Gary Barlow’s busy 2021
2021 was a busy year for Gary Barlow, Covid pandemic or not.
In November, the 50-year-0ld released his sixth studio album, a Christmas-themed album aptly named The Dream of Christmas.
Gary also collaborated with actress Sheridan Smith on a new Christmas song – How Christmas Is Supposed to Be. The duo were meant to be performing the song together during the Strictly Christmas special. However, Sheridan dropped out at the last minute, reportedly leaving the show in chaos.
