Take That's Gary Barlow on Blackpool Illuminations gig

Take That's Gary Barlow said he is stepping in as a last-minute replacement for The Script at the switch-on of the Blackpool Illuminations because he is "very fond" of the resort.

He said: "When I saw on the news they'd lost The Script for family reasons I thought 'I'm going to see if I can do this' and they have been kind enough to make a donation to BBC Children in Need."

The X Factor judge said it will be "good night" on Friday.
