Gary Barlow stranded by cyclone

The Take That man is stranded on an island near Papua New Guinea.

Gary landed in the Solomon Islands on Friday 30th March to film a documentary for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, but now has to wait for a search and rescue party to collect him and his crew.

'We're stranded on an island in the Solomons,' tweeted the singer this morning. 'There's a cyclone heading our way and there's no way off. Gonna have to sit it out!!

'Powers back on,' continued the 41-year-old star. 'The lovely government here are sending a search and rescue boat for us this morning #adventure.'

Gary is expecting his fourth child with his wife Dawn, and bandmates Mark Owen and Robbie Williams have also announced that they are expectant fathers.
