Gary Barlow has joined Instagram! The Take That star has already shared several snaps and videos with his fans – including a sneak peek of his band's new single, Giants. The star said 'hello' to Instagram by posting a photo of himself sat by a piano in a recording studio on Friday, and captioned the photo: "Big day tomorrow! Seems like a good time for my first ever post. Hello Instagram! Welcome to my world." He then followed the photo with a video of himself playing piano, writing: "Tomorrow at 8am #Giants is released…here’s a little tease from my favourite piano #takethat #TTGiants #Wonderland #helloinstagram."
Following the release of the new single, the star shared a photo of himself smiling for the camera while signing copies of the single, writing: "#Giants is out today! So proud of this new record. Can't wait to get out on the road and perform for you all. #TTGiants #takethat #Wonderland." Fans were quick to welcome the star to Instagram, with one writing: "Hello Gary! So good that you are here! I just adore your music!" Another added: "Welcome to Instagram Gaz!! Maybe Snapchat will be the next one you join?!"
Gary has had one busy year so far! As well as releasing new music, he has also been a judge on the new singing competition Let It Shine, which is looking for five men to star in a new musical based on the music of Take That. The star opened up to HELLO! magazine about the upcoming reality show, saying: "We're all excited. We're all producers of the show. This is our baby, really. It's a celebration of our career. Hopefully this music will live on way beyond our capability to perform. When we're in wheelchairs being pushed around an old folks' home, this musical will still be touring."
