute act to fill in at the reception at the Three Nuns pub in Loughborough, Leicestershire, on Saturday.
But when the tribute singer finished his last number, Barlow walked on to the dance floor and belted out his former band Take That’s 2006 hit “Rule the world”.
Katie said: “The real Gary Barlow walked in, and I just couldn’t believe it. It was just the icing on the cake – I was speechless.”
The 33-year-old has been a Take That fan since she was eight.
She even has the names of the original band members tattooed on her arm.
Her friends and other die-hard fans put the couple’s names forward after Barlow launched a Twitter competition in January, vowing to sing at his most dedicated followers’ wedding.
