It was perhaps an embarrassing revelation to make, but Gary Barlow has just admitted that he hasn't washed his hair for... 14 years. The Take That singer decided to share the news with his fans on Twitter and, unsurprisingly, left them stunned. "It's such an important day I've washed my hair! First time in ....... 14 years! #nojoke," Gary tweeted.
It appears the pop star was being deadly serious as he responded to some fans' jokes. One follower quipped "All by yourself?" to which Gary replied: "Ha yeh!!!! X." The Back for Good singer, 46, also joked around, saying he didn't have enough hair left when someone suggested dying it blonde again.
Gary Barlow left fans stunned with his revelation
Saturday was a special occasion to warrant Gary's hair washing... His new musical The Girls, which is based on the hit 2003 film Calendar Girls, officially opened on the West End. The musical features original material by Gary. Ahead of the premiere, the former X Factor judge shared a photo of the theatre all lit up and poignantly captioned it: "5 years ago this journey began and now we're here #westend."

It's been an exciting start to 2017 for Gary. His new TV show, Let It Shine, also aired for the first time this month. The Saturday night show looks for five young men to star in a new stage musical based on the music of Gary's popular boy band. The other current members of Take That – Mark Owen and Howard Donald – are involved too.
"We're all excited," Gary told HELLO! magazine. "We're all producers of the show. This is our baby, really. It's a celebration of our career. Hopefully this music will live on way beyond our capability to perform. When we're in wheelchairs being pushed around an old folks' home, this musical will still be touring."
