Gary Barlow is marking his 50th birthday - and his family and friends have inundated the star with wonderful tributes and gifts.

Giving fans a glimpse inside his celebrations, the Take That singer shared a handful of photos on social media of all the cards he has been sent - including a handwritten note, most likely to be from his youngest daughter, Daisy.

The card itself featured a large heart with several little colourful hearts inside. "I love you Daddy. Happy Birthday Daddy," the 11-year-old wrote across it.

"50 years young," he wrote in the caption, adding the lyrics which began with, "This man's 50 years young, God damn. 30 years of writing and the goal is the same. Heading up the charts is still my number one aim. What the hell do I do when my hair has all gone. As white as all my hair was back in 1991?"
