Even poor Gary Barlow has suffered some heartache in his love life, according to a new biography that is set to dish the dirt on his secret love life!
Biographer Sean Smith is set to release the story of Nicky Ladanowski and Gary Barlow’s super secrt relationship and how she broke his heart – he even wanted 10 kids with her!
Today, Barlow is one of Britain’s most-loved faces on the box but the 42-year-old has suffered his own fair share of heartache in the past as the chart-topping star paid a heavy price when he was younger.
His relationship with now 39-year-old actress Nicky Ladanowski has been kept top secret from his fans and the public alike, but now Sean Smith is set to spill the beans and dish the dirt on good ol’ Barlow.
The section of the biography tells how Take That’s manager imposed a girlfriend ban on the band, but besotted Gary still managed to see Nicky. However, in the end he grew too famous and he and Nicky had to grow apart, according to The Sun.
But, it wasn’t all bad as he’s been married to his current wife, Dawn for the past 13 years.
Smith says: “The problem was neither of them could have foreseen how much bigger Take That were going to become.”
Apparently, Barlow first met Nicky on the street in his hometown of Frodsham in Cheshire and check this out… at the time, he was with his then-girlfriend. He dropped her off at home and went to track down the mystery girl that had stolen his heart.
Smith adds: “She was slim, blonde and a knockout.
“Gary was taking great care in his personal appearance at this stage.
“He had invested in a sunbed, which he spent a lot of time on, and had what he imagined was the hippest tan in Frodsham.
“He had also invested in a new haircut that required a lot of spray to hold the spikiness in place.
“Their first kiss on the dancefloor of a small nightclub in Warrington was the start of a four-year relationship.”
He even presented Nicky with a diamond ring and told her he wanted to settle down with her. He spoke about “getting married, and having ten children, which made her gulp” – ohh err Gazza. Steady on!
However, one other shocking revelation in the book is that Nicky thought Gary was rude to Robbie Williams from the offset.
“She was alarmed he seemed to be giving Rob a hard time. A pal explained, ‘Nicky thought Gary was quite nasty about Robbie, who she thought was sweet. Robbie was just very young and he irritated Gary because he would never shut up’,” Smith writes in the book.
Poor Gazza had his heart broken, but I’m glad he never had those ten children afterall!
Meanwhile, former X Factor finalists JLS have set aside 1,000 tickets to their farewell tour at the O2 in London for family and friends.
“It’s hard to imagine how we are going to feel on the night,” Marvin Humes tells The Sun “Obviously, it’s the O2 – so it’s a great place to have a party. It’s our last show and hopefully we can accommodate everybody at the party afterwards as well.
“It’s such a momentous night for us. One thing about us that we like to party. So it will be no different on the night”.
