When in Cannes! Gary Barlow has treated his Twitter fans to a cheeky photo of himself going for a midnight swim. The singer is in the French coastal town to promote his new show Let It Shine, but that didn't stop him from mixing business with pleasure. The Take That frontman went for a dip in the pool and was pictured grinning from ear-to-ear. "Someone had a little midnight swim," Gary wrote.
His fans were quick to comment on their pop idol, with several joking that Gary had gone skinny dipping. The photo proved too distracting for some followers who couldn't contain themselves, as one fan wrote, "Stop! I'm supposed to be working!!!!" while another posted: "You're killing me!!!" Gary, 46, has an incredibly loyal fan base and social media following. He opened his Instagram account just over a month ago, but the doting dad has already amassed more than 82,000 followers.

Not only has Gary been busy filming Let It Shine and promoting Take That's new album Wonderland, the singer is also set to play a cameo role in the new Star Wars film. Gary confirmed to Lorraine's Ross King: "I'm not a Stormtrooper, but I am in it." He then added: "Now that I've said that, I'll probably be out. I think the Star Wars people are so strict about what information [is out there]. So me saying that, I've probably just done myself out of a role."
Gary Barlow and wife Dawn plan to renew their wedding vows
His home life is looking just as rosy. Last week, the Back For Good singer showed fans his romantic side as he revealed that he and his wife Dawn are planning to renew their wedding vows. While filming An Evening with Take That and talking about future plans, Gary said: "I'd like to renew my wedding vows with my amazing wife. That's definitely on the agenda." The couple, who have been married for 17 years, will no doubt want their three children to be a part of their second wedding celebration. Gary and Dawn are parents to Daniel, 16, Emily, 14 and Daisy, eight.
