As Gary Barlow turns 45, we take a look back at the singer's musical and style evolution.
Gary had a strong understanding of music from a young age and taught himself to play the piano.
Barlow was talent spotted by manager Nigel Martin-Smith who saw the young star's musical potential.
Gary Barlow went on to join the boy band Take That in 1989 at the tender age of just 20-years-old.
The young singer was instantly recognisable thanks to his peroxide blonde hair!
From 1990-1996 Take That dominated the charts and scooped up awards with their emotional ballards.
Gary's biggest hit Back For Good, stormed the charts reaching no.1 in 31 countries!
Take That's chart successes during this time include All I Want Is You and Love Won't Wait.
Barlow is one of the most successful songwriters of the 90s, writing an incredible 25 hit singles.
Barlow was the lead singer and songwiter for the band until they split in 1996.
After Take That split, Barlow went on to have his own highly successful solo career.
Barlow's first solo single, the stunning Forever Love reached no.1 in the UK.
Take That reformed in 2005 without Robbie, and the reunion proved that the band was stronger than ever.
In 2006, Gary released a tell-all book My Take, which follows the singer's personal and public life.
Barlow has been awarded the prestigious Ivor Novello Awards no fewer than five times!
In 2012 Barlow was awarded an OBE for his work in charity and music.
In 2013 Gary tweeted the news: "After 14 long years I'm proud to announce my new solo album out on November 25th! I'm excited for u to hear it!" And we loved it!
He performed alongside Mark and Howard at our Heart Live gig in December.
