Gary shared a look at the card he had bought his wife, which read: "My Wifey for Lifey". He also hinted that he might be whisking Dawn away for a romantic holiday, as he shared a photo of a suitcase on Instagram Stories, writing: "Where's Mrs B off to? #20thanniversary."

The singer met Dawn in 1995 when she was a backing dancer on Take That's Nobody Else tour, and they tied the knot on 12 January 2000. The couple share three children together: Daniel, 19, Emily, 17, and Daisy, ten. Tragically, their fourth child, Poppy, was delivered stillborn.

Gary tries to keep his family out of the public eye, but did share another sweet photo of himself with Dawn in July in honour of her birthday. In the caption, he wrote: "Happy Birthday to my gorgeous Dawn. Nearly 25 years of her company and we’re still going strong. The kids and me will be making sure she has the best day."
