Gary Barlow typically keeps his personal life out of the spotlight, but previously delighted fans when he shared a rare photo of son Daniel to mark his 22nd birthday.

The Take That star, who is taking to the stage alongside Jason Orange and Howard Donald for King Charles' coronation concert on Sunday, took to Instagram last year to share a photo of himself standing alongside his son. The then 22-year-old towered over his father by a full head as the pair embraced each other while looking out to the sea. "Happy 22nd Birthday to our Dan. We love you mate and you make us so proud every day," Gary wrote at the time.

While many were quick to wish Daniel a happy birthday, many commented on his height, as one joked: "Big Dan is a unit! He could be a super hero."

A second said: "I guess you know how Mark feels in the group," while a third posted: "Aw what a fab photo, happy birthday to Dan #heshuge."

A fourth teased: "Are you kneeling? HAPPY BDAY DAN!" while a fifth simply added: "So tall."

Gary also shared a few more snapshots – taken by their son Daniel - from their sun-soaked family break at the time. "We're currently enjoying a family holiday," he said alongside a series of photos from a hike.

"As well as spending as much time as possible with everyone I also see a holiday as a great opportunity for exercise.

"I often simply don't have enough hours in a day due to work. Holiday means early mornings for me and a chance to try new ways of moving. Hikes, classes etc etc and wherever possible do it with the fam. Here's a few shots of D and me hiking - photography by Dan."
