Gary Barlow closing ceremony performance in doubt after death of baby daughter
Tuesday 07 August 2012
Take That star Gary Barlow's performance at the closing ceremony of the Olympics is uncertain after his baby daughter was delivered stillborn.
Barlow was rumoured to be taking part in the spectacle at the Olympic stadium on Sunday and is expected to make a decision by the end of the week.
A spokesman for Locog would not confirm that he had been lined up to play with his bandmates.
Barlow, 41, and his wife Dawn, 42, are in mourning after losing their fourth child. A statement issued through Barlow’s agent said: “Dawn and I are devastated to announce that we’ve lost our baby. Poppy Barlow was delivered stillborn on August 4 in London.
“Our focus now is giving her a beautiful funeral and loving our three children with all our hearts. We’d ask at this painful time that our privacy be respected.”
Ed Sheeran, George Michael, The Who and The Spice Girls are also said to be in the line-up for Sunday.
