Gary Barlow has denied reports that he is songwriting with One Direction star Harry Styles.

It was reported last week that the X Factor judge was collaborating with the ‘Little Things’ singer on some new tracks, after they met in New York a few weeks ago.

An insider worried 1D fans, who were already concerned about the chance of Harry going solo, when they reported that Gary offered to work on some new tunes with the hunk recently.

A source told The Sun:

“Gary has been over in New York working on music for a Broadway musicalversion of Finding Neverland.

“He heard Harry was in town and arranged to meet up.

“They had a great afternoon talking about Gary’s life in Take That as a young bloke and then more recently.

“Harry is an attentive guy and really listens. He likes keeping older company and soaks up as much advice as he can get.

“Gary talked him through his songwriting techniques and offered to write with him whenever they get the chance.”

However Gaz has poured cold water on the whole issue. A fan tweeted him to ask:

“@GaryBarlow Is it true that you and Harry Styles are writing together?” ”

The dad of three responded:

” *rubbish as usual*”

Gary also seemed to confirm that his man band Take That will reform for a new tour very soon. A Twitter user asked this week:

“@GaryBarlow should i start saving for a possible @takethat 2015 tour? ”

The ‘Million Love Songs’ hitmaker simply replied:


Mark Owen is currently pursuing a solo career but he recently admitted that Take That will never be over in an interview. He revealed that plans are afoot for more music and told Magic 105.4 FM:

”When we finished the Progress tour we all met up after we finished the last gig and everybody left that room going ‘We’ve got to do this again, we’ve had such a great time’ and I think that’s still the mentality behind it all… Everybody’s still up for doing more.”

Last month, another Twitter follower asked the Gaz:

“@GaryBarlow is Take That coming back next year? I need to start saving for my trip ✈”

He replied:


Another fan asked:


“@GaryBarlow are we going to see Take That in Denmark in 2015? 11”

Gary said:

“*oh yeh*”

We. Simply. Cannot. Wait!
