Gary and Dawn – a dancer on Take That’s 1995 Nobody Else tour – were married in 2000 and are parents to Daniel, 21, Emily, 19, and 12-year-old Daisy. In August 2012, they shared the heartbreaking news that their fourth child, daughter Poppy, was stillborn.
Back in September 2020, Gary revealed how his daughter Emily's original plans for university had been thwarted due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Gary and Dawn are still very much in love
During a chat on Zoe Ball's Radio 2 show, the doting dad said of his children: "They are pretty good, one is at university. One is taking a year off, was meant to be going to uni but she doesn't want to with all this going, on which I completely understand.
"Our youngest is 11 now, which is like… well they're not kids really anymore. Although, they always are to us."
