Goodness, it feels like just yesterday that Gary Barlow was dressed up in leather and studs for Take That’s Do What You Like video.

But in actual fact that was way back in 1991, some twenty six years ago.

Gary Barlow has a 17-year-old son!

Yes, the pop superstar is father to a grown-up and rather dashing son called Daniel.

And what a fine-looking chap he is too.

But wait a minute.

Is it just us or does Daniel look the spit of his dad circa 1992?

The jawline, the brows, the eyes, they’re all there.

All that’s different is Gaz was a bleached blond back then.

We’re not alone in noticing this striking similarity.

Ever since Gary posted this snap on social media his  followers have been absolutely giddy that Daniel is very much a chip off the old block.

One fan squealed: “Holy [expletive]! I thought that was you from the 90s.”

Another said: “A young Gary!”, while other fans expressed their shock about the father and son’s likeness and how tall Daniel appeared to be in the picture.

Daniel was born the year Gary married wife Dawn in the year 2000.

Two years later they welcomed daughter Emily into their lives and, in 2009, Daisy joined the Barlow clan.

Dawn did fall pregnant with a fourth child in 2012 but sadly the child was delivered still born.

Although always handsome, Gary was constantly teased about his weight during his Take That years – but back in 2013 he shed five stone!

“I made big changes. I take exercise more seriously now and I’m big on well-being. I eat well, do an acupuncture session a week and I try to sleep well and do things to aid good sleep,” he said in an interview with the Mirror at the time.

“For years I did every diet going – Atkins, the works – and I couldn’t work out why I couldn’t sustain the weight loss.

“I’ve just not got the sort of body where I can pick and choose what I eat.

In 2013, Gary changed his food intake and lost five stone (Credit: Instagram)

“I’ve got to go for one thing and stick by it. So I’ve tried not to have sugar and caffeine, etc., and it’s boring, it’s really boring.

“But it works for me. The result is that I feel good.”
